Podcast #23 – Wineshop Tasting Fees and SYLR Rover ’07

So you’ve been traveling all over trying to find your favorite winery and you finally pull into the parking lot on a hot day. You’ve planned on trying everything they have to offer and buy almost as much to stock up for the year. You head in to the tasting room where you see a sign that says “Tasting Fee $5”. Why do some wineries now charge for something that had previously been free? What happens to that money? Do you get it back if you buy wine? We’ll talk about why more wineries are starting to charge a fee and where that money might be going. We’ll also be tasting a shiraz/viognier blend from See Ya Later Ranch called Rover.
