^^^^Mercury is not wet because the meniscus curves down? What are you? some kind of anarchist fascist nazi?

contact angle of water droplets is lower, which can be accomplished by including things like surfactants. Alternatively, you can increase the contact angle through treatments that renders the surface hydrophobic so the water beads up on it. Fluorination is the classic one, and the basis for Scotchgard.
so in conclusion, water is not "wet". wetness is a function of the interaction between the liquid and the surface that is being contacted
