Does music affect our wine preferences, as researchers in Scotland are saying? My guess is that this effect is being driven by differences in emotional states (i.e. different songs elicit different emotions which in turn affect sensory experience), but it’s hard to say without seeing the data. Either way, it’s fun to think about song-wine pairings. Perhaps bottles should be served with headphones and a cd player. Or, perhaps, I’ll never think about this article again.
