Is there a misprint here? If I were offered white or red wine I would choose the latter. - "were offered" or "was offered"?

It's correct. 'were' there is the past subjunctive. 'were' fits better with the slightly formal 'latter', if you are being picky. If I was offered white or red wine I would choose the red.
