Question of the week

The question: What’s the best-value wine to order in a restaurant?

The answer: Beer. (Just kidding.) It depends on the establishment, but there’s something to be said for choosing the offbeat. Restaurants can’t afford to have inventory collecting dust, unless we’re talking about trophy wines that get more expensive as they collect dust. Wines made from uncommon grapes or wine styles that simply get little attention usually have been priced to sell. This can include oddities like ribolla from Italy or piquepoul from France, and it includes appellations like Toro in Spain.
