Wine Bottle
by: Ms P Etiquette

Dear Mr. Fisher,

It is poor manners to invert the empty wine bottle in the bucket. We do not invert our empty glasses or dinner plates on the table when empty, do we? It may have been fashionable somewhere at sometime, but is quite rude by any practical etiquette standards.

Fun question, though!

Whether to invert empty wine bottle
by: Anonymous

I was taught that to put an empty bottle upside down in an ice bucket is an insult indicating the wine was unsatisfactory. More should stand it in the bucket upright and place a napkin over it, as a sign of respect for a bottle enjoyed and that would indicate that waiter can remove it from the table send enwuire if another was being requested.
