The Staff Know-It-All
"I'll share one recent experience we encountered on one of our local paddleboats about a month ago.
Our group had an afternoon cruise with a BBQ lunch. As my wife and I had been driven to the boarding site by our friends this day, I wanted to buy a bottle of red to share with them over lunch.
The young lady assisting asked me to come and select the wine as she said that
she knew nothing about wine. She led me to a wine cooler that said 5.2
degrees on the front. After feeling how cold the bottles were, I asked if
there were any reds not in the coolers. She went to look. Five minutes later the
lady in charge of the catering services came to our table and asked who
was wanting the red wine. When I said it was me, she respectfully, but very
sternly, told me that all the red wines were in the wine coolers and stored
at the exact temperature that all red wine should be stored at, and there
was no need for me to ask for a wine that was not stored in a cooler!!!!!!!!!
(Our top Temp that day was 17 degrees)

From: Matthew Moate08/27/2007 21:19:10 Interesting experience at E&T. I recently visited Jenke in the Barossa late in the afternoon last week. A very cozy cellar door and I felt so bad that brand new wines were opened just for me. I bought a case for two reasons, firstly great wines at great value and secondly a bit of guilt...
