Letting the stars decide what to drink tonight = wine not? Here's your perfect pairing based on your zodiac sign.
March 21 – April 19
Energetic. Bold. Spicy. All words to describe you, Aries—and all words to describe a glass of syrah (also known as shiraz), which is a little smoky with hints of plum and pepper. In the mood for something else? Here’s a complete guide to red wines.
Taurus: Sauvignon Blanc
April 20 – May 20
You like the finer things in life, Taurus, so the next time you reach for a bottle, make it sauvignon blanc. With its herbal notes and citrusy aromatics, this white wine is just the level of sophistication you crave. Psst! Here’s how to plan the perfect wine tasting party.
May 21 – June 20
As a Gemini, you’re the life of the party no matter where you go. The next time you’re holding court with your friends, pop a bottle of something as bubbly as you are, like champagne (we love these ones that are all under $20!).
June 21 – July 22
Thanks to its fruity flavors and easy-to-drink taste, malbec is a real crowd-pleaser. And that’s exactly what you care most about, Cancer: making everyone feel welcome and happy. If you want to go an extra step, follow this simple trick to making any wine taste better.

July 23 – August 22
Summer is not only Leo season, but it’s also rosé season. So it makes sense that the trendy wine is as fun and playful as Leos tend to be. To find your favorite bottle any time of the year, visit one of the best wineries in every state.
August 23 – September 22
You 100% believe that you shouldn’t fix something that isn’t broke, Virgo. In other words, you’re a traditionalist, through and through. So, of course, you’re meant for a bottle of chardonnay, which is a classic yet complex wine that continues to be a favorite no matter what trends come and go. Here’s what to make if you have a little left in your bottle.
September 23 – October 22
With the scales for your symbol, Libra, you crave balance in every aspect of your life—including your wine. And while any truly good wine is also balanced, riesling is notoriously the perfect blend of acidic and sweet. Salut!

Scorpio: Pinot Noir
October 23 – November 21
Let’s face it, Scorpios—you’re arguably the most misunderstood of all the signs. That’s because, like a glass of pinot noir, you’re a little complex (you prefer deep conversations to small talk) but incredibly satisfying once someone gets to know you. Get your wine tasting party menu here.
November 22 – December 21
Just like merlot pairs well with almost any food, you pair well with almost anyone, sociable Sagittarius. But if your super likable self parties a little too hard, no worries—here’s how to get red wine (like your go-to merlot) out of anything.
December 22 – January 19
Work hard, play hard is your motto, Capricorn. That’s why your ideal evening cocktail is a glass of zinfandel—it’s sweet but surprisingly alcoholic, which is perfect for unwinding after a long work week. And if you have any leftover, use it to make this delicious sangria.
Aquarius: Cabernet Sauvignon
January 20 – February 18
Cabernet sauvignon is one of those wines that doesn’t hold back—just like you, Aquarius. Its dry, bold flavor pairs perfectly with your assertive confidence. And according to one sommelier, it’s one of the best wines to pair with meat dishes, too.
Pisces: Pinot Grigio
February 19 – March 20
As a Pisces, you’re known for being a little bit of a hopeless romantic, a little bit of a dreamer, and a whole lot of an artist. Whether you like painting or simply taking the prettiest Instagram pictures, nothing gets the creative juices flowing quite like a glass of pinot grigio.
