There are many, many, many upsides to tasting wines for a living. In the old BC days (before children) I travelled the world sourcing wines for our supermarket shelves, visiting vineyards in beautiful places and spending time with people who loved - and made - wine. Nowadays I do most of my wine tasting at our kitchen table but still, it's a dream job. The only thing that's decidedly not dream-like is the damage that endless swishing and spitting has done to my teeth. Years of drenching them with acid and tannin has left them in a sensitive state. I'd always been told to not brush my teeth straight after a big wine tasting as this does more damage to the enamel. And I should have bought shares in chewing gum years ago, such is my post-tasting consumption. But the one thing that has made a very real difference is my toothpaste. Check out this quiz from Pronamel to help you work out if your teeth are at risk. Wines reccs to follow later this week.
