Every church is different with regards to wine. I think it may have to do with the budget of the church. I live in an affluent county and the churches have a lot of cash.

The bread and wine are always mixed. In the RCC this is very subtle.

In my church some parishioners dip the bread in wine.

I served hundreds of Roman masses as an altar boy in the 60s. Only the priest had wine. All other congregants had the wafer only when it came to receiving Communion.

Perhaps it's changed here since as well. I wouldn't know as I haven't taken Communion since the late 60's. I'll have to ask my brothers. They've remained Catholic and take Communion.

That was more than 50 years ago. I can only talk about the parish that i now attend. On a side note I never drink the wine. I am not into the communal chalice thing.
