Wine Tasting – It’s Fun, Educational and Good for the Brain!

Posted By : Marti SOROKA/ 166

Wine holds a significant role in many cultures around the world for its ability to bring people together and share in the experience. Over the years Savor Our City has partnered with Wine For Humanity (WFH), that provides private in-home Wine Sampling Events providing hosts and their guests, an afternoon or evening of fun and education on how to better appreciate fine wine. More importantly wines that are purchased from WFH raise funds for local charities that assist families who are struggling to make rent and utility payments.  In addition to learning, enjoying, sharing the experience and doing something good for your community, in a recently published book by Gordon Shepherd, a Yale neuroscientist, Neuroenology: How the Brain Creates the Taste of Wine, he argues argues that wine tasting actually stimulates your brain more than allegedly highfalutin activities like listening to music or even tackling a complicated math problem.  Additionally he points out that tasting wine “engages more of our brain than any other human behavior.”

So if you are ready to engage your brain, taste some fabulous wines, and of course raise funds for your favorite charity, Contact Savor Our City to learn more about our Wine Tastings.
