True or False: how - or if! - you wear underwear may be an insight into your personal wine drinking preferences.

A. True

According to Master of Wine Tim Hanni's book Why You Like The Wines You Like, people with heightened sensory sensitivities often wear their underwear inside out to avoid irritation from the seams (or forgo wearing any underwear at all). These same people tend to fall into certain wine preference categories based on his research, and prefer the taste of sweeter wines.
