A new study by bottling company Cobevco reveals that Wednesday evening is the most common time to start drinking wine as it marks the mid way point between the beginning of the week and the weekend.
According to the findings, men are the first ones to give in and have their first glass at 6:40 p.m. on Wednesdays while women tend to begin at around 7:07 p.m.
In addition, the study found that 76 percent of people who start drinking on Wednesdays prefer to do so at home rather than go out.
"[I] "always gets into my pajamas and enjoy a few glasses at around 7 p.m. with my dinner," said study participant Laura Phillips. "It's the perfect time to sit on the sofa and share a nice bottle of red."
