    Different wineries seem to offer different numbers of wine as part of their "flight" tasting. What do you consider the optimum number of wines to taste in a "flight"

    Wine by the Half Glass?

    Posted by Felicia September 6, 2009 - 9 votes - 1,153 views
    Recently overheard a lady talking about a new restaurant, that they offer wine by the half glass as well as full glass or bottle. "Why would any one want a half a glass of wine?!" she said. What do you think?

    *Gasp* Bad wine!

    Occasionally we all find a wine that although not corked, is just so poorly made and so foul that we spit it, dump it and make a mental note to knee the winemaker in the groin should the opportunity present itself. How many bottles have you dumped?

    Aside from the wines themselves, do you collect any wine souvenirs?
