How Much Do You Tip for a Bottle of Wine?

1920

There are still some great mysteries out there in our world.

For instance:

What exactly was the point of Stonehenge?

Really now, where are Jim Morrison and Elvis Presley hiding out?

And how much do you tip on a bottle of wine?

Ask 10 people you’ll get 10 different answers to all three questions. 

But after talking to a bunch of pros, there seems to be some underlying etiquette to the latter.

Look, in general, it takes a lot more work for the restaurant staff to make $1,000 worth of food than it does for the sommelier to go grab a $1,000 bottle of wine out of the cellar, remove the cork and pour it for you. 

So why does that require a 20 percent tip? Seems nuts right?

Well, maybe not.
