So, I’m sitting on the patio at one of my favorite wineries recently and I find myself eavesdropping on a conversation next to me (c’mon…don’t be all judgey. You know you have done it at some point and time….) and it goes something like this: Winery staff member to guests sitting on their patio tasting wine…”Would you like to try anything else?” Person #2…”Yes…I would like another taste of the Blend that you poured earlier.” Winery staff member…”Not a problem. Of all the various wines that you have enjoyed today, which ones can I ring up for you to purchase today?” Person #2…”Oh…we are still trying to decide what we are going to buy.”
Winery staff member goes back inside tasting bar…conversation continues..
Person #1….“I love it here. They don’t charge any fees and we get to drink as much as we want to!” Person #2 “yea…we couldn’t go to a restaurant this cheap. Let’s finish our lunch here and go to a couple more places for a few more “tastings” (note the snark in my tone when I put that word in italics) before we head home” followed by giggles and smiles.
