You’ll save a lot of money ordering wines you never heard of at a restaurant. People are more likely to order wines they are familiar with and restaurants know that and will take advantage of that.
How? By overpricing them!
Some of the most commonly known wines: Pinot Noir, Merlot, Chardonnay, and Cabernet Sauvignon but those wines are way overpriced!
To avoid overpaying, order a wine that you’re unfamiliar with at a nice restaurant. Try the Crémant d’Alsace, Tintilla, or Côte-Rôtie Or any other wines you may not be able to pronounce.
