Backlash on Overweight Bottles

Damn those heavy 750ml bottles! I'm so happy that Oz Clarke and Jancis Robinson have recently slammed these hefty bottles as reported in a recent Decanter article.

These bottles are a curse to aging wine merchants like me who strain heaving a box of them around the shop floor. And they cost consumers more to ship, and to what benefit? You even need to use both hands to pour lest you sprain your wrist. By the time you've finished the bottle you might have to pop some Aleve.

Should we just all get together and file a class action suit for carpal tunnel syndrome?
