The ultimate Way for Choosing Wine on a First Date

First dates are nerve wracking enough without having to worry about what wine to choose to impress your new friend!

One of the great things about wine on a date is that one bottle is a defined amount, normally about five glasses.

If shared equally it is unlikely that you will fall off your chair drunk after half a bottle of wine!

However, there are some other social sins that can be committed whilst choosing wine on a date.

White Wine

  • The main ingredient in white wines is white grapes, and these grapes have no skins or seeds.
  • Most white wines have a light and fruity taste, but there are certain varieties of white wines that have a richer taste.

Red Wine

  • Red wines are made with dark red and black grapes. red wines are produced with whole grapes, including the skin.
  • The skins add color and flavor to red wines and this is the reason why these wines have a richer flavor.
  • Red wines are the preferred type of wines in major wine-making countries such as Italy and France.
  • Red wines have most of the healthbenefits of white wines, and they can contribute to your health in other ways as well.
  • Since they contain the skins of grapes, red wines have a powerful type of antioxidants called resveratrols.
  • Resveratrols offer excellent protection for your blood vessels, and they can eliminate blood clots as well.

Getting Started

  • First, you need to decide whether you want white, red, rosé or sparkling wine. This is perhaps the most important decision.
  • As a general first date rule, red wine is more of an acquired taste and it can be harder to select a good red.
  • Therefore, when you do not know your companion’s tastes it may be wise to steer clear of the red wine section.
  • Sparkling wine can make you appear a little pretentious or if you go for a cheaper version, a tightwad; so this is usually best avoided.
  • If you are not sure whether your companion likes wine at all, rosé wine is often a safe option as it often lacks the sharpness that people commonly dislike in wines.

How Much to Spend

  • Remember more money doesn’t always mean more quality.
  • If you are very new to wine, go for a house white. Therefore A house white is unlikely to be extremely imaginative or unusual, but is almost always perfectly drinkable.
  • For this reason it is a safe, middle of the road option.
  • If you want to impress, look for something other than the house white. Keep away from extremes until you know your companion a little better, so don’t go for bone dry whites.
  • Instead, opt for a fruity dry wine that appeal to those who like both dry and medium whites.
  • So whilst neutral wines may seem like a bit of a cop-out, bear in mind that you simply want a drinkable wine that does not offend.
  • If you are really not sure what to choose, why not offer your companion a choice of glasses as an aperitif while you have a beer or spirit.
  • This way you can judge your companion’s taste. Even if they select a spirit, you can still get a measure of whether they prefer sweet or dry wines.
