As Chubbs wisely said of golf, "it's all in the hips." But when it comes to pouring wine, "it's all in the wrist," according to the experts at VinePair.
Face it: even though you drink wine like it's your damn job (you wish), it's dangerously easy to drip wine down the side of the bottle when pouring a glass -- especially if you've already had, erm, more than one. But there's a quick trick to avoid the dripping and spilling, and as seen in a demonstration by the site's "Wine Geek" Keith Beavers, it's equally easy. Watch and learn:
It's all in the wrist.

There you have it, folks. If you "want to be sexy" the next time you're serving yourself (let's be honest here) some wine, pour it up to the curve of the glass and then turn your wrist as you finish pouring. It's that easy and the technique can probably be applied to pouring all kinds of spirits, so cheers.
