Re: “Pettingill Fruit Farms

Thanks for sharing this article about the famous Fruit Way. However, I can't think of any other strip of Hwy 89 that can beat it for it's beauty with a view of the Willard Bay and the Willard Mountain Peaks.

Re: “Sage Advice

You're a pretentious jack wagon. And it's people like you that are strangling the life out of Park City's charm. Let's just have cookie cutter typical recipe over priced snobby restaurants.

I say, good day, to you sir.

Re: “10 Under 20

Ted, thanks for the tips, always looking for good inexpensive wines.
Last time I was in the wine store on Harris Ave (300 West) I noticed a rack labeled "limited time only" wines. Not sure what that is about but there were some interesting selections that were also under $20. Items I had not seen before. Check it out next visit!

Re: “Ring in the New!

It seems that these wines promise a good sparkling taste. A good choice in fact base on how you describe it. Wines today are giving an amazing taste to many especially there are variety to choose from in the market. I hope to taste it all as well. Just this Holiday season too, I bought 2 different wines I never tasted before just to try a new. It's called the Cipes Brut and Riesling which I bought from this site, http://bit.ly/1xNgZI0 online. With Cipes Brut, I love the aromas of apple, lime, pear, almonds and grapefruit it leaves in my mouth. The whole family listed it as one of our favorite in fact. Anyway, thanks for sharing all these wines, something to look forward buying soon!

Re: “Jordan Winery

"Recently, I had the opportunity to spend a couple of days and nights at the Jordan Estate, and was bowled over not just by the excellent wines, but by the Jordan hospitality." Did they pay for everything, or did you?

Re: “Jordan Winery

Congratulations to the Jordan family on their success; and I applaud Mr. Jordan for his philanthropic endeavors. However, I do not believe that their wines are "world-class".

There are countless wineries in Sonoma (far less ostentatious) that produce superior wines.

Point of reference: a friend recently opened a 2004 Jordan Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon and I found it average, at best.

Cheers!

Re: “Corkage 101

Let me put to you this way, I don't care what the sommelier or manager or anyone else thinks. I AM NOT PAYING $30 for a $8 bottle of wine. I am happy to pay a corkage fee, but I am not going to pay $100 for a $30 bottle. If they don't like it, then say so and I won't go there. If they need to sell at these prices to make money, charge more for the food. If they want me to buy wine, charge $40 for a $30 bottle.

Re: “Corkage 101

I wish you would not have admitted to frequently bringing wines to restaurants Ted. The majority of people who BYOB are embarrassingly cheap and now they're going to say "Scheffler does it!" By the way, most BYOB types also order well done steaks.

Re: “Corkage 101

This is a great thread. Lots of good points. If you want to bring your own wine and the restaurant allows it, then accept the fee. Bring a nice bottle. No cupcakes or yellow tails.

I bring wine all the time when I go out to eat. Never had a problem.

Check out corkagefee.com to see what corkage fees local restaurants are charging.

Re: “Corkage 101

Great Article Ted, explaining both sides of the issue. I would like to point out that most of the restaurants in other states charge as much if not more for the same wine that you find in Utah establishments. If the out of state restaurants are paying wholesale you can see how their profits from wine are even greater than here.
I usually only BYOB if I have something special to open or if I know the restaurant has a wine list consisting of "Red (Cab or Merlot, retail $5), White (always Australian Chard-ick), Pink (White Zin-what else!".

Re: “Corkage 101

When I managed a food establishment, 83% of margin resulted from alcohol sales. Favoured customers were allowed to bring BYOB but the trade off was my staff had to closely monitor consumption rate due to state regulatory and insurance issues.

It was a delicate issue as customers were easily offended but most complied with my policy.

As a side note, though a sizeable selection of craft beers were stocked Coors Light and Bud Light were the top sellers.
