Choose Your Wine!

While choosing a wine from a wine list can be daunting…relax!

Here are a few tips for choosing the perfect bottle.
Take your time. Don’t rush. Take a few seconds to flip through the list. Look at how it’s laid out: are the Italian whites separate from the American whites? Are the wines grouped by price, or by grape variety? Is there a separate section for featured wines?
Don’t be afraid to pick what you want to. It’s all a matter of taste, and each one of has our own favorites.
And, go with the restaurant’s strengths. A French Bistro should have a wine list that features plenty of affordable French country wines, and a seafood restaurant should have more white wines than red. Your best bet is to look for the wines that are appropriate for the restaurant where you are dining.
