Red wine drinkers are wealthier, more educated and happier than average people – but lovers of white wine are more practical, a study revealed today.

The research found that it was possible to generalise about drinkers based on their favourite tipple, with those who like a glass of red being ambitious go-getters while people who prefer white are more relaxed and happy-go-lucky.

And rosé drinkers are the unquestioned kings and queens of social networking, visiting sites such as Facebook multiple times every day on average.

Those who drink red wine are more likely to have a degree, be married and drink more frequently than those who have a preference for white or rosé.

White wine drinkers are home-lovers who enjoy a holiday in the UK and are content with their position on the career ladder.
