A Note about Spitting

When tasting through a long series of alcoholic beverages, it is considered in good taste to spit out one's wine into a designated "Spit cup", or "Spit bucket".

Professionals consider the alternative of swallowing each sample tasted, as leading to their consuming too much alcohol, much too quickly, and that would lead to them having impaired judgement and other less than desirable effects for that environment.

However, after the tasting portion of the evening has been completed, and the event has become less formal, social drinking is usually considered acceptable.
