When asking a sommelier for a wine recommendation with a meal, is it appropriate to tip the sommelier? If so, is it a separate tip from the server? Thanks
What is the difference between Petite Sirah and Syrah? Thank you.
Which wines would you select/suggest for a small office dinner (12 people) at a restaurant, each having different taste? I don't have a budget, but would like to stay in the middle and the restaurants wine list is massive. The question really is how would you start, possibly a mixture of reds, whites, maybe a blend. Is there a general way of deciding what to serve to people I am just now getting to know?
i am a huge wine lover my favorite ever day wine is pino grigio and i my favorit red wine is merlot which wine has more calories ?
Ok here I go Why would someone NEED a wine cooler / \"frig\" ? I guess my question is should I buy one or not. Home D has a few nices ones in there close out section. They kee the wine from 50-70 degress and that range is selectable. I do not have any really good wines in my collection. The best I have is a bottle of Ruthaford Hill Merlot. So help me save money here. Do I buy one and put all my wines in it? or do I not buy one and just keep them in the wine rack? Thanks Mark
i have a girl friend and she says her parents know thier wine(not sure to what extent), this is our first holiday season together and i was wondering if a box set of Excelsior Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay would be an acceptable gift. they are nice people but i dont want to seem cheap, will that combination be ok? does it taste good or just good for the price? if this is a bad idea what can you recomend?
