Being a professional geek and an aspiring wino, I found this article interesting.
One of the ideas they’ve come up with is a system called Wine Bar that would allow restaurant-goers to select from a restaurant’s wine list based on their taste preferences. So you can imagine selecting traits like acidity or fruitiness and having the tableside computer bring back appropriate wines from the restaurant’s wine list.
That is an excellent idea, and one that could make buying blind from a list of wines that you have never tasted a lot easier to pair with food. I’m all for that.
