I’m Drawing A Blanc, Part 2

, , , , | Right | March 3, 2020

(I am working behind the bar when a customer asks me to show him our list of red wines. I show him our selection.)

Customer: “Do you have the Sauvignon Blanc?”

Me: “Yes, sir, in the white.”

Customer: “No, I want it in the red.”

Me: “Sir, I’m afraid that Sauvignon Blanc comes only as a white wine, hence the name… blanc.”

Customer: “Actually, there is a red Sauvignon Blanc. I should know; I’ve had it before.”

Me: “Sir, I’m sorry but there really is no such wine. If it’s a Cabernet Sauvignon or a Sangiovese you’re after, then I could offer you a red, but since ‘blanc’ means ‘white,’ I’m afraid there’s nothing I can do.”

(He had a merlot and stormed off telling his wife how stupid I was.)
