Etiquette for Served Wines

WINES BY THE BOTTLE

The bottle is presented to the host/hostess to allow for verification that the proper bottle is being served.

When approval is signaled, the bottled is uncorked. The cork will be removed from the corkscrew and handed to the host/hostess.

Approximately 1 ounce of the wine, being poured with the label up, will be poured into the host’s/hostess’s glass.

After approval is given, the first woman to the host’s/hostess’s right will be served, then each of the remaining women, then the men, and the host/hostess last.

PROPER WINE SERVICE

A wine glass should never be lifted when filling/refilling it.

  • Red wines are poured to fill about 1/2 the glass maximum.
  • White wines are poured to fill about 2/3 the glass maximum.

NOTE: One 750ml bottle holds 25.4 ounces or fills approximately 6 glasses. One liter

bottle holds 34 ounces or fills approximately 9 glasses.
