I called this a yes. We broke a bottle in a winery parking lot. They actually helped clean it up and replaced it for free. I’m sure there were individual glasses that spilled, but I don’t have any stories for those.
At a tasting once, where the server handed me a glass with the first tasting pour in it, I fumbled it so badly I spilled some on both myself and the server. That was pretty embarrassing, and I felt like I had to assure the server I hadn’t had anything to drink yet that day! At least I didn’t break the glass.
My wife and I went to a “Grand Tasting” at a fancy lodge in Geneva, OH a few years ago. There were many rows of long tables and all the samples had been poured ahead of time, so there were 5 full glasses in front of each seat. There was assigned seating and we were in the very middle of one of these long tables. We were ushered in and shown to our seats but then told to get back up and help ourselves to some cheese, crackers, charcuterie, etc.
The rows between the tables were fairly narrow and the full glasses had been placed very close to the front edges of the tables. So, we got up to make our way to the snacks and as I shuffled down the row sideways to get out, my butt brushed against one or more of the glasses and I knocked 6 or 7 of them over in a domino effect, 2 or 3 of which broke. I was both embarrassed and upset that they had put the rows so close together and the glasses so close to the edge but nobody else knocked any over that I am aware of, so… my bad?
@ttboy23 I was, haha. Forgot about it (blocked it out?) even after viewing initial responses here but @worbx mentioned above not having been drinking yet when he knocked over a glass and that kind of kicked it in because Geneva, OH has a number of wineries and many of the attendees at this “Grand Tasting” had clearly been out drinking, errr, tasting most of the day, while we had not had even a sip.
There was apparently a bottle of 1973 Cuvaison zin that a friend of my parents’ dropped and my dad says he had this moment of debating whether or not glass slivers would be worth slurping what remained of it. (he decided not, but it took a minute).
