Do you open wine guests bring?

Myka Meier, founder of Beaumont Etiquette, weighs in: “When someone brings you a bottle of wine, you as the host are not obligated to open or serve the bottle that you have been given. “If you're bringing a bottle with the intention of the host to keep as a gift, wrap it up,” she suggests.

How much wine should you pour?

Since wine glasses come in many shapes—so very many shapes—and sizes, it's hard to glean just how much wine you're getting from restaurant to restaurant, wine bar to wine bar, glass to glass. But the rule of thumb is that a pour is somewhere around the 5-ounce mark.
