A good wine advisor makes a real difference

To the editor:

I want to tell you how much I enjoyed the Sept. 20 Eagle article on matching wines with pizza (Eagle Food page).

The article touched on but did not really emphasize the great help an adviser in a local store can be. In my case, she was able to point out that of the recommendations were "pricey." Some of the recommendations were ones that store didn't stock, so she suggested comparables.

I think there is a lot to be said for dealing with one store and adviser with whom you could develop a relationship with positive and negative opinions about some choices.
