If You Could Wave A Magic Wand, Grape Radio Show, number 171

This was my magic wand wish submission to Grape Radio.

My wishes :

1. It would be possible to sample any wine before buying a whole bottle. This is already possible in some places e.g but it should be universal.

2. Fine wine would be cheaper

3. Wine reviewers e.g. Parker, Decanter, Wine Spectator, etc publish reviews in full with scores for every wine they review - even the ones that get -1 out of a 100. They seem to be scared to do so - maybe because they fear they will not be allowed to get the wine for free to review the next year. For me. it is more important to not buy a crap wine than to buy a really good one. I would rather have something drinkable than not.

Wine Spectator does publish full reviews (including score and tasting note) for every wine we taste; all are searchable on our Web site (
