Number of my followers on Facebook who were asked if they know why white wine glasses are smaller than red wine glasses. Among the responses: 1) There are small glasses? 2) Because the glass industry needs to sell more product. 3) Because red wine drinkers drink more. 4) Because with a smaller glass, you don’t have to drink as much of that crappy chardonnay your husband bought.
