1 – Excuse me, can you change this bottle please. It smells of cork. Note: This only works if you leave a lavish tip to the waiter and don’t forget to actually smell the wine first before using this expression.
2 – This is quite a decent wine, but I think I still would have preferred a 2013. It is nonetheless an excellent wine.
3 – I love finding red wine combinations with fish dishes! Note: If asked what type of red wine you would dare accompany a fish dish with, be clear that only a low-alcohol red wine which is not heavy in tannins would work.
4 – You all absolutely must try this Reserve wine. There are no words to describe it.
5 – Champagne?! It’s completely overrated. I am more of an Italian Brut Spumante type of person.
6 – I don’t think I have ever heard of this vineyard, but I must say that it isn’t easy to find a really decent Chardonnay nowadays.
7 - Do you feel that pleasurable sensation of freshness on the palate that this white wine creates? See how much it makes one salivate? It is undoubtedly a wine of great acidity!
8 – I adore wild forest fruits and cherry aromas! They are so reminiscent of a Sangiovese. Note: Make sure the wine is indeed a Sangiovese based wine, and that you smell the aromas in your glass for quite a long time and deeply.
9 – Wait, I will taste the wine! Thank you. Note: Swirl your glass with style, smell the aromas deeply and take a small sip.
10 – Any wine between $1 and $99 you can have!
Now start with the wines.
