An initiative to list the percentage of alcohol in each drink on a restaurant's wine list has been welcomed by Jersey's medical officer.
Dr Susan Turnbull said it can be difficult to know how much alcohol is in each drink.
The Jersey Pottery company has published the information in its restaurants to help customers monitor how much they consume.
Dr Turnbull said the initiative encouraged responsible drinking.
"You can drink more than a woman's daily allowance in a large glass of wine... if people don't realise that already I think it's time they did. This is a really good move in that direction," Dr Turnbull said.
The States of Jersey said men should not exceed three to four units and women two to three units per day on a regular basis.
One unit is equal to 25ml measure of spirit, one 125ml glass of wine at 8% alcohol by volume (abv) or half a pint of ordinary strength beer, lager or cider, the States added.
