The blind tasting

By in Tasting

When we taste wine, so much of what we think we know comes from our eyes: “it’s white so it will taste of grass and melons”, or “it’s red so it will taste of berries and leather.”

Take that sense away and it really frees you up – like Luke Skywalker using the force to hit that floating ball with his light sabre.

In this programme we got three would-be Jedi knights into the shop and gave them black wine glasses, especially made to mess with your senses.

Have a look and see how they get on at trying to guess if the wines I give them are red, white or pink.

I’ll post up a follow-up video where I’ll tell you about the wines themselves.
