(Memphis) Some valuable information for wine drinkers.

A lot of people are more generous in their wine pouring than they realize.

A new study found many people pour about 12 percent more than a normal serving without even realizing it.

Apparently we over pour if the glass is wide and the wine is white.

We do a better job doing a proper pour if the glass is on a table as opposed to holding it in your hand.

We also pour more accurately if the wine is red, in contrast to the clear glass.
