Wine + violin = wineolin?
In an ad for wine, a violinist plays four glasses on a tray.

Okay, so it's an ad. But it's a great ad. Beautiful music and creativity, and don't you just wanna try that wineolin?

130 Liters of wine? 

That would be one heck of a party.  LOL

Where do you get enough cheese to go with that?

I think if all of us here on the forum met up, we could consume that quite readily! cheers (meh, no wine-drinking smileys...)

The only issues would arise when we got done with the wine and wanted to play our violins...

And it raises the question of if red wines have a darker sound than white wines..

dunno

I knew that you could make tones by running your finger over the rim of a wine glass, but I didn't know you could bow a glass. I wonder if he really was getting a tone or if it was just for show.

Don't think I'd want to drink wine with rosin in it though.

When the work's all done and the sun's settin' low,

I pull out my fiddle and I rosin up the bow.

In order to make a sound with your finger on the glass, it need's to be we. I would suspect there was no rosin on the bow, only water or wine.

I'm wondering who was elected to sample the wine then wash the glasses. dunno

There are "resinated wines", Retsina for example, that are intentionally flavoured with pine resin.  I was told they are an acquired taste.  I never personally acquired it, I guess.  When I have wine, I prefer it rather on the "foxy" (fruity) side.  And while violin rosin may contain pine resin, I think that at least some brands have other ingredients that probably make it not good to eat or drink.

So far as bows on glass, not sure if it can be done with a wineglass, but in physics class years ago the teacher used talcum powder on a flat sheet of glass to show us what sound vibrations do.  But he couldn't get a note bowing the edge of the glass, and had to get the music teacher to come up and do it.

Ha.  Retsina is not my favorite.  By far.  Rosin does work for me, though.  I like the smell of the rosin (deep dark secret for me).

Are you a Rosin Eating Zombie From Outer Space? (youtu.be/mABE51BQii4 – Gotta love that symphony!) I agree, though, it smells nice. drooling
