Wine ini­tia­tive a breath of fresh air

Western Suburbs Weekly - - News -

THE Wine Show of WA com­mit­tee in­tro­duced a breathal­yser at its tast­ing in Mt Barker for the first time this year.

At the Con­sumer Award judg­ing held at the Hy­att last week, Wine Show of WA’s Jo Brad­bury told guest judges that the com­mit­tee had pur­chased a breathal­yser.

She said judges were tast­ing 130-150 wines a day and were breathal­ysed through­out each day.

Some judges blew .01 or .00, while oth­ers were over the le­gal driv­ing limit.

Jo said she al­ways thought it re­lated to how small a per­son was and how much of the wines they were spit­ting out.
