A discussion of some interesting psychological studies concerning wine.

There's the 'second cheapest wine syndrome', the famous CalTech experiment, and, of course, the one the Stanford Wine Club don't want you to hear about.

Huge thanks to Dr Miles Thomas of WinePsych* for introducing me to this subject through his article, On Vines and Minds**, published in The Psychologist.

  • Thanks for comment and feedback (, Andy?). You're right, I shouldn't apologise about it and yes, I was speaking from the back of my throat... although it's because I was lying in bed with way too many pillows when I recorded it this morning :)

    I will undoubtedly re-record the audio later. Thanks again!
