For anyone who knows even a little, this is really a no-brainer – wine tasting makes me very happy. Where to start with all the things I love about it? First there’s the sensory pleasure, lighting up my flavour, aroma and texture receptors. Then there’s the joy of learning new things, both sensory and intellectually (I love wine stories so much I did a PhD on it). And there’s also the social aspect of tasting with other people and talking to wine producers. I would be lying if I didn’t mention the alcohol – wine tasting means it gets absorbed at a very measured pace, enough to make me happy but not drunk. Cheers!
