Andrew Bell's Wine List 101
- Don't be afraid to ask for help. If your server can't help you, she or he will find the the wine director or the sommelier.
- Bold, fruity, oaky, light, smoky, crisp ... Pick at least three adjectives that describe what you like in a wine and mention this to the sommelier or server.
- When looking at the list or talking to the server or sommelier, initiate a price ceiling immediately.
- Don't be intimidated by a hard-to pronounce grape or wine on the wine list. Point to it when ordering or ask a question about it.
