When I flicked on this segment in the car, I almost thought I was listening to an episode of Portlandia - The level of ridiculousness of this set of guests was beyond anything I could have dreamed up myself. They bring their own glassware to restaurants so as to properly enjoy the wine they're also BYOBing? Life is too short to be so pretentious!!! I study and research food trends for a living and also am a rather solid home cook, so I know my way quite well around a flavor pairing. But these two should be recurring characters on some kind of show that mocks food enthusiasts. Thanks for the chuckle, Leonard.

16-oz. steaks? In Argentina, maybe, but I wouldn't assume that applies in Chile, or anywhere else in South America. Methinks the guests overgeneralize.

Are these kids out in Williamsburg??

Can your guests speak about Lambrusco?

"Gewürztraminer" is not acceptable with ANY food!!

Or, by itself, for that matter.

I don't get the whole idea that only certain wines can go w/certain foods. Some people seem to think this is the only aspect of eating where people can't have different tastes.

I love when people bring wine to see what they're into...

These are my favorites.
