But don't get too excited about simply uncorking a sommelier-level taste in wine -- unless you're willing to pay up. As you may have guessed by now, Vinome's DNA test and resulting wine-pairing services come price tags that rival, well, expensive wines. The test alone is $199 and if you end up buying the wine Vinome recommends, bottles will set you back about $65 each with a minimum order of three, according to the report. But there's no guarantee the service will actually find the most magnificent merlot of your dreams, seeing as such DNA testing doesn't account for flavors you've learned to love over the years and other factors. Oh, and the word overkill might also come to mind.
Sure, getting a DNA analysis of what wines you might be programmed to enjoy would be interesting, but just think about all the different bottles you can try with that much cash at your corner wine shop. Seriously, people, how can you go wrong with a $5 red blend? You can't. Cheers to that.
