Like many DC wine lovers, I eagerly awaited the opening of Proof
restaurant in the Penn Quarter district, with its avowed emphasis on
wines. More than 30 selections by the glass, a reserve list based on the
owners personal collection of the best and most exclusive wines of the
world – all this seemed too good to be true for the vinoscenti of DC.
However, I was dismayed to find on my first visit that the list featured
a mass-produced Viognier from California, despite the number of
outstanding examples of that grape from nearby Virginia. My first
impression is online at Washingtonian.com’s Best Bites blog.
