Guest: "What is Txakolina?"
Server: "It's a Spanish white wine. It just means farm."
Sometimes sommeliers, servers, or bartenders don't know the answer, so they make something up! What have you overheard at restaurants or wine bars that made you do a double take?
How did the guest pronounce Txakolina? Also, is it pronounced "cha-ko-lee-na"?
"chah-kuh-lee-na" is how I've heard a winemaker from Basque country pronounce it.
