Philip Aron wrote:Gabriel, what is your definition of a "glass of wine" ? 80, 125 175 cc etc
For example I drink daily, seven days a week, two glasses of red wine per day, each of 125 cc. this represents a yearly consumption of 90 liters.

Mike_F wrote:I agree with Philip that one should stop drinking before your palate shuts down. However Rogov z"l used to say that when doing an extensive wine tasting, he could refresh his palate by chewing a mouthful of plain cooked white rice (without salt or any spices), spitting it out, and rinsing well. Probably useful only for professionals who need to taste dozens of wines in a days' work.
