If you look at the great wines of California and the women that have a hand in them , you can easily see a strong correlation between female winemakers and fantastic wine. I would like to propose my theory as to why women are naturally better at making wine.
I recently received a comment on one of my blog posts here by Paul Frank, owner of Gemstone Vineyard. Paul asked, “Kevin, if you could educate restaurant guests to avoid the one or two things that annoy sommeliers most, what might it be? Also, on the other hand, what are the things that sommeliers appreciate most from considerate and knowledgeable guests? How's that for putting you on the spot!?” Since these are such great questions, and the answers are related, I feel that they deserve their own post.
Have you ever gone to a restaurant and been approached by a sommelier wearing a chain around his neck with some keys and a device that looks like a silver ashtray dangling from it? I have, and I don’t like it.
