The debate between white vs red wine is a never-ending one, but the same way champagne is associated with celebration, red wine (dry red varietals that is) is associated with romance thus the best option for any date night. Red wine pairs well with red meats and rich chocolates. If you prefer white wines, then pair your red meat dinner with an assertive chardonnay.
Ideally what you are looking for on date night is a wine that pairs well with your dinner options for the evening, that’s if you are having dinner, but in case you aren’t really going to have dinner, the best wine option for date night is a full-bodied red wine, such as a cabernet sauvignon. An Italian study showed that ladies that drank +2 wine glasses a day had a higher sex drive than teetotallers while a 2012 study showed that men who drank it had more testosterone.
In a nutshell, full-bodied red wines (dry red wines) make people hornier, it’s science. Did you know that also just smelling wine can increase your libido? (a conversation for another day, let’s get into our top 5 date night wine list)
Remember though, the final verdict on what works best is always about what does your palate prefers.
