We leave you with the 4 rules of thumb for selecting wines – look over these before your Valentine’s dinner and you’ll be sure to impress!

  1. If you can’t pronounce the words on the wine list, ask for the “Coat Do Roan.”
  2. When your only choices are cheap ones, take a cab.
  3. For fancy noirs, think pinot.
  4. For cooking, remember the sauvignon blanc.
