Wine Tasting Etiquette (sharing a pour ok?)

Hi,

I plan to spend a few days in the wine country (as per other posts I have made) with two others. I am not used to paying for tasting (but don't mind too much, although it may add up if my record of 15 in a day in New Zealand is matched) but was unsure of the rules as to if the designated driver of the day wanted to try a small amount is it ok to pass a glass to them, or to share a pour? Are pours generous (I have heard they are)? I am not going to get drunk in anyway, I want to try the wines, so large pours will be wasted through tipping away if can't share etc.

Thanks, again, in advance
