If you answered mostly 1s: You’d love a sweet white wine like Hermon Moscato, with a fresh flavor with a hint of lemon, limes and flowers. Like this lightly sparkling, pleasantly sweet wine, you’re the perfect party guest.

Mostly 2s: You’re more of a sweet red wine drinker. Try Yarden T2  for a classic.

This Port-style wine is aged for 26 months in oak barrels giving in a deep flavor of ripe cherries, piece and a hint of chocolate. Think of it as the ‘James Bond’ of sweet red wines, eternally stylish and made to impress.

Mostly 3s: You like dark red, strong wines. Try Gamla Cabernet Sauvignon. Everyone’s favorite red wine, this is full bodied with ripe cherry and plum notes. So, when your horoscope predicts something ‘tall, dark and handsome’ it’s probably your next bottle of Gamla Cabernet Sauvignon.

Mostly 4s: Dry whites are your taste. Try Gamla Chardonnay. This medium- bodied white will pair with meat as well as fish, making it eminently adaptable. The Gamla Chardonnay has citrus, melon and honeysuckle notes giving it a fresh taste. This is the ‘little black dress’ of wines; it will fit every occasion and bring a touch of class to all of them.
