Here is just one example of the many I saw today. It's from the site called Business Insider. It reads: "A sommelier explains why you should buy the cheapest bottle on the wine list."
Well, sommelier Mark Oldman, author of "How To Drink Like a Billionaire," did sort of say that although not in such a declarative and all-encompassing way. Here is the full quote; I've underlined the part Business Insider avoided because it might have made it a less enticing headline:
"You are better served to order the cheapest wine, which diners often neglect out of fear or embarrassment and thus is often a better value. Just make sure you do so at a restaurant that cares about its wine, where even modestly prices wines are of admirable quality."
