Want to Improve Your Baden Wine Tasting Skills? Memorize Aromas!

An expert in German Rieslings could have better “degustation” skills than a sommelier specialized in other wines and regions according to a study published in the Journal of Experimental Psychology – and we can all learn a few tips! While the reason sommeliers focusing on some wines fare better than those with expertise in other regions isn’t clear, apparently, being able to successfully identify smells and flavors in wine is down to memorizing aromas rather than descriptive words like “stone fruit” or “smoky”. Sounds like it’s worth a try. Pass me the Spätburgunder!
