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?

  • No, but the incorrect pronunciation had to come from somewhere as when people don´t know things in wine, they usually ask which gets back to Emily's original point. And again, why and how have so many sommeliers have invented som-al-yay?
