Eco-Certified Wines Taste Better
It's time for some good news…
It turns out that eco-friendly wines aren’t just better for the planet - they taste better, too!
As Science Daily reports - a new study out of UCLA and published in the Journal of Wine Economics looked at tens of thousands of California wines and found that:
On a standardized 100-point scale, eco-certified wines scored an average of 4.1 points higher. The standardized scale controlled for differences between the scoring systems -- for example, easy graders versus hard graders.
Why the taste advantage for eco-friendly wines?
Scientists aren't exactly sure - but they did notice a slight taste advantage of eco-friendly red wines over their white counterparts.
So pour yourself a glass of eco-safe wine and drink up - you're helping save the planet - and learning a thing or too about nice vino while you're at it!
