Wine Tasting Tips #7--This Wine is Music to my Palate
April 26, 2018
Issue #7 - April 2018
Recent articles in the popular and scientific press have inspired the content of this issue. Let’s explore the influence of sounds and music on our wine tasting experience.
Impact of Music Choice on Wine TastingMany things can trick a wine tasting, like wine colors or glass shapes. What about the music choice at a wine event?
This is what a research team from Oxford University in the UK decided to investigate in two studies recently published in scientific journals.
Findings showed that music tunes can indeed alter our liking and also wine taste attributes.
Related articles in the mediaWhile sound can change the way we taste wine, it can change the way we learn about wine. Two articles report on the importance of podcasts for Millenials to get wine insights.
Mike Dunne reviewed a dozen of podcasts and highlighted 8 of them in this article.
Sound is the new way to sell wine to millennials
A new podcast appeared since Mike’s paper, called the Wine Down.
