Covid loss of smell: End of the nose for wine lovers?

Melanie Wong | May 23, 202105:31 PM    

A year ago, I heard a New Zealand winemaker on a zoom panel discussion mention losing his sense of taste and smell due to COVID-19 during his just completed harvest season. A close friend from a winemaking family suffered anosmia in his bout with the coronavirus, and fortunately has mostly recovered. But for some, the damage is long-lasting and probably permanent. Discussing this risk with food and wine-loving friends, I count myself among those who feared this outcome more than dying during the pandemic.

For those who are suffering from anosmia, this article in Decanter discusses how some are coping.
