DI/DO is shocked, shocked, to discover that not all wine we drink is drunk with meals:
This was the first time the Wine Opinions survey had looked at whether wine and food were consumed together. Of all the wine the respondents drink in a given week, the survey found, only 41 percent was consumed while sitting down to a meal. Nineteen percent was consumed with chips, nuts, crackers and other light snacks, and 14 percent while preparing food. A full 26 percent of wine was consumed without food at all.
