Diet gurus, cardiologists, health and longevity experts, and the American Heart Association recommend moderate wine consumption. But it is difficult to judge the size of a wine pour, and using a measuring device is not exactly sexy. The Mr. Picky® Moderation Wine Glass is a subtle way of measuring your wine: the bubbles discretely mark 4, 6, and 8 ounces. Those familiar with the Mr Picky® iPhone Apps will love the abstract version of the familiar Mr Picky® logo. Moderating intake means being selective about the wine you drink which is what Mr Picky is all about.
“We love the Mr. Picky® Moderation Wine Glass. What a great idea to help people enjoy their delicious wine by keeping it easy to stay mindful and aware of just how much you are actually serving yourself. It is so interesting how easy it is to underestimate how much you really are drinking, especially for those of us who LOVE wine! After all, balance is the best way, as we know from the healthy Sonoma Philosophy.”
Internationally recognized Cardiothoracic Surgeon Steven R. Gundry, MD, former Professor and Chairman of Cardiothoracic Surgery at Loma Linda University, and the Palm Springs Institute had this to say:
“As readers of my book Dr. Gundry’s Diet Evolution know, I am a big fan of the health benefits of wine, particularly red wine. I strongly urge those who can tolerate alcohol to have one or two glasses of red wine daily. But what exactly is “a glass”? Unfortunately, I have found that my patients greatly underestimate how much they drink, with bad consequences for their health and their weight. Guess what? A “glass” is 4 or 5 ounces of wine. How much is enough, how much is too much? Well, the ingenious folks at Mr. Picky® have solved your problem! The Mr. Picky® Wine glass has discrete bubbles on the side showing 4, 6, and 8 ounces, all embossed on a lovely to hold, elegant stemware. What a great gift for yourself, or your wine loving friends. Have a wine tasting party, and shock people with just how 4 ounces of wine is not much! I’m giving some Mr. Picky® wine glasses to my 85-year-old parents for Christmas. With these in hand, and my book, they will sail into their 100’s and remember every moment! So drink up (but only to the dot) with the Mr. Picky® Wine Glass and enjoy great health, the sensible way!”
The Mr. Picky® Moderation Glass offers these special features:
- Bubbles discretely measure 4, 6, and 8oz
- Fine lead-free crystal from a Riedel owned factory in Germany
- Dishwasher safe but hand-washing is recommended to preserve the design
- A subtle easy way to measure consumption
We love great wine and love being healthy. We wanted a way to help people do both, to have their wine and drink it too. Cheers!
