I prefer the red wine because it´s good for my heart and I can sleep well after drinking it. Of course I only drink it at night time before going to bed. If I drink it at day time, I need a pizza to eat. Weird!
Red. White wine makes me ill and gives me headaches. I wonder why? I dislike the sweetness of most white wines. For reds I like a good Oregon Pinot Noir, any merlot, syrah, malbec, blends ....ok all of them. My favorite is a blend out of a winery from Roseburg, OR--Palotai Winery. He makes a beautiful wine called Bulls Blood made from grapes brought over from his native country of Hungary. It's earthy and full bodied with hints of blackberry and spice. Yummy. My favorite wine hands down.
I prefer to drink white wine if I must choose red or white. But if I want to drink a bottle then I'll get a fresh bottle of rose/blush. When it come to a rose it must be fresh, not more than 1-2 years old, over $10 per bottle, and def not from a BOX. Haha.
Come on now! Don't forget those of us that frequent redneck bars.
According to a gum-popping waitress in a Pub in Virginia, the choices are;
RED, WHITE or PINK
Red, specially a well-oaked Rioja or a good rich Malbec. I also like Montepulciano d'Abruzzo and have found that some Cabernet Sauvignon from Bulgaria,which is designated by appellation, can be an excellent wine at a bargain price. There is also one particular Chilean brand, called Long Slim, which is very cheap and yet most enjoyable.
I love a good Merlot, but honestly, as I've gotten older I've found that it simply doesn't agree with me anymore. Even after just one or two glasses my head starts throbbing!
I drink way more RED than White. I love just about any RED from Napa, Cab Sav's mostly, but I also Like Australian Shiraz. (Mollydooker, Yellow Tail).
Then of course the blends (Meritage), Red Zins (real Red Zins not pink -- Sin Zin, etc), ...
Lately I've been going back to some of the inexpensive French Red's -- (Cotes du Rhone --- awesome and under 20 bucks -- but tannic (which I like) -- Chateaunauf-du-Pape --- which fyi, are not meant to be kept but drank right away -- awesome wines for under 20 bucks)
but, having said all that, I love a good Chardonnay at times. One of my all time favorite wines is Far Niente's Chardonnay(Napa Valley) I also enjoy some of the lighter whites, especially in the summer -- Caymus Conundrum is a great white wine usually around 30 bucks. PS I live in NH so I get great values, I rarely ever spend more than $20 bucks on a bottle these days. Perhaps when I hit 100 hubs I'll splurge
So to answer your question, I would say mostly Napa Red, some French Red, sometimes Australian shiraz, and sometimes Napa White.
90 percent Red, 10 percent White.
Hmm. I want white! And the sweeter the better.
Truth be told, though, I'm not a wine expert. I just like sweet stuff. I'd probably drink a bottle of Boone's Farm quicker than some classic vintage.
I bet you would have liked Baby Duck
I love a good sweet red wine, not dessert sweet, just a little I also enjoy a good glass of Pino Grigio once in a while, but red is definitely my go to.
I know it was not one of the options but I like rose/pink.
Depends on what I'm eating with it. Even the best red or best white will taste off if its paired with food that doesn't compliment the acidity, flavors, etc.
That said....white. There are plenty of flavorful and not sweet whites. I'm a huge fan of New Zealand Sauvignon Blancs, French Gewürztraminer, and Oregon pinot gris.
Red gives me a headache, but a good Oregon Pinot or inexpensive French Burgundy is worth it, though.
The french also produce some great rose (which unfortunately is difficult to get in the US because that damned white zin gave rose a bad name).
I always have to be cautious with wine debates as I actually have a very good friend who has a vineyard. My assertion that there are no good wines available that are produced in the Northern Hemisphere doesn't tend to go down well...
I honestly believe that all good wines come from south of the equator - namely and above all, Australia. For me, Australian red wines are the definitive red wines of the planet - bar none. South Africa and Chile also do have a few acceptable productions.
California is unquestionably the capital of the Northern Hemisphere's wine producing regions. There are a few from there that I quite like.
Unfortunately, I hate European wines - all of them. They're like vinegar. The unfortunate reality is that they are appreciated for their snob value, not their taste - but as most of us know, that is the European way. The guy next to you assures you it is exquisite, so it must be - not with me! French wine is great on chips with salt - never in a glass...
Red white upsets my stomach, although I will cook with white.

This is a question that has been bothering me for a while now about which colour wine is more popular, do you prefer a glass of red or white? No being cheeky and putting 'both' or rose, we need a definitive answer here...
