Specific questions of this study include: 1. What factors contribute to the amount of wines sold by the waitstaff? 2. What effect does wine instruction have on the sales of wine in restaurants? 3. What effect does wine instruction have on the participants' product knowledge, selling skills and service techniques? 4. What are the attitudes of the food servers toward wine instruction? 5.
