Finished wine bottle etiquette
Darby singing Blue Moon with red eye and red wine
When you finish a bottle of wine should you turn the bottle upsidedown in the wine cooler? This was done at a pub to let the waitress know the wine was finished.Darby Says
Which pub do you drink at Marie? I saw this done about 20 years ago but thought it was a passing phase. I think it makes the patron look like a yobbo. Perhaps you think so as well, hence your question. Apparently bikies turn a glass up on the bar if they want a fight.
Wine etiquette varies with fashion, some things seem ultra cool to some people but are a bit off for others. My pet peeve is waiters who keep topping up your glasses.
If one of my friends was so boorish to do this I would unfriend them on facebook and detwitter them for good measure. But perhaps I'm showing my age.
As you can see from the image above I am a great role model of wine etiquette.
