Poll: in a blind taste test, could you tell the difference between a $10 and a $50 bottle of wine?
  • 40% - nope 96
  • 38.3% - maybe...? 92
  • 11.7% - definitely 28
  • 10% - please don't make me drink wine 24

Well, how do you fare compared to the Zeitgeist? Chat up your fellow wooters and let us know how lame this poll was or what obvious choices we missed. For example: Was this poll a) STUPID, b) DUMB, c) POINTLESS or d) ALL OF THE ABOVE?

Beer yes / Wine No

Probably. I've had some crappy $20 bottles and some excellent $6 bottles so there is some doubt. But 10-50 is quite a difference so unless we're talking an AWFUL $50 bottle the difference should be clear.

The only real way to tell is to set up a double blind test with multiple pairings including both $10/50 pairs, $10/10 pairs and $50/50 pairs.

I volunteer as tribute for the sampling.
