20 WINES TO AVOID-THE TOP 20 MOST ORDERED WINES IN RESTAURANTS

Posted in Info on Wine, Wine Lists with tags , , , on July 17, 2009 by ballymote

I find this list absolutely amazing. It’s from RESTAURANT WINE MAGAZINE and it’s a list of the TOP 20 wines ordered in restaurants in 2007. Honestly, there isn’t a single wine on this list that I can recommend or that I would order under ANY circumstance. I love wine passionately but if this were all the wine choices I had, I would be a devoted beer drinker.

This list speaks volumes about the wine, oops I meant to say plonk-drinking habits of the American public. They get into a rut and have no idea how to get out and consequently they miss the opportunity to experience the true joys of the grape. I publish this list to help you avoid the minefield of bad juice that floods America. This list was originally published in a BLOG titled “Spirit of Wine”.
