A good wine list is a business imperitve, no?

Am I missing something, why do I constantly believe that having a good wine list is important when so many restaurants seem to ignore that business imperative?ย 

Having a good selection of wine can be important for a restaurant for a number of reasons, here come the rocket sceince! ๐Ÿš€๐Ÿคฏ๐Ÿพ๐Ÿท๐Ÿฅ‚๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿ‘‡

Wine can be a major profit center for a restaurant. Many people are willing to pay a premium for a good bottle of wine, especially if they are dining out at a nice restaurant.

Wine can also be a key part of the dining experience. A good wine can enhance the flavour of the food and create a more sophisticated atmosphere.

A well-curated wine list can also be a point of differentiation for a restaurant. In a competitive market, having a unique or highly regarded wine selection can help a restaurant stand out.

Offering a variety of wine options can also make a restaurant more appealing to a wider range of customers. Some people prefer red wine, while others prefer white wine or sparkling wine. By offering a range of options, a restaurant can cater to the preferences of a larger number of diners.

Finally, wine can be a key part of the overall ambiance of a restaurant. A nice bottle of wine can make a special occasion feel even more special, and create a memorable experience for diners.
