2009 Texas Sommelier Conference in Dallas

This morning we talked a lot about wine lists and managing beverage programs. One of the panelists, Joe Spellman, had some interesting things to say about wine by the glass and the current “fetish with half bottles” on wine lists. I attempted to shoot an award-winning video. Instead, I got a poor sound quality video clip of a really nice, smart wine guy making some good points. So, put on your headphones. You know where to put the cork.

    I totally disagree with the speaker. Half bottles and large “by the glass” selections are a boon for single people dining alone, couples that do not want an entire bottle of wine for one reason or another or, people and groups that want to experience more than just one wine during dinner.
