“Bottle of red, bottle of white, it all depends on your appetite.”
With all due respect to Billy Joel, those words would never be uttered in an Italian restaurant. Your choice of red or white depends on a lot more than your appetite. What about flavor and food pairings and alcohol content? What about tastes from aging and depth of color and structure of the wine as it hits your palate?
While reds and whites are both in the wine family, they are much more like cousins than they are siblings. They have the same family tree – well, it’s really a vine – in that they’re both from grapes. But from that point forward, they are very different drinks.
Whether you’re looking to impress your next date or give the right bottle of wine as a gift, read on to learn about the differences between reds and whites.
There are so many differences between these two types of wines, but within both reds and whites, there are also many different flavors and structures and tastes. The danger comes when you give in to the temptation to lump all of one kind together. “I don’t like reds because they’re too okay” or “White wines aren’t my jam because they are too acidic.”
Our recommendation? Maybe Billy Joel was right after all. Listen to your appetite and what you’re craving. When you’re cooking dinner at home, whether it’s Italian food or not, don’t be afraid to keep experimenting with both kinds. Try a lot of different bottles from a lot of different wineries and regions of the world. We know you’ll find many different kinds in both the red and the white wines that you’ll enjoy!
