Order wine like an expert
Dont worry if you are a novice at wines. Here are tips to fake it like pros
okay, so you do not know a box wine from a brunello and that big dinner with colleagues/ current object of affection is just a day away. Tribune wine critic shares his cheat-sheet on pro style ordering. Follow his script, look like you know your way around a pinot. And whatever you do dont be afraid to fake it.
1. Order a "weird" grape variety
For example the pros love dry riesling, but most people wont go near it. Of course, you need to have an idea about how that "weird" wine tastes with food beforehand. A great simple to use website for food an wine pairings is www.natdecants.com. Just type in the wine (riesling) and you get a briefing on how the wine tastes and what foods go with it.
2. Spend a little
Never order the two cheapest wines on the list. Savvy wine drinkers know that the second-lowest-priced bottle is generally the highest markup. Choose from the mid-priced sections.
3. Hold the glass of wine up to the light
Before you accept the bottle, study it, frown, say "hmmmm." Or, if you want to be less showoffy, hold the glass out at an angle over a white plate or tablecloth. Replicate the above expression.
4. Smell the wine
Seriously. Give the glass a little spin so the wine swirls up the side of the glass, then stick your nose in and breathe deeply. Actually, this (like the light test above) is a serious component to evaluating a wine. But even if you dont know what you are smelling, its the gesture that counts.
