Oddbins matches music and wine

11 May, 2012

Oddbins has launched what it says is “the world’s first synchronised wine and music-matching event”.

The event is to take place tomorrow (May 12) at 3pm in all the chain’s 35 branches.

Each shop will play the same song and get its customers to taste two wines – and then ask them which of the wines went better with the music they heard.

Those who take part have the chance to win music festival tickets for this summer.

“But why are we doing this?” the company asked in a mail-out to its customers. “Well, scientific studies have shown that music can enhance the way your wine tastes. You can read all about it in A Sound Manifesto and even explore our Wine & Music Matcher on our website.”

COMMENT

Agreeing to disagree

Disagreeing about wine is a fact of wine-trade life, like drugs in sport or corruption in politics. Because taste is entirely subjective, debates about our personal preferences are as inevitable as they are interminable. Indeed, these long-winded, wine-fuelled arguments are precisely what make our jobs so much fun.
