If you've ever ordered wine in a restaurant, you've got to read this

Here are a couple of my favorites from the list on Waiter Rant:

  • DO NOT SMELL THE CORK!  For the uninitiated, the only thing you do with the cork is to check the end that was in the bottle to be sure it’s wet; if it’s wet, it’s been stored correctly.
  • DON’T SMELL THE PLASTIC CORK EITHER!  And for that matter, as Waiter Rant points out, don’t sniff the screw cap (there are a lot of nice wines that now have screw caps).
  • Merlot is a perfectly good wine. Don’t believe all that “Sideways” crap. God I hate that movie!

Read the rest; the list is both funny and educational.
