Topping Up Wine Glasses
My theory behind this is some people just want a little wine and others want more wine. One person may be driving and another might just want a sip. Rather than me top up someone's wine glass who doesn't want any I would rather let the host do it.
You cannot take the wine out of the glass you just topped up if the person is not going to drink it. I could always ask everyone but to me that is just interrupting.
Like I mentioned earlier if there is just a bit left someone will say let her or him take the rest. Then they will argue and the host will insist. Usually then if there is still some meal left if the host wants more wine he will order right there.
I don't like being pushy.
