Glass Size Affects Amount Consumed
Glass size can affect how much wine you drink. For instance, 4 ounces poured in a small 6 oz. class looks like a lot more than that same amount poured into a larger 12 oz. glass. Aside from the obvious, it plays tricks on your mind either making you think you’ve sipped much more or not that much at all. Restaurants have tried this experiment by changing glasses from their regular size to either smaller versions or larger ones. They immediately noticed that their wine sales changed. With the smaller glasses, many folks would not order a second glass feeling that they may have had too much already, while with the larger glasses, would definitely order more. Using a smaller glass might be a better way to control consumption.
