BLIND WINE TASTING
WHY DO BLIND WINE TASTING?
We humans are highly impressionable creatures.
We pride ourselves for our reasoning, logical, and distancing ability to be impartial in most all matters. How ever the truth is far from the reality!
The beauty of having the label covered up allows us to use our senses intensely.
By tasting wines blind - you essentially level the playing field amongst all wines, or at the least, amongst all wines from a specific region or of a specific varietal that you’ve chosen to taste test.
Impartiality is the upholding principle in wine tastings and wine ratings.
So if we know beforehand what wines we’re tasting, that impartiality will be irreparably damaged - perhaps completely lost.
