What are the differences between a half glass & full glass of wine?

Have you ever wanted to know what the difference is between a "Full Glass" and "Half Glass" is? On the left we have a 6oz pour (full glass) in our 14oz wine glass. In the middle is a 3oz pour (half glass) in the 14oz wine glass. The last one on the right shows the half glass, which is 3oz, in the small wine glass. Which is how we serve our half glass pours. We hope that clears up any confusion! Come on down tonight and try some half glasses of our local reds. Sample a few and find out what your favorites are! Cheers!
