London - Drinking wine in the evening or among friends is meant to be a civilised affair.
But it seems many of us are letting the side down. For half of Britons regularly commit faux pas when they enjoy a glass, a survey has found.
The top error for 36 percent of the 2 000 wine drinkers polled was storing their bottle of red in the fridge. Others simply forget their manners totally.
Nearly 30 percent confessed to “necking” their drink – polishing it off a little too quickly – rather than savouring the flavour.
A greedy 13 percent said they fill their glass to the brim, and an even greedier one in 12 said they drink it from the bottle.
