light weeks, 1-2, heavy weeks (usually looked back upon as being better weeks for whatever reason), 3-5 bottles.

Cool I look at it this way...the first third of my life, 'restraint' was my middle name. Now, I'm discovering my passions....booyah! And wine is one of them!!

My husband and I split a bottle most nights, but as he prefers red and I prefer white, sometimes it ends up being two bottles.

Wow, this is a thread bump to match all thread bumps. In case anybody's still out there in Learning-land: (personal consumption) about 3 bottles a week. Usually a single glass or two tops on weeknights, 3 or 4 per day on weekends.

Consumption is considered overboard when you no longer control it and it controls you. To answer the initial question that is between me and my liver Wink.

DW doesn't drink and raises hell when I do. However she did buy me a cellar (go figure). I usually bring out a bottle or two per week when friends come to dinner.

2-3 bottles get opened per week in the house, reaching 4 or 5 if we have guests round (infrequently). My better half only drinks white so I end up drinking about 3/4 of what's open.

I like your thinking, but I find that bongloads seem to bring out hard to discern flavors and aromas better. I'm talking minute plus finishes with hints of fun-yuns and temple balls.

MMMMM...

How much I drink truly depends on the company I'm with. Anything from 1 bottle a week up to a dozen I guess, but a glass of port most evenings is a newfound hobby.

When I'm watching the weight, one a week. When I'm not probably three a week.

Between my wife and I, I'd say 6-10 per week too. Probably 3 during the week with dinner. It is very rare that a bottle gets opened and not finished the same night. The rest on the weekend. How many bottles depending on the company and mood of the night.

I too like to finish the night with a good single malt, though I find I am often the only one partaking.

Half of what my wife says, and twice as much as I tell my doctor!

I am new to drinking wine and I was just wondering how much some of you drink in any given week.

How much do you have?

Seriously, since my wife no longer drinks reds, I'm down to 1 or 1 & a half per week.

In a slow week, wife and I split 4-5. Most weeks though are 6-9 between us. We might skip two nights a week without wine. My doctor told me any more than 10 glasses a week is really bad. Screw him, most Italians drink way more than that and they live a long time.

My wife and I split a bottle nightly. We'll do more if we have friends over. Monday's I've got WSET classes so I taste 10-12 wines that night but we spit.

Sometimes wine is to slow to solve the problems of the week.
