Went to a Keg last night for a holiday event. As we were being seated, I noticed a tabkle with three bottles of LdH cubillo - the light bulb goes off and i know what i'm ordering. Get the wine list and cant find it. Speak to the waiter who explained that table brought it themselves.
"However, Sir, as I can see you are a man of refined tastes - may I re ccomend...." and he points to the Caymus Zin on the wine list. Uhhh...nope... got anything with a bit more acidity? "well... most certainly..." and he points to the meimoi.
We got the guigal cotes du rhone. Pretty sure the waiter was dissapointed in his clearly incorrect assesment of me as a 'man of refined tastes'.
Oh, these wine fetchers drive me nuts! Too often their pompous and placating attitudes are LOL funny.
Just last week a wine fetcher hands me the wine list at a restaurant in Chicago and said, “ if you need any help with the wine list let me know.” The freaking presumptive attitude just sets me off. I replied, “ is someone going to ask me if I need help with the dining menu as well?” He looked puzzled.🙃
