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.
