VinoTastr Develops a Science-Backed Kit to Help Wine Lovers Choose

If you’re a wine-lover and are on the constant search for the next wine that will satisfy your palette, you’re going to want to read this. There’s a new science-backed at-home taste kit, VinoTastr, that measures taste sensitivities to known wine traits using four distinct taste test strips and then recommends red and white wine varietals that align with those sensitivities.

Co-founder Dr. Henry P. Barham’s decade of research and expertise in taste science led to the creation of VinoTastr and the at-home wine Discovery Kit. As Dr. Barham explained, your like or dislike of cilantro is not a matter of preference but of your taste receptors’ innate response to bitterness. Today, hacking your taste preferences is a way to eat healthier but it all starts with knowing your baseline preference. Discovering your palate baseline is also the key to wine selection

“Wine tasting notes can only tell you what a wine tastes like according to the writer of the note; they can’t tell you if the wine will suit your individual palate. VinoTastr takes the guesswork out of what to drink and gives consumers the confidence to explore wines best suited to their palate profile,” said Dr. Barham.
