White wine is much more pleasant to drink. I always imagined that the flavors of most red and white wines would be the opposite where reds were sweet and white wine was much more bitter or sour, but looks are deceiving.
A friend of mine actually works at a winery in Florida, so I had the opportunity to taste a lot of different types. I had one really good red wine once, but it was home made and at a party where a kid had taken it from his dad's wine cellar, but it was definitely better than most store bought red wines I had tried before.
I gotta give it to White. Although I'm not an avid wine drinker, I've had it at a few special occasions, and I do tend to lean towards white. It tastes better, and it seems a lot smoother for the most part. That's not to say the red wine I had was bad, it just wasn't as pleasant to drink, and it's probably not something I'd buy (whereas I'd definitely buy white wine).
Red, of course! It fits formal occasions and has an, in my opinion, much more nuanced taste!
But I suppose you really have to learn how to drink it. Most of my best friends happen to be German, and some of them are a bit.... well, posh and they like to do everything as formal as possible. I don't think I would have discovered red wine as much if I would not have been hanging out with them
I've only ever had one sip of red wine. It was Merlot and I nearly threw up. It's like cough syrup times ten.
Now, when I smell any red wine, I gag.
And I work in a small restaurant where the job of making and serving drinks always falls to me so that's pretty often, actually.
