Science at home: Wine tasters wanted for new study
Scientists are looking for regular wine consumers to participate in a 'Wine Perception Study' in their own home.
The research by the University of Adelaide School of Agriculture, Food and Wine and University of Nottingham Sensory Team aims to gain a greater understanding of the perception of certain attributes in wine, including mouthfeel and flavour.
Participants will undertake three sensory sessions of 35 minutes each. Each session will involve answering questions on like and perception based on the sensory attributes of a selection of wines.
After completing all three sessions, participants will receive a $10 voucher and be able to keep the wine glasses provided with the distribution pack.
Only one participant per household is permitted. No specific wine knowledge or education is required to take part in this study.
To participate in the study, you will need to meet the following criteria:
- be aged 18 years or older;
- be in general good health;
- be fluent in English language;
- be a frequent wine drinker (consume wine at least once a month); and
- are willing and able to follow directions and complete the study questionnaire
You must not participate in the study if you:
- are pregnant/lactating or planning to become pregnant;
- have any known reason that might stop you from participating in a sensory study and/or tasting wine (including medical, lifestyle, any known allergies, religious, etc.); or
- have known conditions that might impair your sensory ability
Dates and times
We will aim to complete participant recruitment by the end of July and deliver wines on the first week of August. Participants will then have one week to complete the sessions.
This is a Home Use Test (HUT); therefore, you will be able to access the sessions online. Wines will be packaged and sent to you directly via post.
