Quality system

The final decision on the quality of a wine is made by the consumer and, despite all the scientifically sound methods of analysis, is a mixture of not purely objective but largely subjective impressions. Whether a wine "tastes good" also depends on physiologically determined likes or dislikes (someone does not like red wine because they may have once had a bad experience due to high histamine levels ), the consumer's cultural background and personal experiences. Strictly speaking, experiences are subjective, but on the other hand they are an objective criterion ( acidic wines give someone heartburn, which means that such a wine is of poor quality).
