This NPR article describes a Canadian study that found that people were willing to play more for wine with names that were harder to pronounce than a wine with a simple name regardless of quality. It was also interesting that those who knew MORE about wine were the most willing to be influenced by the name.
The article links to a video with the study’s author.
