Wine glasses clink, bottles pop and the sweet sounds of classical piano play in the background as certified sommelier Dan Colgan of longtime favorite Christner’s Prime Steak & Lobster recalls how he got hooked on wine. It was the early 80s, and he was a freshman in college. While all his friends at the keg parties were drinking their body weights in Lone Star and Schlitz, he was starting a love affair with Robert Mondavi pinot noir, discovering a passion not only for the taste, but for the sophistication and romance that comes with the enjoyment of wine whether sipped over dinner or served at a holiday soiree.
