The Olive Garden Wine Trick You Probably Never Heard About
By Cristine Struble
While Olive Garden's unlimited breadsticks and endless pasta bowls ensure no one leaves the table hungry, this wine trick can help narrow down the perfect pairing for your dinner.
Olive Garden allows guests of legal drinking age to sample any of its wines. A 1-ounce pour is complimentary, and the restaurant has an abundant selection on its wine list.
From a bold Chianti to a crisp pinot grigio, there's a wine bottle for any palate. Olive Garden's wine list has tremendous breadth at reasonable price points.
You can rely on Olive Garden servers who are trained to offer guests the best wine experience. The website also offers broad suggestions on which wines to pair with menu items.
For guests who prefer to explore solo, Ziosk tablets at Olive Garden restaurants allow guests to peruse food and beverage pairings at the table.
This tool can be a good starting point to discover how complementary and contrasting flavors can impact the meal, but personal preferences can trump all wine rules.
