​WATCH: Tom Gilbey Blind Taste Tests A New Wine At Every Mile Of The 2024 London Marathon​

🍷 Tom Gilbey, a London wine connoisseur, swapped electrolyte and carb drinks for glasses of Pinot, shiraz, and Chardonnay (among many other varieties) during the 2024 London Marathon.

πŸ’­ Armed with two wine glasses in his running belt, Gilbey, 52, was challenged to blind taste test a different wine at every mile of the race.

​
πŸƒπŸΌβ€β™€οΈ However, in recent years several studies have confirmed the existence of the high and identified the conditions that stimulate those feel-good brain chemicals.
