At Wine-Lips.com, we believe that all opinions on wine are all valid and based on personal tastes. There are some instances, however, where opinions are loudly proclaimed, especially after two or three glasses!
A tepanyaki chef at an ultra high end Kobe beef restaurant in Tokyo and his guest. From what we gathered, the chef is also a trained sommelier from his previous job in London and knows his stuff.
Guest: ( Holding a burgundy form 1982) Let’s open a restaurant together.
Chef: I have no money to invest…
Guest: I have money… you just cook and taste the wines. Come, have a glass of this beautiful wine with me.
Chef: ( taking a sip) its beautiful. I will save the rest of the glass for my colleague, he will never have a chance in his life to try this.
Guest: Oh? Well next time I come ill bring more bottles.I have cases of this you know.
At a wine bar in Tokyo:
“ Robert Parker? Too commercial after 2000. Don’t believe him.”
At a wine sale. Two men browsing the shelves:
“Oh look, this area has the Chateau Neufs….”
“ Hmm, Chateau Neuf de Pape? Wag yan, amoy ebak.”
At a girly lunch:
“ I like wine, I feel prettier when I drink it.”
At a wine store:
( Sales associate offering a bottle of wine to customer)
What? What does that say? How do you say that? Oh gosh, I don’t deserve to drink that. I can’t even say it!
