Do you enjoy wine and do you think wine can be culture that brings people together

I have experienced wine tasting in different countries and the difference in attitude towards both wine and wine tasting is definitely cultural.

Do you have any experience in wine tasting ? Have you ever participated to a blind tasting ?

Many years ago followed an adult education class in wine appreciation and since then also been a member of wine clubs in Dulwich and Brussels.

Have you acquired any particular knowledge about wine production ?

Travelled to several wine producing areas, Oregon, New Zealand and Languedoc, Bordeaux visiting vineyards and sampling as I went

What are the geateast factors that you are looking for for in wine (aromas, scent, velvety feeling, depth, lingering taste, etc..)

I started wine tasting so I could get better value for money from my wine purchases -to understand what I like and what really good wine tastes like. Biggest factors balance and value for money. Love all the 'fizzy' wines.
