Wines By the Glass

February 21, 2008


Last night J and I went for a celebration dinner to Craft—I had oysters and duck, perhaps my two favorite things in the world. And J ordered a glass of wine that he liked so much that he wrote it down. The wine was $18 a glass—so we thought, maybe we could afford a bottle of the wine (or even a case) when we feel like splurging. And we’re dying to find one wine that we both like enough to buy a case. The wine is: Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Pierre Usseglio, a blend of Grenache and Syrah from the Rhone Valley. So, $18 a glass. Guess how much a bottle is. Go ahead… Guess. It’s $170!!! This makes me feel 2 different things. 1. Yikes! So, I guess we won’t be buying this bottle of wine. And 2. Wow! What a great deal we got at Craft for only $18 a glass (never thought I’d be impressed by how cheap an $18 glass of wine is).

  1. you guys are such ballers.

  2. I know! I couldn’t stop talking about how much everything cost all night long (like, can you BELIEVE this glass of wine is $18? And, there’s no bottle on the wine list under $60 so we can only get a glass each)… not exactly sure that’s baller behavior. But I’m a baller at heart.

  3. wow! that is so good to know. makes me want to go to craft. xo
