and I agree completely. Yes, most of us realize a wine glass is never meant to be filled, that isn't the point. yes, as you say, the point is: the cost per glass for a 5 oz taste.

Wine by the glass is the most marked-up beverage you can get in a restaurant, from a pub to fine dining. Any place that has a "house" wine by the glass is getting anywhere from a 200-400% markup on it. The lowest wine markup is for the highest-priced (retail) bottles.

And wine pours are pretty standard size-wise. I really hate when customers act like I'm ripping them off by not giving them more wine for free.
