Are you a one-glass wonder who sticks with her favorite bottle or a savvy sipper who buys wine like a pro?

When faced with the wall of wine at a store, you:
1 of 6 questions

Option A

Look forward to trying something new. Can’t pronounce the name? No problem; you buy it and try it.

Option B

Stick to the familiar wines in your comfort zone. Who wants to waste the money on a bad bottle, right?

Search for the deals. It’s just fermented grape juice, after all.

In a restaurant, you select wines by:
2 of 6 questions

Option A

Asking the wine steward or sommelier to recommend a unique bottle to discover. You might uncork a white Albariño from Spain, a hearty red Argentine malbec, or a sparkling red shiraz from Australia.

Option B

Ordering a bottle you’ve had before — a chardonnay or cabernet sauvignon from California and you’re good to go.

Option C

Considering the meal you’ve chosen. You think about the sauce on the dish (creamy mustard sauce goes great with a lush viognier, while spicy, tangy tomato sauce begs for an Italian red).

Option D

Going straight for the bubbly! Whether it’s cava from Spain, champagne from France or prosecco from Italy, sparkling wine goes with everything.

You have to buy a gift for your boss, who claims to be a wine expert. Instead of panicking, you:

Purchase a bottle of her favorite wine from your local wine store. You’ll win brownie points for being so thoughtful.

Option A

Plan a vacation to wine country (Oregon’s Willamette Valley, California’s Santa Barbara County, or New York’s Finger Lakes region) and ship bottles home.

Option B

Visit the best local wine store and ask for one case of white and one case of red. You know most wine stores will give you a discount of up to 10 percent if you buy a full case.

Option C

Select a mixture of wines to pair with all types of cuisine — sparkling wine and riesling for your spicy dishes, full-bodied chardonnay for roast chicken, pinot noir for grilled mushrooms and syrah for rack of lamb.

Option D

Host a wine-tasting party and make everyone bring you two bottles — one to drink and one to stash away.

It's Girls' Night In, and you're stocking up on bottles for the party. What do you select?

Option A

Grüner veltliner from Austria, grenache from Australia, and Carmenère from Chile. It’s a quick trip around the world in one night.

Option B

You stock up on crowd-pleasing sauvingon blanc and merlot.

Option C

You plan a “Table Taste Party.” Set out three tables — one with spicy foods, one with savory dishes and another with sweet endings. Put wines on each of the tables and let the pairing begin.

Option D

Who cares what you’re pouring, as long as there’s lots of it?!

You just bought a new car and didn't tell your spouse or S.O. about it beforehand. To break the news gently, you plan a romantic evening complete with great vino. What do you pick?

A sexy sipper such as sweet Sauternes or tawny port. These can be enjoyed in pajamas ... or out of them.

Option C

Champagne paired with caviar. You dine at the darkest, most intimate restaurant in town and ply your significant other with both treats before you unveil the car.

Option D

You find the cheapest bottle possible, since you’re now broke!
