When I published the Vinography Aroma Card in November of 2006 I had no idea that it was going to be such a hit. I had been thinking of doing it as a little project for years after getting fed up with seeing all these aroma and flavor guides set up as round wheels in a way that made absolutely no sense to me.
I guess I wasn’t alone in that frustration. Apparently no one else in the world has a round wallet either. The original card has been downloaded thousands of times since it was posted almost a year ago.
Today I’m happy to announce that it has been translated into its fifth language, Portuguese, thanks to the kind folks over at InfoWine.Com, a multi-lingual professional journal of Viticulture and Enology that is the publication of a larger organization known as Vinidea, a professional services firm serving the wine industry.
As with a couple of other languages there were a few terms that had to be dropped from the list (such as “burnt marshmallow”) and a few others whose translation is only approximate. Please provide feedback if you think anything is missing or wrong.
This Portuguese version joins the English, French, Spanish, and Italian versions that are already on offer.
If you find this card valuable, I’d like to ask for a voluntary donation. Most other such tools (OK, so theirs are laminated, big deal) are about five bucks plus shipping. Give me a dollar or three or five, but if you like it and use it, I’d love a token of your appreciation. You can do so by clicking on the donate button below.
Regardless, I hope you enjoy these cards and find them useful in your wine tasting.
