Poll: Do You Order House Wines at Restaurants?

Do You Order House Wines at Restaurants?

I recently read that many restaurants are beginning to collaborate with individual wineries and private-label brands to create higher-end house wines. While I've never been one to order house wines — I'd rather order the vintage of my choice by the glass — the concept makes me reconsider my wine preferences when dining out. Do you feel the same?

If I'm having a nice meal, I'll order somewhere that goes nicely with the food. If I'm just going for a few glasses of wine at HH (only occasionally of course; all things in moderation), I'll often order the house wine.

If there's a happy hour special on it or something. Otherwise, I'll get the wine I'd like to drink.

I usually choose a house wine because they are moderately priced, and seem to pair with many things on the menu, so you can share a half bottle with your friend or whomever your out to dinner with.

Sometimes I'll order it. It really depends on where I am dining.

My experiences with house wines is that they are not very good. If I'm going to pay for wine when I'm out, I want to enjoy it. If I were at a party or someone else was treating and got house wine I would graciously drink it, but I would always prefer to order something nicer,
