This One Rule Of Etiquette That Everyone Breaks

There is one etiquette rule that many people break. The rule is about how to properly hold a wine or champagne glass. This has really become my pet peeve! It annoys me so much to see many ladies make this etiquette mistake.

Unfortunately, most people are not aware of how to properly hold a wine or champagne glass. Even affluent and elegant ladies make this common mistake.

People who are educated in etiquette, wine or have done a sommelier course will know that a wine or champagne glass should always be held from the stem and never the bowl. It’s all about refining your etiquette and presentation, especially if you want to network within high society and achieve a luxurious lifestyle.

@the.la.way – Holds it correctly!

You might be thinking:

“Who cares how you hold the glass? Let people do what they feel is the most comfortable…”

While you could argue that, there are many reasons for this etiquette rule.

► If you drink something chilled like white wine or champagne, holding the glass from the bowl will warm up the drink and spoil its taste.

► You’ll leave awful fingerprints that don’t look very nice on the glass. Leaving marks on glass is never elegant or sophisticated.

► I personally think it looks less elegant to hold the glass by the bowl than to hold it delicately with your fingers on the stem. It just looks more ladylike and less unsophisticated.
