5 Tricks for Better Wine Shopping
Shopping for wine in the store isn't as easy as choosing a bottle of a restaurant's list. The vast selection can be daunting, and even if you request help from a store clerk, you may not be getting everything you can out of the experience. Here's how to make your life (and the clerk's life) easier when purchasing vino.
The folks at your local shop can't read your mind...or guess your budget. "We like to hear right off the bat what a new client's comfort price point is; it helps us guide them into the right wine for them," says Karen Williams of Acme Fine Wines in St. Helena, CA. "For example, if they say 'What are the best chardonnays in the $15-30 range?', we know exactly where to start."
