Tasting Room Ettiquete

When we get to go to a new tasting room it is usually really fun. What makes it not fun is when the guests are out of control, or they are rude and obnoxious. Here is a few things to think about when you go to a tasting.

  1. If you don’t want to taste just say No thank you. You don’t have to have an excuse.
  2. If you don’t like what you are tasting be discreet about it, don’t make a scene.
  3. Remember somebody took the time to make this for you, when you are rude about it, it hurts their feelings.
  4. Each person should get their own flights, sharing with 5 other people is ridiculous, not to mention really unsantitary.
  5. Don’t act like you are the know all of something you don’t know anything about, people see through that pretty quickly. 
  6. Don’t assume you won’t like something, so many times people tell me they would never drink moonshine and in the end, they leave with a bottle or a few bottles.
  7. Don’t assume something is not great just because the place where you are getting it is not that fancy.
  8. Don’t assume something is not fantastic because it didn’t cost a fortune and your first born.
  9. Tip the person that is pouring for you.  They are working hard to make sure you have a great time.
  10. Don’t act like you are dying when you take a sip, that goes back to bad manners and is just plain rude.
  11. There is a lot more but this is a good start, remember what your mamma said, If you can’t say something nice don’t say nothin at all.
  12. It is ok to add suggestions on what you might think would make it better. That is always welcomed. We want to the best product that we can get.
