Is it ever right to order the house wine?

steveburstein | May 5, 2014 03:09 PM

Was wondering if it is ever desirable to order the house wine rather than a bottle. I will be traveling with my wife and just college graduated daughter to Paris and was curious to know if the collected wisdom of this board ever buys a carafe.

I am coming from California and belong to a few wineries in the Paso Robles area where they make "Rhone style" GSMs. My wife in summer loves a nice French rose´. My daughter like her petit syrah, but I don't think that is grape that is commonly grown in France (could be wrong about that) Thanks for any help or advice.
