Buying Wine Guide – Trust Your Instincts

A friend forwarded me a link to an NPR Marketplace article on buying wine, and how points ratings do not really matter. Some scientific evidence on things I have been trying to promote for years. That it doesnt matter what the experts say – its what YOU like.

NPR’s Marketplace talking about Wine Ratings, and studies to show they dont mean anything

A couple of points from the story:

– In blind tastings, expensive wines scored lower than expensive

– Only 1 in 10 expert wine tasters rated the same wine with the same points score

One reporters guide to buying wine…Choose the one with the most expensive label, but under $15.
Eh, maybe not the best advice, I have had some fancy labels where the wine sucked.

BUT…again…what really matters is what you think!


Please leave an account of what wines you like, inexpensive or not!
