How to Wine and Dine (Part 1)

Impressing family, friends, and more-than-friends

How to Wine and Dine (Part 1) Wining and dining -- it’s a phrase we use quite often, and it generally means pretty much the same thing: we’re out to impress. So, does it make sense to always follow the same path when we’re out to wine and dine someone? No, not really, because while the ends are always similar, the means of the proper wine and dine can differ significantly.

So, a few ideas on the proper way to wine and dine your likely victims, er, I mean subjects. Time to take a look, in the first of our two-part series, at the way to wine and dine everyone from a first date to their parents, and beyond.

To view part 2 of our How to Wine and Dine series, on impressing clients, co-workers and the Big Boss, go to How to Wine and Dine (Part 2).

    this was a fun read! i've taken part in all of the examples... and to great success i might add : )

    if i could add one thing that would apply to all situations: BE HUMBLE...
    no one likes a show off... make suggestions to the group, like you have an understanding of wine, and not necessarily like you KNOW whats best...

    on a first date, go to a wine bar... sit at the bar... and let the bartender take you through the list... have him pour some tastes... this will show your date that you are confident and comfortable with yourself, and it will score MAJOR points : )

  • Good article, But: Do the Snooth wine ads next to the article change with each viewer? I'm looking at a Snooth "Ideal for Holiday dinner" ad the recommends Beringer Pinot Noir! Reallllly???? Snooth has lost a LOT of credibility. You can find 100 Pinot Noirs in Oregon for that price that would be a far better pour. Try this one at just $24 http://wyeastvineyards.com/wines.htm
