During the Renaissance, Drinking Wine Was a Fight Against Physics – Gastro Obscura

THIS ISN’T A CANDY DISH, or a cake stand. It’s a wine glass, circa 1600, from Venice, Italy.If you attended a banquet at the house of an Italian lord, you’d be handed one of these, filled to the brim with red wine. You’d be expected to lift it by wrapping three fingers around the base, and raise it to your lips without spilling a drop. The whole process should look effortless.
