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 folks!
I like them both, love a nice fruity red Merlot, but I also enjoy a good Sauvignon Blanc and a nice German white if it is a good quality one.
I prefer white as I found a few years ago the red wine was giving me really bad headaches. With the white I do not have the same reaction. Not sure why, I suppose I should research this and find out why. I do love both red and white though.
I prefer red. Perhaps, it is because I used to drink coconut wine reddened with food coloring or something.
I can drink either but my preference if I'm buying it is RED-RED-RED
I prefer red wine, but I hate that it makes my teeth and lips red.
Nine times out of ten I will choose red wine. I prefer the taste. It doesn't have to be served chilled, therefore it doesn't take up space in the fridge. It generally goes with whatever meal I am cooking. I will have white on a really hot day if I am looking for a cool alternative to beer or a wine cooler.
I'm not much of a wine drinker but when I do I prefer white.
I actually prefer a blush like Zinfindel but I've recently started drinking the reds like Shiraz, and Merlot .
...with a meal, depends on what i'm eating...
...just to have a glass, red....
...love having a sparkling white (one glass only) once in a while...
...love a good ice wine too after a really good meal rather than dessert - white
I prefer a good Merlot or Cab but will partake in a Pinot Noir if it's a good one. White wine is for sissies.
Most def. white. Red makes my ears hurt for some reason and often makes my throat feel like it is swelling up or something and then after just a few sips I end up with a terrible headache.
I don't know why white or even pink wine doesn't do that to me.
Red wine contains a heck of a lot of tannins, which some folk find irritating on the throat/palate due to it's acidic coarseness. Red wine also contains high levels of histamine which again some folk suffer headaches from.
Drinkers of white wine usually don't find these effects.
red cab. I love everything about it including it's gorgeous color in the proper wine goblet. chateau st. michelle is excellent.
Australia has a huge wine industry even though we are usually more known as beer consumers.
I have a preference for Reds , cab sav's, cab merlot, yet as I have become older I am preferring more whites, especially Verdelho's & Chardonnay.
Riesling is my least favorite as I will suffer Chateau De Box (cask wine in a box) wines over this plonk.
The sweeter the better! My palate can only handle chilled, fruity, sweet wines. I do not consider myself a fine wine connoisseur because I can not stand the dry wines that are best drank at room temperature. But I am a large quantity oonsumer of all chilled sweet wines. Bring on the Reislings, Ausleses, and don't forget the Reunite Lumbrusco or D'Oro. What can I say!!! I'm s cheap date.
Depends on your entree' assuming that this is with a meal. The conventions are along these lines. Red for your red meats and sauces, white for your white meats and sauces. Just sitting around slurping? White Zin.
I generally prefer reds, but especially when it's cold outside (they seem more "warming"). Whites are better when it's hot outside.
Pinot Noir and I like it chilled. Must be the redneck in me.
I like them both however, white wine prefers me and red wine gives me a killer headache!
Ummm..lol do u mix your red and white? if you r having both on the table?please let me, as I have no idea on wine as I dont do wine...
mistress of spice
White wine during the day if it's hot outside, but for the rest of the time, red wine, the drier the better. Tastes change as we age and try new things, once I'd acquired a taste for red wine, it was hard going back.
Anyone for a red? It goes so well with red meat, cheese, pasta, well anything really.
I tried both wines. but I like Red wine the most..
I just love it..
I prefer a good red even over champagne. However I once had an unbelievably brilliant chablis. Bought the same wine again and inexplicably didn't taste the same. I am a smoker and I find if I have smoked too many cigs it affects the old tastebuds.
looks like red is the clear fav .
It all depends on when i am drinking wine, with food, it depends upon the meal, if I am just drinking wine, most often red, but now and then whit.
Totally depends on the season, for the cooler months a lovely glass of Red Wine to warm you up, in the Summer months, a glass of bubbles goes down a treat. Moet always!
I actually prefer a good glass of red wine with a more fruity flavour. However since having my child I find that I am no longer able to drink more than one glass at a time (even one gives me a headache) so I find myself turning to White wine, of which there are some very nice ones available at some not so expensive prices either.
So after all this, I suppose the answer to the question is both but only the white likes me!
I am rather picky on what wine I have with what, it really depends on what I am going to be eating with it.
If I am having a glass of wine on its own (no food, cheese or snacks) most of the time I would go for red, I am rather partial to the Haut Medocs. Otherwise, I would have champagne.
Like others have said, it does depend what I am eating. Usually I drink red with food, but white if I'm having an indian.
If I'm just drinking wine without food, I will always pick white, as red gives me 'victorian teeth' - not a look I'd like when at a bar!
Honostly, I thought I liked red wine better. Then I realized I've hardly tried any white wine. And the ones I remember trying were actually good. So undecided on this one.
Red, Rioja mainly, i find white wine too acidic, especially cheap bottles!
Considering the pros and cons of both, I would have to choose..
Red. It's not so acid so it's easier to taste better all the flawors. They are good whites too, but usually at a higher price.
I love red wine and will always prefer it over white. My favorite wine is from Castello Vicchiomaggio, a Chianti Classico riserva, La Prima.

Can anyone recommend a good red or white wine for a tasting?I am throwing a wine tasting for some of my girl friends for fun, and more so to familiarize myself with red wines. I haven't really found any red wine I am too crazy about. Thanks in advance!

Red wine or white wine?There is a variety of wine that folks can enjoy. Yet most seem to draw their attention towards Red or White wine.
