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 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.
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.
Sandra, 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.
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.
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 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.
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!
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!
Currently, my favorite is Naked Grape merlot. It's an unoaked wine and Canadian.For Christmas dinner, I am having Fat Bastard Cabernet Sauvignon. It is also a favorite wine.What are your favorite wines?
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...
