A local wine shop does a free tasting every Friday and Saturday. I have been going in just about every Friday and Saturday for their tastings for some time now, and typically buy atleast one bottle of something in the store every time I go. This Friday's wine is Italian and Spain, which I haven't really tasted much of and am interested. The Saturday tastings are not posted online because they put together the Saturday tasting themselves, and are typically what would be considered the classics in wine. Well, I have blown my wine budget for the week because I have two 6 gallon carboys of wine to bottle and a 5 gallon carboy of mead to bottle. That would be about 6 cases of wine. I had to buy a few cases of bottles, so there went the wine budget. If you attend a free wine tasting at the local shop, do you feel obligated to buy something?
