The Best Wine To Drink If You're A Scorpio

Scorpio's most well-known traits have quite the reputation, though when they reveal their sign to a crowd, they're often met with the acknowledgment that there's more to them than meets the eye. If you're born between October 23 and November 21, you fall under the Scorpio sign, and the main traits of this zodiac are intense. According to Cosmopolitan, Scorpios are known for being controlling, obsessive, and secretive. This often plays out in their relationships, causing them to take a more extreme approach to their friendships and love lives. That intensity also plays out positively, though, as most Scorpios are known to be fiercely loyal and passionate.


According to Allure, those on a Scorpio's good side will reap the benefits of a great, lifelong friend. Once trust is formed, Scorpios are that friend you go to when you need serious connection and a strong pep talk. With all this emotion, Scorpios seek different ways to unwind and often turn to a glass of wine to take the edge off. As a water sign, Scorpios are usually the ones to keep up with on a night out (via Thrillist). While their alcohol of choice is probably something strong, like tequila, this dark and moody sign also loves their wine (via Elite Daily).

Scorpios like their wine dark

As a mysterious sign, everyone gets things wrong about Scorpios. Their secretive nature and unpredictable moods often lead people to think that this sign is dark and moody (via Allure). And while this may be true of some (or a Scorpio on a bad day), those that fit in this water sign are actually much more complex. Always a few steps ahead of others, Scorpios never do anything without thinking, which is why their wines of choice are often a bit obscure.


According to Just Wine, the best wine for a Scorpio is a cabernet sauvignon. This red wine is dry and has a very low sweetness factor, which can mirror the personality of a true Scorpio. According to, the best Cabernet Sauvignon you can buy, if you want to splurge, is the 2016 Château Pape Clément Pessac-Léognan, but if you'd like to take this red for a spin without breaking the bank, consider trying Substance Cabernet Sauvignon, which is a steal at around $15 a bottle. Still, if a deep red wine is not to your taste, there are other wines a Scorpio is sure to love.

It's all about the alcohol content for a Scorpio

Whether you crave a cold, crisp glass of white wine on a sunny afternoon or a bold room-temp red after a long day, most Scorpios have one thing in common: They want to get tipsy. According to Eating Well, many Scorpios are looking for something with a high alcohol content. Enter Zinfandel. At 17 percent, it has the highest alcohol content of all fortified wines. For a splurge, Food & Wine suggests the 2018 Alquimista Cellars Jessie's Grove Ancient Vine Zinfandel Lodi for $57 or the 2017 Decoy Zinfandel 2017 Sonoma County for more of a bargain at $25 a bottle.


Besides alcohol content, though, most Scorpios stick to a bottle of red. For example, this could be a malbec wine, which, according to The Wine Cellar Group, may appeal to this sign, as the grapes are difficult to grow, much like a Scorpio can be, well, difficult. A pinot noir, with its dark, rich flavor, also appeals to the water sign (via Spoon University). No matter which type you tend to go for, you're sure to find a bit of a reprieve from your intense mind with these wines.
