A tasteful education and a blue tongue
The very first Lodi International Wine Awards will be held at Hutchins Street Square in March. The event was created as a vehicle for a new tasting technique developed by Wine Master Tim Hanni. Mark Hamilton, pictured here, is the public relations director for the awards and a local Rotarian. The Lodi Rotary Club is a main sponsor of the LIWA, and proceeds from the event will go toward benefiting local charities and programs. (Jennifer M. Howell/News-Sentinel)

The future of wine tasting is here, and it's blue.
No, it's not a sad future. It's a new technique wherein a
subject's tongue is painted blue and a person's taste sensors are
measured. The as-of-yet-unnamed methodology will help determine a
wine drinker's favorite varietals based on the number of taste buds
he or she has.
