IN his continuing search for the more weird, wacky and wondrous in the world of  travel, David Ellis says a survey by Sheraton Hotels & Resorts has found that after a long day in the office or while travelling, the majority of people would prefer a glass of good wine to most other things – including even hopping into bed with their partner.

The survey that was conducted in the US, Germany, China, Argentina and China found nearly half of those asked – an amazing 48% – said  they’d make the wine option #1 as a means of unwinding.


As well, 29% said they’d give up their smartphone for a day in return for a top wine at the end of a busy day, 23% their social media account for a week, and while travelling 23% would give up use of their hotel’s spa for that glass of wine, and 12% the gym.


And possibly most surprising of all, 23% would give up sex with their partner for a week, in exchange for a glass of premium wine after a long day.


The hotel group undertook the survey as part of its premium wine program that takes a regular look into global-traveller guests’ wine drinking habits, taste preferences, spending and social influences.
