I’ve set up two sets of questions.
One for the General Public and the
other for Wine Professionals.
Let’s see what they have to say….
1- Name? Paula.

3- What is your favourite grape? Any.
4- What is your favourite wine? Gallo.
5- Are you a fan of Champagne or Sparkling wines? No, I prefer dry.
6- Do you have a country of preference? Nope, Australia or California if I’m pushed but I dont mind really.
7- How do you enjoy wine? With food, on it’s own, social etc. Social.
8- What influences your wine choices? Price, occasion, season etc. Taste, I dont like anything woody, has to be fruity.
