Welcome to this blog. I’m Karin. I write this blog on psychology of wine because I’m a psychiatric nurse and I’m studying the wine industry. I enjoy wine for several reasons. To me one aspect of wine means learning about a country, the climate, the geography, the soil, the people, the habits, the food and the passions of a certain area of a country or the world. In psychological terms, this gives me a connection to the world- a common ground with most humans of hobby, passion, community that wine offers to many people.
I’m currently reading a book The Psychology of Wine by Mitchell and Mitchell(2009).
They note ” new experiences will never be exhausted, every wine that surprises you releases you from the need to feel you must know everything. You become a collector of experiences. Typical human response is to scrutinize one’s own base of knowledge as the wine is tasted and is itself (the wine) being scrutinized”
May Such Surprises Never Cease!!!!
