After a great suggestion by a new member to the forum (thanks @Tamlyn), I want to ask you a question that I’ve asked quite a few wine friends in the past.
What wine do you KNOW you won’t like and you simply won’t drink it?
Now, … what would it take to get you to try it?
This question comes up fairly regularly if you think about it. People think they know certain wines and so they simply avoid them.
“I don’t drink … (sherry, cava, German wine, oaked wines, sweet wines, … the list goes on) because they are (cheap, sweet, give me headaches, etc.)”
I’ve wanted to run a tasting called: It’s Not What You Think where we taste all of these wines and see what we can do to dispel the prejudices … but in reality we all have them.
My own, I have to admit, is Rosé wines. I can’t quite bring myself to explore them instead of white or red alternatives.
Do you have a blind spot? Will you admit what it is? What would it take to get you to explore those wines for a change?
