Going to Manresa--what wines do you suggest I bring?

Hi all:

I'm going to Manresa later this month. I am looking for suggestions on wines you suggest would go well with his menu.

I'm a tad worried of insulting them if I bring a "sub par" wine even though I'm not interesting doing the all out splurge with the full pairing.

What is the etiquitte after all? I have some special bottles to me, but I don't know if they are at all appropriate. Thanks!

    I'm not much help, but I can point out that you should ensure that the bottles you are bringing are not on the wine list.

    I'd take a close look at the price differential between the corkage for the number of bottles you plan on bringing and the wine pairing. Through in a little equalizer for the reduction in stress and added experience and it may be a much closer call.

      They should be willing to email or fax you a copy of their most up-to-date wine list for you to look over.
