Are We Headed Toward a Wine Democracy?

WINE SCORES V. TASTE PREFERENCES

We all have unique preferences when it comes to wine. There are people who hate White Zinfandel, others dislike Merlot, and some people are “ABC” (anything but Chardonnay). While there is no right or wrong when it comes to these inclinations, it’s interesting that some wines score better than others. So what’s the average wine consumer to do when he/she cannot taste the wine in advance of purchase and is relying on scores alone? Rather than 100-point scales, with new research drinkers would only need to understand their own personal palate, which helps narrow down the overwhelming number of wine choices available in stores, online, or on restaurant wine lists.

Does Your Wine Glass Really Matter?

Is the overwhelming variety of glass shapes just marketing hype or is there science to it?

If you have been wine tasting recently, or shopping for new glassware, you may have noticed an overwhelming variety of glass shapes and styles. Some people think it’s only the wine that matters, and that the abundance of glassware is just marketing hype to increase sales. They believe that the wine will taste the same out of any vessel; whether it’s a mason jar, coffee mug, straight from the bottle, or the “appropriate” glass for that particular style of wine. However, according to Claus Riedel, the specific shape of the glass helps a wine drinker to pick up every aroma of the wine and also direct the wine to the exact part of the mouth that would allow him/her to taste that wine best.
