A clever fellow has developed a test that he claims will predict what types of wines you prefer. I took the test it and the results seemed pretty accurate to me. (I tested "sensitive." O-la-la) Here is partial bio taken from his site
Tim Hanni MW, CWE is one of the first two resident Americans to successfully complete the examination and earn the title Master of Wine, holds the title of Certified Wine Educator from the Society of Wine Educators and is a professionally trained chef. Tim has been involved with a variety of wine and food related businesses, education and research for over thirty-five years.But it sounds like his test is not solely for the self-improvement of the wine drinking masses and that he has got something up his sleeve that just might make him some serious money. To wit
His newest business venture, Napa Seasoning Company LLC, is in the formulation and design phase of creating a product to solve the wine and food pairing dilemma for wine consumers. It is a food seasoning [emphasis mine] that is used as a delicious addition to almost any dish that enhances the entire dining experience.
I wonder what this mystery seasoning could be? I'll bet it contains amino acids in addition to other stuff. Well, more power to him!
