Wine pairing is definitely something that can end up being disastrous or delicious. When we think of wine pairings, our minds probably go right to our favorite dinner dish.
However, you can also pair wine with your horoscope sign. To help, we are going to offer our recommendations to try based on each horoscope sign.
Without further ado, raise your astrological wine glasses in preparation for a few pours of some delicious and exciting wines that will spark your imagination and pair well with your personality.
Aries (March 21 – April 19)
Aries is described as both bold and courageous, so it only makes sense to try a chardonnay. However, you may also want something that is just as original as you are and, in that case, orange wine is a good choice. It never hurts to find something big and complex, just as challenging as your personality can sometimes be.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
As a Taurus, you have a love of the good life and luxury, which means you tend to love the finer things in life. Your wine is no exception. For this reason, you should try Red Burgundy. It is one of the pricier wines you can choose.
On the other hand, a Taurus is also known for their warmer side which makes Malbec a good wine to try. Its mix of plums, berries, and spice will give you that warmth.
Gemini (May 21 – June 21)
Sweet and sour is a good way to describe a Gemini. With that in mind, it also makes sense that with this dual personality, you will want to try Riesling. It can be dry and sugary but also has that bright acidic quality you will love with citrus notes that are just perfect.
Zinfandel is another wine that fits nicely with your sign because it shows off its versatility just as well as you do. It shows you yet another side that gets better with every sip.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
Zinfandel wine takes some time to reach the best flavor, and the same can be said of someone rocking the Cancer sign. Cancers also do not like confrontation either and will shrink back into their shells to protect themselves.
While personality is one that is strong-willed, they are also helpful to others. Another great choice of wine would be a Rioja. It is just as strong and as powerful as this star sign.
Leo (July 23 – August 22)
Leos are bold and shine brightly in a crowd, much in the same way that good champagne does. It is bubbly and effervescent. However, Leos are also romantic and dignified which means a Cabernet Sauvignon should also make the list of wines to try.
Virgo (August 23-September 22)
Virgos know how to pay attention to detail, and they often get things right on their first try. They are both sophisticated and pure while remaining practical and reliable. Sauvignon Blanc is a perfect representation of this. It has a more down to earth personality but is bright with citrus notes and just as balanced as you are.
Libra (September 23 – October 22)
Balance is a goal in life for Libras because once they find this balance, they will also find beauty. Out of all the star signs, they are also one of the most charming, and they have a personality everyone around them loves. Pinot Noir is much of the same. Just as a Libra can easily pair with anyone, so can this wine.
Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)
Scorpios are full of passion, and they tend to have a bold personality. This means they should try a wine that can stand up to this boldness like a full-bodied and rich Syrah. It is a darker wine with a spicy bite.
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)
Clear thinking and not afraid to speak their minds are those that rock the Sagittarius sign. They have the impeccable ability to see the bigger picture in things. They are also adventurous and should try a wine that can take them to new places. This wine is a Malbec or even a bottle of Sauvignon Blanc.
Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)
Capricorns appreciate the classics and love anything that is considered timeless or traditional. For this reason, Cabernet Sauvignon is the perfect pairing for their personality. It is a glass of wine that can be indulgently enjoyed after a long hard day of work.
Capricorns also love to have a position of power, and for this reason, Chablis is another wine to add to the list. It takes the right person to really appreciate it due to its chalkiness. It is a hit or miss with many other people.
Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)
If you love to try new things and love all things different or unique, then you are probably an Aquarius. Spanish Sangria is definitely something to try and will appeal to those eclectic tastes and shine right along with your personality.
However, for those times that you just want to sit back, relax, and contemplate life, Viognier is a smooth and simple drink to complement the occasion.
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
Pisces are emotional people while also creative, spiritual, and artistic. Many often say that Pisces see life through rose-colored glasses. Therefore, a delicious glass of rosé is all that you need to be lifted off into your imagination. Rosé champagne is vibrant and bubbly. It shares many of the same characteristics as your likable personality.
So next time you are looking for a wine to try, you should consider your star sign and then use that to choose. Trying wine should be a fun experience and not something you approach with disdain or frustration.
However, many require a bit of guidance in choosing a wine to perfectly top off the perfect date night or a long day of work. We hope this guide is a good starting off point as you find new wines to fit your sign.
