I Guess I’m a Wine Snob?

May 19, 2011

I’ve turned into a wine snob apparently. I just returned from a vacation in Las Vegas and one thing I always do is treat myself to a dinner at a fancy steakhouse.

I was seated at the restaurant and the server asked if I needed the wine list. I replied no but told him that I knew what I wanted. I asked for an Italian Dolcetto and the server could not believe I was actually ordering something other than Merlot or a Cabernet.

The server was on cloud 9 with his new found kindred soul. He was telling other customers what I ordered and they would just stare at me. I decided to have a little fun and ordered a glass of Gruner Veltliner, a nice white- while I waited for my steak. This brought a never ending smile from my new friend.

I can’t take all of the credit for my server’s adulation. Without the Selection Limited Edition program I would never have had a chance to try the Dolcetto (released 2008) or Gruner Veltliner (released 2010).
