Do tip your pourer! They not only served you, but they explained the wine each wine in detail and kept you company throughout your entire tasting experience; don’t you think they earned it? How much? Well, that is up to you, a standard tip is generally a couple of bucks. – Thanks!
Don’t give pourers tips like: “you should go to college!” – Ok, so here is something that really gets on my nerves… and I might have to blog this separately later. But just because we work in a tasting room, doesn’t mean that we don’t know jack shit. It doesn’t mean that we don’t have some other source of income. It doesn’t mean that we aren’t educated. Get what I am saying? Stop being condescending and presumptuous.
Hope you have a happy holiday this week and if you are out wine tasting remember to be safe!
