This particular topic comes around reasonably regularly in wine circles, but I have yet to get a definitive answer as to whether music really does affect one’s perception, and enjoyment, of wine.
Does anyone here have a strong feeling about this either way? Has a piece of music, played at the right moment, amplified your wine drinking experience in some way, or maybe impaired it? Is the involvement of another sense a distraction or a does it help you to focus, and is this (like wine tasting) really just a personal thing? Maybe it is more about the setting, or the audio system itself … So many questions.
I believe we have a few members who are into their aural as well as oral experiences (titter ye not!), including @MetalheadWino, @Richard and @martin_brown - so maybe I can be convinced to try again or maybe just avoid it altogether.
