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.
