Bridge, you seem to be drinking wine to "get high" from its alcohol content, as opposed to enjoying a wine's aromas and flavors as a complement to food. We don't consider "getting high" to be a worthy goal of wine consumption, so if you're looking for a technique to modulate inebriation with water, you're probably not going to get a whole lot of advice on that subject here.

sorry, i think i was out of context when i used the word "high"..i am a wine drinker for years and i do not drink "only" to get the feeling of being relaxed and settled in my own way...i do not want the fans here to get the wrong idea and i am glad you straightened it out for me..sometimes my words are wrong..i love red wine for all the qualities it is noted for and i asked the question about water because i needed to know if it was healthier for the liver to drink water while drinking red wine or after... i thank you for your answer to my question...dan
