This article was written by in Uncategorized. 1 comment.

If you’re the type of person who enjoys wine, you’d like this article explaining how to order wine in a restaurant. There are good tips within the article which will help you save your money and your respect. Some of my favorite tips, expanded upon in the article:

* Read the wine list. Note the prices!
* If the wine’s bad send it back!
* Cheap wine doesn’t mean it’s bad and expensive wine doesn’t mean it’s good.
* If you bring your own wine into a restaurant that has a liquor license you’re gonna pay a corking charge. Deal with it.

That is a great post.
Here are a couple I liked from the list:

*When the waiter presents the bottle LOOK AT THE LABEL! Sometimes waiters make mistakes.
*Tell me verbally you’re accepting the wine. This is a business transaction. Show some manners.
