It’s always best to do with a good glass of wine. And when doing this, it’s a great idea to have music playing in the background. So with this, it’s wonder why this study hasn’t been done before.
Scientists said their research had established for the first time that music influenced taste, and claimed the results could have important implications for restaurateurs.
According to his list of the ideal tracks to accompany wine, a Chardonnay slips down nicely accompanied by Atomic from Blondie, and Merlot is good with Otis Redding singing Sitting on the Dock of the Bay. Jimie Hendrix’s version of All Along the Watchtower is recommended with a 2006 Chilean Cabernet Sauvingnon.
I’m not much of a fan of Blondie, or Hendrix (No ribbing for this), but a glass of Merlot with Ottis sounds pretty good to me.
Now that this study has been put together, here’s a few of my own recommendations for “When Music and Wine Unite”.
Cabinet Sauvignon: Dream Theater, Richard Wagner, Iron Maiden, Yes, and The Who
Merlot: Van Halen, Genesis, The Ramones, Bruce Springsteen, and Grieg.
Chardonnay: Jimmy Buffet, Chris Isaak, The Beach Boys, Emmylou Harris, and Chopin
Chanti: Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Mario Lanza, Luciano Pavarotti, and the soundtrack to “The Godfather”.
That’s my take. If any of you have any others you want to add, or ask any questions about this, don’t hesitate to post in the comment section.
