I was at a wine tasting this weekend. When I went for my refill, I got to hear the pourer give a long talk on proper pouring technique to someone. Why I had to listen to this, I don't know. That lady's glass was full and mine was empty. Shouldn't the pourer have been pouring for me rather than yakking away?

Any-hoo, apparently proper technique dictates that you fill only to the widest point of the glass so as to maximize the aroma.

Well, la-ti-da! I know what kind of glass I'm taking next time.
