Are you supposed to spit out wine at wine tasting?

Seasoned sippers know it's essential to expectorate when tasting a whole bunch of wine. If you swirl your glass, take a sniff, sip, swish, and then spit, you're still going to get a sense of the wine. You taste the wine. It's a wine tasting, after all, not an all-you-can-drink liquid buffet.

Do you tip at Napa wine tastings?

In Napa, these tastings will range from $25 – $50 per person. If you're paying full price for the tasting and you don't buy wine, a tip isn't expected but is sure appreciated. This is especially the case if your server goes above and beyond. Amount-wise $5-$10 per couple is a nice range.
