In an interview with Wall Street Journal, Nathan Myhrvold, former chief tech officer for Microsoft, revealed that his party trick is adding a pinch of salt to inexpensive vino.

He explained that while he was at a dinner party, he was sitting beside a Winery owner who said she'd wish she made a Cabernet that was less fruity and more savoury.
