I was pouring at an event put on by a local organization, largely very pleasant people who were mostly non-wine drinkers. One of the less pleasant people came up to the bar, inspected the wine we were pouring, and pompously asked, “Is that a white Chardonnay?”
I really hate to judge people who don’t know about wine, because I get it. Not everyone knows about wine. But I do, in my heart of hearts, judge people who pretend that they know a lot about wine and act pompous about it.
A Lesson to Take Away: Chardonnay is always white and please be polite to your servers.
