Say you enter a restaurant, tell the waiter that you would like some wine, but don't know how to choose a good wine and ask him what's on offer. Do you expect the waiter to tell you that some people drink fermented yak urine?

Of course, you don't. You expect the waiter to either tell you that they don't have anything suitable for your tastes, because you've entered a beer bar, but there's a winery around the corner, and if the budget allows for a bit more, they can reserve you a nice table somewhere. Or the waiter should tell you what the open wines are and what he recommends.

Often the recommendations here are more akin to instructions on how to select a good area and acre, and which kinds of grapes to plant instead of which wine to choose, but your reply isn't even that.

Update: Fixed typo (chose -> choose)
