I'm working on a research project for a marketing class at TCU. I'm curious as to what type of wines the baby boomer generation enjoys. If you are a baby boomer, have your taste changed over the years? What are you looking for in a bottle of wine? Classic? Edgy? Quality? Origin?

Please chat up a storm and let me know what you guys are into!

Where is TCU? And what is your definition of Baby Boomer? I'm pretty sure I don't fit in that category but I just wanted an opportunity to call that out to everyone... Smile

I'm older than the Boomers so can't partake in the survey; sorry.

I'm looking for baby boomers who are born in 1954 on...
Most likely you would have grown up during the 1960's and 1970's.

My assignment is to get onto wine blogs and get to know what baby boomers like about wine etc. Please feel free to share your thoughts on wine and why or why not you like certain wines.

See!! KL, I think the standard def of baby boomers are those born between 1946 to 1964. It is a very specific period of time but to you andI, we can just call them "old" Smile JUST JOKINGGG!!!!!! Why I say this is because I've got some "younger" friends that I work with now that don't even know about Depeche Mode, Pet Shop Boys,..year I'm dating myself.... MC Hammer Dance OH Oh oh OH Oh oh....Can't touch this!!...and you are even younger than they are...and they thought I was a baby boomer....and yes they thought I was old too.......(Alex you are not that much younger than me....step up man!!!). So KL, I asked that question not to be rude but to frankly look for more specifics for the group.

Also, do some reading of this forum yourself. it is a wealth of information about people and their likes. Look up certain areas and see who posts more in certain areas nd read their stuff. Your answers are already all there!!!
