WHITE WINE TASTES BETTER WITH BLONDIE

WHITE WINE TASTES BETTER WITH BLONDIE

SENSORY DINING

Eating and drinking is arguably the most multi-sensory pursuit we engage in; it truly is a combination of all the senses. Every sense is engaged, and every element that surrounds you has an impact on your perception and experience of taste.

There is a whole section in the book about sensory dinner and drinks; with step-by-step instructions for an evening’s immersive entertainment. A sensorial dinner party, where sounds, colours and shapes twist your taste buds like you didn’t think possible.

WINE LIST PLAYLISTS

One of the revelations that I came to early in my career, is that sound and music can change flavour. From evocative soundscapes conjuring sensory memories and emotions, to specific frequencies of sound that dial up certain tastes.

One of the best applications of this knowledge, is that you can create a perfect playlist of music to compliment and enhance a glass of wine. Research has shown that matching the emotional content of a song to a relative wine – like a zingy fresh white with Blondie – can enhance the flavour by around 25%.

Beyond the ‘vibe’ of a track, you can get really into music and wine pairing when you think about the types of sounds and instrumentation used, the rhythm and pitch, the production. 

Every nuanced factor of the background sound will accentuate certain tastes and flavours. And so, by understanding the science; plus a bit of instinctual judgement thrown in, you can create the perfect playlist to get the best out of your bottle and impress friends with your outstanding choice of wine.

Here are my suggested playlists for light and full bodied red and white wines. The musical choices lean toward my taste of course, but I’ve tried to keep it broad enough. Use them as inspiration and a jumping off point to create your own. All the detail you need is in the book. You can link through to Spotify to listen to all the playlists here
