Uncorked: Leveraging Data to Drink Better

Presenter 1
Ashley Jester
Columbia University

Since 2010, my partner and I have been recording information about the wine that is consumed by our household, making a point to gather data about each unique bottle. Together, we have accumulated detailed information about over 400 bottles of wine, including tasting notes, varietals, origin, and importer. While this data collection was originally intended to keep us from buying “bad” wines again, it has turned out to be a rich trove of information about the varietals we like, the importers we can trust, and the years that have proven to be good vintages. This Pecha Kucha will present an overview of this data, revealing both some of the substantive findings from our dataset and also the methodologies that have been applied to create the analysis. This Pecha Kucha will be a quick and fun tour of the international landscape through the lens of wine, with a focus on finding out the best way to use data to make more informed consumption choices.
