Wine initiative a breath of fresh air
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.
