PALUMBO, Mariana. An analysis of emotional energy in wine tastings (Buenos Aires City, Argentina). Rev. interdiscip. estud. género Col. Méx. [online]. 2018, vol.4, e266.  Epub July 30, 2018. ISSN 2395-9185.

This article describes and analyses the increase of emotional energy -in terms of Randall Collins- in situations of interaction that happen in wine tastings, situated in Buenos Aires City (Argentina), from a qualitative approach. These events are scenes where cis heterosexual, adults, single and middle-class women and men concur for erotic and/or affectively socialize. The interactions where emotional energy increases happen after the third glass of wine, when we can notice that people are more disinhibited.

Keywords : emotional energy; wine tastings; interactions; socialize.
