Mr Grumpy: heartbreak bottles
Big 750ml wine bottles look great. They help justify inflated prices and add a little glamour to the dining table. Their oversize dimensions smugly advertise the fact that you are drinking a super-premium wine.
Every wine drinker knows that the last glass in every bottle tastes best. Large bottles have one big downfall. When you heft the bottle to pour the last glass – there isn’t one. Damn!
