    How did everyone respond to the wine tipping conversation? I have to admit I always just tip on the food/bev total and never thought to tip differently on the wine (bottles). Any other tipping rules/practices out there?

    Rules, i would be hard pressed to find. I try to tip based more on the effort involved that the cost of the wines involved.
