Not sure if it's just the water here in SoCal, but anyone notice a light cloudy film at the bottom of the bowl after machine washing? Wonder if it's just the calcium. But this only happens to my Grassl, not GGG or Zalto.

100% of the time everyone brings a bottle to share. Also gives me a chance to open something of mine that I've been meaning to open. We may or may not start with a cocktail beforehand. Me personally would glance at the wine list to see what the restaurant carries, but we rarely order anything.
