How do you rate your wine? WineChannelTV and Tom Mastrianni have their methods

How do you rate your wines?  Saying you follow the legendary Robert Parker 0-100 scale is great. But, come on, I know you’re more creative than that !

Tom Mastrianni of Wine and Dine with Mastro had much to share with WineChannelTV at the Vino2010 event in NYC, including his rating system.

Mastrianni rates on a 1-7 scale. 1 being “Do  not touch” while the 7 is “orgasmic.” Now that’s what I call original!

Mine you ask?  4 star system, short and sweet- 1 being pour down the drain…4 is enjoy with that special someone…:)

Mastrianni, the host of  Wine and Dine with Mastro “Where Food and Magic Meet” shares his passion for both the culinary and wine worlds online and on television.

Tom is also an avid lover of prosecco, which seemed to be the buzz word of Vino2010. He shared some Bisol Prosecco di Valdobbiadene Crede and Prosecco Bortolomiol NV Bandarossa at lunch, both which were light & simply delicious!

The Bandarossa was so smooth with a hint of strawberry, fruity sweetness and light pear/almond notes. It went great with my smoked salmon dish.

Take a look to see Tom and I in action talking about our favorite wine rating systems… and more!

Cheers!

    Now you’ve gone and done it JustJess! I would love to see more vids of you getting “wine geeky” like you touched on here with Tom. Actually, a 12/20 minute video of you totally wine geeking out would be, on Toms scale, “orgasmic”!

    Great interview. I give it a JustJess 4!
