Yes, we all have stereotypes in our minds about what certain groups of foreigners are like. We Brits are seen as shy creatures with bad teeth, the Americans as brash and the Australians, well, certainly, they're thought to like their drink, are they not?

An all-in-one plastic wine bottle and cup has been produced by Australia's Hardy Wine Company, the country's largest wine producer.

The "Shuttle" bottle, which holds one glass of wine, has a detachable plastic container at the top.

"It's portable (and) it means you only need to buy one product to enjoy a glass of wine," Miriam Leenders, Hardy Wine Company Global Marketing Manager, told Reuters.

Sometimes these stereotypes just get confirmed, don't they? And plastic? For wine?
