Ordering wine isn’t all that difficult, but there are a few helpful tips on this subject. Small things like a party of four, all with different meals can make the choice of wine a tad bit more intricate. So, here are a few tips on the phenomenon off ordering wine in a restaurant.
First, resist the urge to order a cocktail. If you’d like to enjoy a glass of something before you commit to a bottle, try a glass of sparkling wine or a light riesling or sauvignon blanc. You’ll enjoy your food more than if you indulge in a heavy, palate-numbing cocktail.
After you decide what you’re eating, take a look at the wine list. Don’t feel like hassling it? Just ask the server to suggest something by the glass.
For a bottle, if you know whether you’d like white or red, you’re halfway there. In better restaurants, often the staff will know what will complement what you’ve ordered — just ask.
If the list is overwhelming but you know you want, say, a red, simply find any red in your price range, point to it and tell the server, “I was thinking about this one — but maybe you have an idea of something that would work better.” A sensitive server should steer you to something appropriate that’s within your budget.
