Hi this is Cheryl with Expert Village. Now here’s a couple of tricks I learned in my years of catering and years of being a waiter. When you pour wine, you always want to hold it from the bottom, I’ve gone ahead and set up a table and in a formal table setting, you’ve got a couple different glasses. This is our water glass, we have a glass here and a glass here. This is actually for white wine because generally you’ll serve white wine first with your salad course or a soup and then you’ll do red wine. So when you pour the wine for your guests, it’s nice if you can hold it at the bottom and you go ahead and you pour it, and aim right for the middle of the glass. So I’m pouring the glass and this is probably good just to start. Now the trick is when you’re done, go ahead and turn the bottle and that way you won’t have any drips on your fabulous table cloth. Now if you want, you can go ahead with a napkin and sort of wipe down the bottle of wine. And look at that, pretty professional, huh? Now this is something I love, this is a little trivet for wine and when you have a dinner party you can leave these on the table, that way your wine bottle isn’t going to sit directly on the table, you’re not going to end up with that ring of red wine on your table. So that’s pretty easy and this just goes away, and there you go and we’re ready to get ready for our dinner party.
