Are we what we drink? This week, inspired by a bunch of seemingly random events, David is compelled to stress the importance of the relationship between who we are and what we drink. In fact, David contends that our wine preferences should really be pretty obvious; as long as you understand a little bit about wine, and a lot about yourself. On this week’s show, David helps you identify what certain aspects of your personality may mean in so far as your wine preferences are concerned. For example, multiple scientific studies have found that the type of music we prefer can be correlated to the kind of wine we like. Moreover, certain personality traits such as extroversion, neuroticism, or agreeableness can also have a significant impact on the type of wine we prefer. Tune in this week to learn more about how to match your personal taste profile with wines that are perfect for you!
Through fascinating interviews with winemakers, wine educators and other wine industry experts, Grape Encounters Radio dives deep into the science behind wine tasting and explores what it means to have a unique “palate profile” — an understanding of your own personal flavor preferences. In each episode, host David Wilson also covers topics such as wine trends, food pairings and wine etiquette. So whether you’re a wine enthusiast or just someone looking for a fun way to learn more about wine, Grape Encounters Radio is the perfect place to start!
