WINE O’CLOCK: Fine dining in your own kitchen

When I eat in a restaurant with a good wine list (a fading memory, alas) I like to drink it by the glass, letting me try more of the range: a crisp white with the starter, a smooth red with the main course and a nice dessert wine with some cheese to finish things off. It’s an expensive little pleasure because restaurants impose a heft mark-up on wine. But I don’t begrudge it. It’s how they make a profit
