Wine How To: Avoid Red Wine Teeth

June 20, 2009

Gwendolyn Alley is Murphy-Goode http://www.areallygoodejob.com/video-view.aspx?vid=MEPRrfj1uHUSo you might have gathered that I’m applying for another “dream job”–this time, instead of Caretaker of the Great Barrier Reef, I’m up for Murphy-Goode’s Wine Country Lifestyle Correspondent.

And just as many people told me I was perfect for the island reef job, so people are saying about the Murphy-Goode job: “Go for it! You’re perfect! You love wine, you’re a great storyteller, I love your blog!” (OK, they know me, they love me, they’re biased…what can I say?)

So, my 60 second video application awaits approval and processing (and it came out soooooo great! Whoo hoo!!). In the meantime, I’m headed for a carnival, a blog carnival that is, over at Andy’s Goode Life Blog where she asks us to respond to these three questions:

  1. When I drink red wine, I often get the dreaded “red wine teeth,” which is an embarrassing condition to have at a party when I intend on talking, smiling, or otherwise showing my newly wine-stained chompers. And is there any way to reduce this affliction without hampering my enjoyment of red?
  2. What are your tips to avoid “palate fatigue” when tasting so many wines in a session?
  3. Why smell the cork?

1. How to avoid the dreaded red wine teeth?

Ahh, the scurge of red wine drinkers, especially for those of us with a passion for reds like syrah or Petit Sirah.

At Doug Cook’s birthday party at the first Wine Blogger’s Conference in 2008, toward the end of a long day of tasting and drinking wine, we were all laughing at ourselves and each other, joyously celebrating our red teeth! It was a mark of a day and an evening well spent amongst new and old friends sharing some of our favorite wines.

Now, if you’re doing a photo shoot, that’s another story. It’s best not to drink much anyway if at all.

Brush well before and bring a toothbrush for when you’re done!

Eating while drinking will also reduce away some of the red wine stain.

Finally, if it’s a first date or a business dinner, and you’re worried about first impressions, choose to drink something white or a lighter red like a pinot noir or a beaujolais.

Go here to read tips on how to attend a wine tasting like a pro and avoid palate fatigue.
