Seasoning the glass?

Had a fabulous meal at Osteria Mozza this past weekend but they did something that baffled us. We ordered a bottle of wine & they brought us each a glass with about a teaspoon of wine in it. Then she came with the bottle & poured a tasting amount in my friend's glass. At first we thought the teaspoon was for each of us to taste so were suprised when she then poured a reasonable amount and asked my friend to taste. I saw this done at the table next to us also so I asked their wine server what that was all about & he gave some mumbo jumbo about "seasoning the glass" but then also said something about the glasses getting dusty overnight. Huh? You are washing out glasses with my wine? Please someone shed some light on this. thanks
