Frequently asked questions

What the heck does Ahso mean?!

An AhSo is a tool used to open a bottle of wine, when a corkscrew may not do the job. It is often used for older bottles when the cork may crumble if tackled with a corkscrew. More about Ahsos here: AhSo is a restaurant with a strong focus on beverage pairings, especially wine. As Chef Jason is fond of saying: "A wine that requires an Ah-so to remove the cork almost always means you’re about to drink some really good wine."
