Top tips for decoding a wine list

Take your time

Take your time

The job of a good sommelier is to make the diner feel at ease and well looked after. Being rushed, or rushing yourself, to select a wine from a list that in some cases could span up to 20 pages isn’t the idea.

Such lists are intended to be devoured and studied – a reflection of the time it has taken by a sommelier to bring it together. Ask for an aperitif, or simply for more time, but don’t pick a wine without the proper care or attention.
