Store wine tastings etiquette: how often do you buy?

caputoOO | Mar 3, 2011 05:03 PM

I go to a wide range of wine tastings at stores that range from a few dollars to $50+. At many tastings (even the higher end ones) it is clear the store owner cannot be breaking even on what they charge for tasting. I frequently end up buying much more wine than I will ever drink, just to help the store owner.

I was wondering what code of ethics others follow. Buy a little, a lot, seldom, selective.....?
