Don't Swallow in Utah!

As things are heating up for the Poster Unveiling & Wine vs Brew Tasting, I thought a little wine tasting etiquette might be good. So after a little research, it was interesting to find that in Utah, wine used at wine tastings MUST NOT BE SWALLOWED! Which poses the problem, where exactly do you put it after some momentary swirling in your mouth. The idea of spitting it into your glass seems just a bit gross, even with rinsing. And I can't speak for you, but no way would this Lentil Lady spit into a bucket in front of people. How gauche!

So I plan to solve that for our guests on June 9th. Here in Pullman Washington it is legal to swallow. So simply rinse your glass, empty it into one of our lovely buckets and move on to the next.
Happy tasting!
