Here are some more interesting wine facts that I came across while researching for my novel Uncorked:

Since wine tasting is essentially smelling, women tend to be better wine testers because women, particularly of reproductive ages, have a better sense of smell than men.

In ancient Greece, a dinner host would take the first sip of wine to assure guests the wine was not poisoned, hence the phrase “drinking to one’s health.”

“Toasting started in ancient Rome when the Romans continued the Greek tradition but started dropping a piece of toasted bread into each wine glass to temper undesirable tastes of excessive acidity.
