Overheard at a wine bar...

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?

  • A few days ago a guest asked for a Fernet Branca. The Somm said "I know we have Fernet but I'm not sure if we have the Blanca, I'll check with the bar". The guest looked at the Somm like he was an idiot. Because he was. That Somm was me! lol
