Monday Manners: Rule #146

Rule #146: Open the Guest's Bottle of Wine

When you invite people into your own home for a meal, and your guests bring wine as the hostess gift, open it. Do not put it in your wine cellar or save it for the second or third bottle of the evening. Uncork the wine right away, open it up with a decanter while you all take pleasure in a cocktail, and then enjoy the wine with the people who brought it. Wine should be shared, not squandered.
