Stags are not set to swap a pint for a pinot grigio any time soon.
British blokes enjoy a tipple indoors with the girlfriend but they draw the line a drinking vino down the pub.
A study of 1,500 adults revealed that only one in four guys will drink wine on a night out with male mates or colleagues.
The results also showed that men are more than happy to splash out out on wine when having friends over for dinner.
But beer remains the drink of choice for the overwhelming majority of stag dos.
Hens, of course, don’t feel the same. British women are happy to drink wine in the pub and fewer than one in five women said they chose wine to create a talking point.
The study also shows that we now think little of spending more than £10 on a bottle of wine if it will create the right impression.
A spokesman for Côtes du Rhône wines, which commissioned the report, said: “A large number of British blokes now say they enjoy a glass of wine when in their own home, but the majority still swap their Paris goblet for a pint pot, or order a spirit and mixer when out with friends in the pub, at a party or in a restaurant.
“Just a small number of men drink a glass of wine when down the pub. At parties the number increases slightly, and in a restaurant than figure rises to just over half.”
