How much do you drink?

What's your average wine consumption for the week?

    1. Well, it is at least between one and 3 bottles a week I'd say for me and well as a few beers here and there

      1. It depends by the week, but I probably consume 5 - 6 btls. per week. I came up with this, by dividing our last three weeks' worth of wines by 2, as my wife joins me. I added a factor of +15%, as she is usually a glass, or so, behind me.

          Close here, I drink a beer usually before dinner and sometimes a bourbon after dinner. Wine depends what I am having for dinner. Last week 1 ... the week before 4. Company. You never know.

              I could easily do that ... then I may not be on here at night ...

              My ex and I could easily do that at dinner and often did. No ex so 1 bottle is a bit much. Still have to work. :) I do love a good bottle. I have one sitting out on my counter right now.

                We're close, but I think that you nudge me out by a cork, or two...

                  I win ... whoo hoo. I'm not too sure that is a good thing. :) Well who knows. Depends on the week. I do have my cold brew and my bourbon at night. Wine depends whats for dinner. My egg sandwich, Naaaa, or my chipped beef with my favorite junk go to food, naaaaa. Maybe a meal I actually make when the time arises, lol. Just bought a great 16 a bottle, medium to low priced, but great new zealand wine. Can't wait to try it. Tomorrow with my fresh grouper.

          1. 1 1/2 bottle of wine per week + 2 or 3 apéritif (usually fino sherry)

            1. Average week doesn't exist. Can go 6-7 days without, then 6-7 with a bottle each night + after dinner drink with colleagues... Probably totals about 20-25 bottles a month for wife and I with me drinking 60% of it. (and though this wasn't asked, probably 2 dozen beer and 1/2 bottle of scotch each month).
