Wine's intimidating. There are a billion producers to keep track of, all of their names are impossible to pronounce except "Charles Shaw", and it turns out his stuff isn't even that good. And on top of all that, your date is judging every single stupid thing you say when you flailingly order a bottle at dinner.
Here to help you are seven of our sommelier friends, who, it turns out, are not all huge, snobbish j-holes whose job is to trick you into buying a billion-dollar bottle of Côte de Nuits. They're actually highly friendly, engaging men and women who want nothing more than for you to enjoy your evening, and your food, and -- of course -- your wine. And to not look like a clown. You should listen to them.
