Things You Should Know About Wine

A palette for wine is something every Sugar Baby should develop. While not every wine will be your favorite and some might give you a terrible hangover, it’s no secret: Sugar Daddies love wine.

It’s expensive, it can be rare, and it’s chic. Obviously rich men will go crazy for it. Don’t be the belle at the ball who doesn’t know a Pinot Grigio from a Pinot Noir. If you just said “huh?” please keep reading to learn things you should know about wine.

Main Types

Most wine you’ll drink with a Sugar Daddy will be red or white, with a random Moscato thrown in there. The four basic types of white wine are Chardonnay, Pinot Grigio, Sauvignon Blanc, and Riesling. The four main types of red are Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Malbec. There are about a zillion types of wine, but from my experience these are the types people like and restaurants tend to carry.

Notice some of the wine phrases are very similar, though they are not even the same color. Learn them. Remember them, and you won’t feel like an idiot when you thought it was a red and the waiter brings you a white.

What should you order?

I would suggest either of the Pinots (Grigio = white, Noir = red) since they’re on the lighter side and fairly easy for most people to get into. You’ll have to try many different types to know what you like. It’s an acquired taste, as I’m sure you’ve heard. Be open minded, and you’ll learn to like it if you don’t at first. Price, however, should not affect your decision. My boojie uncle told me once: There are two kinds of wine: The kind you like, and the kind you don’t. And price has nothing to do with it.

Tasting Your Wine

Ever wondered why people smell their wine before drinking it? Taking a big whiff of that scent fills your nasal passage with delicious winey aroma that enhances the flavor of the wine. Some people even slurp it – yes, grown men and women slurping – because it oxidizes the wine in your mouth and when the liquid mixes with oxygen, it opens up the flavors. This is the same reason some people like to let a wine “open up” before drinking it, meaning they open the bottle and let it sit there before pouring.

Basic Flavors

There are two basic spectrums that wine flavors fall along. The first is dry to sweet. Some wines have a bitter finish, and are sometimes shocking to your taste buds: this is a dry wine. You already know what sweet is, Sugar! The other spectrum is light to full-bodied. That basically has to do with the calorie and alcoholic content, but also the overall feel of the wine in your mouth. Full-bodied wines tend to linger and have a bigger taste than the lighter ones. There are a few other flavors like tannin and acidity, which are great questions to ask your wino Sugar Daddy!

Just remember not to get too fucked up. Happy drinking!
