Well, how do you fare compared to the Zeitgeist? Chat up your fellow wooters and let us know how lame this poll was or what obvious choices we missed. For example: Was this poll a) STUPID, b) DUMB, c) POINTLESS or d) ALL OF THE ABOVE?

Ever order, at a casual eatery, a red that was just a bit too warm?

If everything else about it is fine, I will throw a bit of ice in it just to bring it down to a better temp.

Freeze grapes and put them in there. Wine gets chilled, doesn't get watered down, and you have a snack when you're done.

Frozen grapes all the way. And they are real yummy after sitting in your wine

If we don't have any white chilled and have to open a new bottle at room temperature, my wife puts plenty of ice in to cool it off.

Frozen wine. I drink the same kind all the time, so if I have extra I'll freeze it for cooking later or for icing a glass of room temp wine. Grape also work well if I'm out of the other

My wife and her parents put ice in their white wine more often than not when it is a straight forward table wine.

It figures. Do you then stir it, as well?

For someone who seems to love beer so much, you certainly aren't very nice to it.

I would never recommend ice in any half decent wine, but if you are served plonk (i.e. most wines under $5 a bottle), sometimes ice will help alleviate the pain of drinking it.

If ice doesn't solve the problem, you could consider mixing in some vodka

Frozen grapes don't water down the wine and make a yummy treat at the end of the glass ;)

We're not getting anywhere with this dweeb. Probably drinks Miller Light and thinks it's good.

found some small, sealed plastic bags with water in them that are kept in the frezer. Works great.
