The art of ordering wine

Monday, November 06, 2006

Sleeping through the Pyrmont Markets and eating leftovers and/or take-away for about 10 days straight has left me no bloggable food experiences over the past week. But looking through some of my feed favourites, I was reminded of this post over at Waiter Rant, appropriately titled, How to order wine without looking like an asshole. Make sure you get to #26. :-)

Thanks for the link, it was great. Although I'm a little worried about annoying the hell out of a waiter now; I wouldn't like to find out their ways of exacting vengeance.

That was an interesting article :) I've always been fascinated with wines. One would think that a grape is simply just a grape. And then they turn it into wine and something magical happens. I still have a lot to learn but so far, all of the wines I've tasted from Australia have never disappointed me. I hate anything from Chile, everything I've tried from there is terrible!

I try never to piss a waiter off. And absolutely never before I finish my meal, for obvious reasons.

Yeah, we're lucky that decent wine can be had cheaply over here. I'm not a huge wine drinker but I've had some lovely surprises, mostly through dinner parties and free taste tests at the liquor store. *g*

That's why I need to move over to Australia soon... I'll probably be drinking wine like it's water! Heh :)
