      Wine quiz - round 1
    • Wine tasting 101, challenge your knowledge
      Wine tasting is never absolutely objective because of the intrinsic subjectivity of the human senses, and because
      any fraud or chemical manipulation done by the wine maker cannot be detected by tasting
      the individual differences in perception are the only major problem, and this can be solved by panel tasting
      each wine should be assessed relative to the typical style for that specific region and varietal
      the economical aspects of wine making are not taken into account
    • Wine tasting 101, challenge your knowledge
