Buying Wine - Pet Peeves

vinhotinto75 | Feb 8, 2009 07:23 PM

Probably like many people on this board, I spend quite a bit of time and money drinking, tasting, reading, and enjoying wine and gastronomy.

Earlier today I purchased a bottle of wine I have never seen in a retail store and encountered something that really annoys me: a price tag on the front of the bottle above the label. Yes, I know in the grand scheme of things that it will not alter the taste of the wine and there are indeed tons of things I should be concerned about in this world, yet this really bothers me since it often is a pain to remove and the stickiness never quite comes off.

I'm sure we all have our Pet Peeves when buying wine at a variety of establishments, so I wanted to see what bothers other people? Storage? Temperature? Uniformed staff? Yes, I'm a wine geek and even comment on stemware when I see people drinking on TV, but I suppose everybody has a hobby...
