Here’s Glenn Smith’s Story to start it off…
Our friends invited us to dinner one evening. We had been to a concert in town so we made our way, rather unpretentiously, to a high end steakhouse (who shall remain unnamed for obvious reasons). The server quickly made her way to our table, introduced herself and brought us the wine list a few minutes later. One of our guests took it upon himself to order the wine and swiftly zeroed in on a wonderful six year old Amarone on the back page of the menu.
When the server returned to take our wine order, our friend asked for the Amarone and quickly added that he would like for the bottle to be decanted before we drink it. Looking slightly bewildered but remaining calm, our server replied “yes, of course” and proceeded to retreat.
When she returned, she addressed our friend rather apologetically and said: “Sorry, sir. We don’t have decanted wine here.”
