Operation Profile

Is it possible to raise wine sales per cover by more than 10%, even in a soft economy? Of course, as this Silicon Valley restaurant demonstrates with its clever, on-going wine sales contests.

Wine Merchandising

“Pricing as Promotion”. This Los Angeles restaurant is a local landmark (it opened its doors in 1908). But its value pricing and its 77% pouring cost (!) are raising eyebrows and attracting patrons to its wine selections.

Wine Reviews

188 recommended wines from seven countries, including fine sparkling wines from one of California’s best-known bubbly producers; a host of outstanding 1999 Pinot Noirs from California; several amazing values from Chile; and 23 of the best new releases from South Africa.
