There have been plenty of studies that have found people THINK expensive wines taste better than cheap wines. Well here's a twist: People ALSO think wines made in foreign countries taste better than wines made in Des Moines.
A new study tested wines in two different ways. Some people tasted them blind . . . and some people knew where the wines were from: South Africa, Germany, Spain, Argentina . . . or Iowa or Wisconsin.
And the blind tasters liked the wines from Iowa and Wisconsin more. The people who knew the wines they were drinking were from the Midwest liked them less . . . and liked the imported wines more.
