Q&A Thurs: How to leave A tasting room politely without buying?
Is there a good way to leave a tasting room without buying any wine so the person who spent all that time pouring and talking to you doesn’t feel insulted?
Not really. However, this has worked for my wife and I: First, she tugs on my ear to let me know we are going to put the "Wallet Get-Away". Then, she says to me, "honey, I left my wallet in the car." She leaves. I wait five minutes. Then I say, "Where is she? Excuse me." I go to the car to "look for her". Then we drive like a bat out of hell.
Does that help?
