Wine and Fine Dining
Posted 30 September 2005 - 10:22 AM
Do you think we will be seeing wine featured in more family and chain restaurants? What kind of wine?
Will the growing number of women vintners, sommeliers, and consumers influence wine and food offerings? If so, how?
Is there a growing public awareness and acceptance of various wine regions? Will wine lists try to incorporate them all? Will ethnic restaurants begin to feature ethnic wines?
Many restaurants feature a "wine of the month," but few offer a dish specifically created for that wine. Any possibilities that restaurants of the future will create weekly specials specifically around a particular wine or varietal?
And when are all these sissy frozen kiwi concoctions in martini glasses going to give way to some really delicious wine-themed desserts in 16 oz. wine glasses? Give me ABC--anything but chocolate!
