-- If you have ever ordererd a bottle of wine in a nice restaurant or participated in a wine tasting, you surely have noticed that sommeliers pour the wine always holding the bottle with one hand at the base. This certainly looks very elegant and nonchalant but is actually an art; pouring wine in this way is not as easy as it looks but an important part of becoming a real sommelier.
How about a little training to learn how to pour wine in this way? With a bit of confidence and practice you can sure learn it and impress your guests at the next dinner party!
That said, there is a basic rule to pour the wine in an elegant way, even if you don't hold it immediately right at the base: Never hold the bottle by the neck, this looks really inexpertly. Try to hold the bottle as close to the base as possible instead. In addition always hold it with one hand and do not cover the label. It should always remain visible.
The producers of wine bottles are well aware of this and design bottles with characteristics that make it as easy as possible for sommeliers and laymen to follow these rules. This is of course also a an important aspect to consider for wine producers when choosing the bottles for their product.
Still the design is not the only factor that is important when choosing the wine bottle. It is also crucial to choose one that perfectly preserves the wine and looks elegant to stand out on the shelves and be competitive in the market.
