What do you think about restaurants having a section of their wine list specifically for “cult wines”? I know of a restaurant doing this and I personally didn’t really like the idea. To me, cult wine means: overpriced wine that enjoys a higher demand than supply.
I see this as getting away from the foundation of what wine is all about, and focusing on everything it is not about, putting the emphasis on the price and availability instead of what’s actually inside the bottle. I have no problems with cult wines themselves, more power to them for working their tails off creating a wine people will pay hundreds of dollars for directly from the winery, not including restaurant markups.
What do you think?
