If you go to a restaurant...and can't finish your meal, you get to take the leftovers home right? Well, until now, the same coudln't be said about a bottle of wine.
It's never happened to me, but if you go out with someone who isn't a big drinker and order a bottle of wine, chances are you have two choices:
1. Leave an un-empty bottle at the restaurant
2. Drink the entire thing down and drive when you probably shouldn't
That's all changed now though...and it really does benefit everyone involved.
There's a new law in New York state that lets you take the wine home...as long as it's recorked and in a sealed bag.
The lovely ladies of Wine Whys have a post today about it...check it out...
It is also in today's New York Times.
