    That might be the worst categorization of wines and wine drinkers I’ve ever seen.

    Sweet: sweet, light, and not too strong
    Hypersensitive: simple and clean
    Sensitive: [null]
    Tolerant: big bold flavours

    It is neither a good collection of wine categories nor wine drinker categories… even if the goal is to “liberate” people from food pairings, you could do nothing with the above.

    So I went to the original site for the whole “Vinotype” thing… and bah, pure rubbish:

    “In general you might lean towards Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and possibly Merlot but you could just as easily hate these varieties as well

    Its like he *knows* me.

    This is just the usual bad Marketing nonsense that is best summarized: Drink Moar Wynz. (a message I heartily endorse).Report

    Thomas Jefferson wanted America to grow wines that would rival those of Europe. It took the inclusion of California and more than a century of development with a hiccup to get there but we did it. 19th century American vinters tended to specialize in low quality wine favored by habitual drunks and hobos. It was called foot juice.Report
