Hello wine lovers
I went to Vina Robles a few weeks ago and met with Liv and Rob, a musical duet that performed live at the vineyard. I sat down with them individually and Simone Michel, Director of Customer Relations and Marketing. They spoke about the live event.

So what do studies say?
The Washington Post wrote an article that states that most Americans prefer red wine over white. According to the article, only Nebraska, Kansas, and Iowa purchase more whites then red. And North Carolina, Mississippi, Michigan, and Pennsylvania buy red wine about 60 percent of the time.
The rest of the states also preferred red over white, but it didn’t approach the same percentage as the four other states mentioned. No data existed for Utah, South Dakota, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Alabama, Kentucky, Indiana, Rhode Island, and Alaska.
So the numbers suggest that the majority of wine drinkers are purchasing more red wines then white. What do you guys think? Red or White? Leave a comment and explain which type of wine you prefer.
