Exceptions to the rules on bringing wine to someone's home?

Midlife | | Nov 27, 2009 11:49 AM

The most recent issue of Food & Wine has an article in it that makes multiple references to the high expectation of people bringing wine to someone's home that it be opened and served at that event. Admittedly this article seems to be from the perspective of a rather high level of wine expertise for all involved, but I think posts here (as well as general consensus) would disagree with that position.................. saying the wine is a gift and opening it is at the option of the host.....ALWAYS.

So............... ABSENT any prior history or understanding between the guests and the host as to what should happen to the wine.................... is this article tongue-in-cheek, or do we really buy that the etiquette changes at the 'geek' or 'connoisseur' level?
