The New Wine Fundamentals

Understanding the factors that influence consumer wine preferences

The New Wine Fundamentals program presented by Master of Wine Tim Hanni. This new approach stresses deepening our understanding of the factors that influence consumer wine preferences, attitudes and behaviors.

His new book, "Why You Like the Wines You Like, changing the way the world thinks about wine" is a revolutionary, myth-busting approach to wine and food enjoyment based on the latest palatal and consumer research, published by author Tim Hanni, Master of Wine. This book introduces the physiological and psychological factors that shape personal wine preferences. It offers empowerment to wine drinkers at all levels. Hanni’s wine and food principles were adopted last year and taught as part of the Advanced Diploma curriculum for the Wine & Spirits Educational Trust. "Wine and food pairing is has become an imaginary and metaphorical exercise with little basis in reality," Hanni says. "I am on a mission to have everyone pair wines with the diner, not the dinner."

The webinar will cover:

  • Vinotypes
  • The concepts of collective delusions and critical thinking
  • Discussion of wine myths, lore and misconceptions
  • Rationale and evidence for changing the paradigm of wine and food matching
