Red or White

This is the basic decision that most people make. Choosing a red or white wine is pretty much the starting when looking for new wines for your particular taste. While both wine can offer a"full bodied" taste, it is important to understand the basic differences between red and white wines.


Red wines usually have more of a dark fruit taste. These are fruits such as strawberries, cherries, blueberries, and even a cranberry flavor component.

White wines have a higher acidity level, rightly so as they usually embody the citrus flavors of lemon, lime, and grapefruit. These wines are more tropical in their bouquet and have a much lighter persona to them. The white wines also come with a little more oak flavor, as they tend to pick up the flavor of the barrel they were aged in.
