    This is a joke of a test. Any novice can distinguish between $12 v. $60 bottle or a $9 v. $90 bottle. They're entirely different strata of wines. The test between the bottled wine versus the canned was even more ridiculous.

  • Артём Лузик

    She looks amazing person, but really - what a pointless skill. So you can see a difference between different wines by color and may be taste.. So?... Yeah, and can tell price of wine if you now this wine. So?) No, really, what the point of this skill? People just drink wine that taste good for them - it's subjective, doesn't depend on price. I don't need "expert" to pick my favorite wine. Nodoby needs

    First time i see wine in cans, my doubt is when i was working in room service in a hotel in Argentina, there was a wine like rose but it was very sweet and very expensive but it was almost the same one i try years ago in my home town in Perú where we call it perfecto amor and usually made in the rural farms for locals and not expensive, is it posible to find artesanal wines cheap and real good??

    I think you needed to have such extreme differences in the price of the cheapest versus the most expensive wines because no expert could ever tell the difference between a $15 wine and a $30 wine.

    Great to see that at least one self-proclaimed wine expert can actually discern wine quality, because they did studies on it a few years ago, and not only could "wine experts" not tell apart expensive and cheap wines, they couldn't even tell apart a red from white!
