Can your wine taste indicate your personal preferences? The CivicScience DeepProfile™ product scours hundreds of attributes to uncover what makes groups of people different from the general population. The following DeepProfile™ comparing red and white wine drinkers to the general population found that red wine drinkers tend to be men with higher incomes ($150k+), and explores money management, technology usage, eating habits and more.

Demographics:

  • Men over-index the general population in drinking red wine (57% / 48%) and under-index in drinking white wine (36% / 48%). The opposite is true for women who over-index in drinking white wine (64% / 52%) and under-index in drinking red wine (43% / 52%).
  • U.S. adults with higher income are slightly more likely to drink red wine, specifically those with an income of $150k+ (17% / 13%).

 

Key Findings:

  • White wine drinkers are more likely to use social media for more than an hour each day compared to the general population (50% / 45%) whereas red wine drinkers are slightly less likely (43% / 45). White wine drinkers are also more likely to be influenced by social media in general (34% / 29%), specifically in actively using Facebook (58% / 53%).
  • Red wine drinkers are slightly less likely to be price-conscious about clothing or accessories compared to both white wine drinkers and the general population (36% / 40% / 40%), likely an income proxy.

  • Surprisingly, red wine drinkers also over-index the general population in both valuing health and fitness (48% / 42%) and following health and fitness trends (56% / 50%).
