The Best Wine To Drink If You're A Gemini

Gemini, born between May 21 and June 20, are represented by the celestial twins, and if you are one or know one, you know that it would truly take two people to fully pursue all the interests and passions that a Gemini holds dear (via Allure). This air sign is all over the place, but it isn't because they're scatterbrained or two-faced as they sometimes get a bad rap for; it's because they truly care about so many people, so many causes, and so many personal and professional pursuits and ideas, that it's hard for them to stay focused on one thing for too long. 

One thing that might be a seriously fun interest for a Gemini to dive into is wine culture, as there are countless varieties of wine, each with their own complex histories, taste profiles, regions of origin, and fanbases. And while we would never suggest you limit your infinite appetite for learning and trying things to just one or two types of wine, astrologers and wine experts alike do have some guesses as to which wines you're likely to love most while you're exploring. 

Wines to try if you're a Gemini

The folks at Wine Cellar suggest that the best white wine for a Gemini is a Sauvignon Blanc. This is thanks in large part to how different Sauvignon Blancs can be depending on the region they hail from. For instance, a Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand is likely to be acidic with notes of citrus and grass, while a Sauvignon Blanc from France tends to be softer, with less citrus and more florals (via Wine Folly). The body of the wine can also vary from region to region and vineyard to vineyard, so this might be a great way for a Gemini to commit to a favorite without ever sacrificing variety and adventure. 

If you're in the mood for something different, consider a sparkling wine, which Wine Country says is a perfect match for a Gemini as there are so many varieties and each one can turn any moment into a celebration, something Geminis are wonderful at doing. You don't have to just stick with Champagne or Prosecco, either. Try a sparkling rose on a lovely spring day or a sparkling riesling for a hint of sweetness with the bubbles.   

Other wine Gemini might enjoy

Interestingly, while it's rather different from a Sauvignon Blanc, which was Wine Cellar's best guess for a Gemini-friendly white wine, Astrologer Skye Alexander tells Eating Well that she would most highly recommend a Pinot Grigio for her Gemini friends. Her reasoning is that like people born under this air sign, Pinot Grigio is easy-going, uncomplicated, universally enjoyable, and fun at a party. In fact, Pinot Grigio is one of those easy-drinking wines that is enjoyable to sip while getting lost in conversation (as Geminis are known to do), since nothing about it will smack you in the face and distract you from the topic at hand. 

That said, it is far from boring! A good glass of Pinot Grigio should evoke gentle tastes of fruits like peach, lemon, lime, and nectarine while often offering a hint of honey or ginger and a simple, dry mineral note (via Wine Traveller). Perfect to enjoy on a veranda with friends on a summer day while you discuss your latest favorite movie, hobby, or obsession, Dear Gemini!
