The video gained thousands of views with people sharing their thoughts in the comments.

“Hold white wine like this so the hand doesn’t warm it,” wrote one person. “Red wine can handle being held higher as warmth releases flavors.”

Maria responded: “Thank you for your comment, but it depends on which wine you drink. For most of reds the best temperature is 15-20 degrees.”

Others stated they don’t really care how they hold their wine glasses.

“It doesn’t matter at the end, it’s going through your mouth,” wrote one person.

“Jesus, I’m just gonna pour straight into my mouth from the bottle and not even use a glass,” wrote another.

A third wrote: “Just drink it.”

Maria responded, “Etiquette is situational! Not an exact science.”
