I have become the Wine Nazi!

#1 Post by Larry Kaplan » November 8th, 2019, 9:34 am

So Yesterday I poured what was probably my 5,000th tasting. This was a Charity tasting to help a local group aiding the elderly and poor. We handed out booklet listing each and every wine being poured, and the tables. Each table had the actual bottles set up on the table and in the order they were being poured. There were signs on the tables Identifying table and the person pouring. Yet, 90% of these f*ck people approached and asked what do you have. NO, just NO, f*ck you! If you are to lazy or stupid to have to ask this question then no wine for you! Come back when you get a clue. NEXT!! Also when you walk up and say just give me a red or something sweet fine I will pour it for you but if you had no interest in what you are drinking do not expect me to engage or then answer the question hey what is this. NO OK I feel mildly better end of rant!

Like people who walk into my shop, and ask what is good.

Probably the most common question I get when pouring at consumer tastings is "anything good today?". I've taken to saying, "no, all crap today." I say it with a smile, and they always chuckle, probably not realizing that I have drawn attention to how silly their question was.
