Drink up! It's in the stars.
Astrologers believe that the positions of the sun, moon, and planets at the time of your birth have a direct influence on your character — so why shouldn't they also have an influence on what you drink when it's time for wine?
Let the stars be your sommelier:
Aries (March 21 - April 19)
Your perfect pairing is with an Orange wine. You like to stand out in a crowd, so the ho-hum red or white isn't right for you; you need something fresh and vibrant. Orange is the new rosé. While it technically is a white wine, it's made like a red, giving it its orange color and tart flavor.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
It's a Barolo for you. Like all royalty, you enjoy the finer things in life, which makes this King of wines perfect for you.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
Mystery solved! Zinfandel is the wine for you. You take time to get to know others, and a Zinfandel is the same. If you took a sip right away with a Zinfandel, you'd only taste alcohol. But let it decant for 30 minutes and you'll be well rewarded with rich, delicious flavors.
Leo (July 23 - August 22)
For someone with champagne dreams and a champagne life, champagne is the obvious choice for you. YOLO is your motto, and you want the best of the best to enjoy this life.
Virgo (August 23 - September 22)
Virgos are known for being picky, so Pinot Noir should be your pick. As a Virgo, you appreciate attention to detail and that's exactly how Pinot Noir is made. The delicate grapes need to be exactly right, or the Pinot Noir won't make it.
Libra (September 23 - October 22)
The matter has been carefully weighed by the constellations, and they say Riesling is best for you. You get along with almost everyone and this delicately balanced wine can be paired with almost anything — just like you!
Scorpio (October 23 - November 21)
Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21)
The wine of the mighty Teran is perfect for the mightiest of the signs. You love making connections with people and this Slovenian wine with its big flavor isn't like anything you've had before.
Capricorn (December 22 - January 19)
Aquarius (January 20 - February 18)
In the dawning of the Age of Aquarius, your wine should be a Biodynamic wine. You're known for being open-minded, and for having progressive views. You like trying new things, and if you haven't tried a Biodynamic wine you need to get on it NOW.
Pisces (February 19 - March 20)
You're imaginative and adaptable, and you need a wine like Petillant Naturel. You hate labels and being put in a box. You're an individual first and foremost, and you need a wine that will keep people guessing.
There are many benefits to drinking wine and now you know the perfect wine for you. Drink up! It's in the stars.
