  • Is the spelling correct?
  • Are the wines logically sequenced?
  • Are the vintages listed?


  • Does the list offer appropriate choices in keeping with the style of the restaurant?

Does the list give the diner a reasonable choice and quality selection of:

  • Grape varieties

  • Price Range
  • Commercial and small wine producers
  • Imported wines
  • Value for money
  • Wines by the glass
