Steps of Wine Presentation

When you are out to dinner and order wine, there will be a "wine presentation." Make sure you know what to do!

  • First, the bottle of wine is presented to you with the label facing you.
  • When the wine is opened the cork will be placed in front of you for your inspection.
  • A small amount of wine will be poured in your glass for a taste and final approval.
  • One approved, the rest of the table will be served, ending with you.
  • If at any point you are finished drinking wine, keep a small bit left in the glass to indicate you are finished.
