I've always thought that wine pricing was outrageous, but a recent Chowhound discussion convinced me that it's not that unreasonable to mark up 3 or 4 times retail. Restaurants don't get the volume discounts of stores. They have to pay to store the wine. Glassware is expensive and easily broken. Taking the fall on spoiled bottles also eats into their bottom line. Top places also have to hire someone to handle the wines.
As someone pointed out, no one complains about a huge mark up on a simply salad. Maybe it's because wine prices climb so quickly.
I'll have to read the article, though. The restaurant of a local wine shop here in New Orleans sell glasses of wine for $1.50 and beers for 75˘.

You type very well for someone who has access to $1.50 wine and 75˘ beer. Of course, it is only 4:30.

Its like you read my mind! You appear to know so much about this, like you wrote the book in it or something.
I think that you can do with some pics to drive the message home a bit,
but other than that, this is excellent blog.
A great read. I will definitely be back.
