Does the moon affect wine?

A rather strange article about the position of the moon when you taste wine - this will require a lot of testing  ;D

Haven't noticed any change in the taste of ale - wonder if wine drinkers have more refined taste buds  ;)

Not having had ANY alcoholic beverages in the last 5 years or so, I am not prepared to say, BUT the last I had was a DELICIOUS Pinot Noir.  I don't know WHERE the Moon was at the time, but who cares.  The wine was GREAT!!

Sounds like vinstrology to me.  Next thing you know people will be saying the position of the moon when you are born affects your health, wealth, love, etc..  Doesn't sound like science to me.

Although, a little wine, moonlit night, warm breezes...well... ::)
