An Oxford biophysicist and a psychiatrist have teamed up to publish a book designed to help wine lovers refine their blind tasting skills.
Champagne Pol Roger hosted a launch party in London last night to mark the publication of Reds, Whites & Varsity Blues: 60 years of the Oxford & Cambridge Blind Wine-Tasting Competition.
The majority of British consumers favour cheap wine over an expensive equivalent, according to a study carried out by the London Wine Academy.
The 60th anniversary of perhaps the oldest blind tasting in the world saw the Oxford and Cambridge university rivalry matched by a competition pitching the UK wine trade against the wine press.
