The Taste of Wine Isn’t Really Enjoyed Until Age 29
In your early 20s, did you ever pretend to like wine, so you'd seem classy and sophisticated, like a real grown-up?
A new study found the average person doesn't really start to enjoy the taste of wine until they're 29-years-old. But that stat's starting to trend younger and younger.
The average person over 55 says they didn't like wine until they were 34. While the average millennial claims their love of wine started at 23. The survey also found the average person can only name four types of wine off the top of their head. The most common answers were chardonnay, merlot, and rosé.
When we do drink wine, we like to look like we know what we're doing. 56% said they usually smell their wine before taking their first sip and 48% give it a swirl.
