• As you pour, make sure the label is always fronting to each guests.• To pour, use your wrists! Tip the bottle slowly downward until the wine begins to flow. When the wine has been poured, pivot the wrist, and twist the neck of the bottle upward, so the wine will not drip from the bottle, and avoid any spillage.
