What are you most likely to order off a wine list?
How do you decide what to order?
I just read this dude's blog about ridiculously long wine lists. I agree, TMI (even when it's food related) can be overwhelming. Not all of us are going to plunk down a housing payment to try a once in a lifetime bottle of wine. Although if you know a single man who is willing to do this, send him my way!
I know how I order wine.
Varietal followed by Price followed by Appellation.
So if I'm doing some serious oyster damage I know I want a $25-$30 bottle of either something French from the Loire or I want a domestic Pinot Gris or even maybe a New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc.
But how do you figure out what to order?
