We recommend reviewing the restaurant website before arriving at your interview to review their wine menu options. Popular responses to this question might include the house wine or any specials that are currently being offered. The interviewer wants to hear that you have some knowledge of wine and is not seeking one specific response, so feel free to share your wine of choice along with what menu item you would pair it with.
