Drinking a glass of wine in a simple room is not the same experience as sipping exact one under a canopy of stars. What defines the taste of any wine is the when and where you are sipping it.

This concept may anger the more logical minded members of the wine industry but several companies are already investing in wine tasting rooms. These tasting rooms offer a relaxed vibe and elegant window views of beautiful locales and are increasingly becoming part of big brewers’ calling cards.

The practice of making these structures to lure in possible customers have been started by newer wine industries belonging to Chile and Argentina and several states like Michigan in the United States for the American continent. In Europe, New Zealand and Austria have these rooms to lure in buyers. These architecturally elegant and scenery centered rooms invites the tasters to focus on their senses and the taste the wines provide.

Tipping
There is no need to tip taxi drivers unless they have been particularly helpful, but it is customary to round the fare up to the nearest peso, especially if the difference is nominal. The standard tipping practice of 10% is the norm in restaurants, as it is generally held that if you can afford to eat out in the city you can afford to leave a good tip. Unlike other countries most restaurants here will not be able to accept tips left on your credit card, so make sure you always carry some change for this purpose. Porters in the larger hotels may expect a tip, but this is not a common practice so don’t worry too much about it unless you feel your porter has been particularly attentive.
