New wine customs emerging



, New wine customs emerging

As wine drinkers become more discerning, diverse and informed, traditional customs pertaining to wine are broken. In an article in the Wall Street Journal, the author argues that wine etiquette in restaurants is rapidly changing. Men are not automatically handed the wine list first any more, and more women are becoming sommeliers. The article elaborates:

Meanwhile, the wine list has lost a bit of its ceremony, not to mention heft. Another rule gone by the wayside is that a serious wine list should look—and feel—like a library book. Today, a wine list may be no more than a few sheets of paper or even the back of a menu. It could even be a tablet computer.

A smart wine list might be the reason to dismantle the rule that… sommeliers are the best source of advice. With wine lists that allow diners to access the Internet, sommeliers may not be diners' first source of information. Electronically emancipated diners can now look up descriptions, get the latest wine scores—and even find out how much that Cabernet really costs at retail.
