Fun poll of the day!

Question:
On average, when you open a bottle of wine, do you drink the entire bottle (company included) or partially drink and save for another day?

Choices:
Full bottle
Partial bottle

my wife and I usually don't make it through a bottle just between the two of us. If we have people over then the bottle's always dry at the end of the night.


In Canada? Really? Duties in?

For me, I would say it's about 50-50, and depends heavily on my wife's mood, (and how well she likes what I've opened)


Stay thirsty my friends.

Full bottles.

My wife doesn't drink, so I will usually only open a bottle at hme when guests come over. But when they do, that bottle is going to be emptied...

Most of the time, when I'm opening a bottle, it's for myself. My wife doesn't drink a lot of the bottle and I'm good for about 2 glasses. Now, if company's over, then sure...bye bye probably to a few bottles at that.

It used to be solely full bottles (except sometimes dessert wines), but lately there are a few bottles that last on to day two or more.

Are you referring to the first or second bottle? Devilish

My wife and I will share half a bottle, then drink the rest the next day.

Wines that are good the first day will still be pretty good (but with a different profile obviously) the next day. Every now and then, a wine will be better the second day.

This is appropriate for my house. I can't imagine having less than a full bottle if both my wife and I are drinking...that's 2 glasses each. We will go to a second bottle sometimes, too, but not finish that one.

Usually depends, lately it has been one glass for the gf and 3 glasses for me. Going to revert back to the days of 1 glass each, then finish the next day.
