Drink what you love! Wine is subjective. Don’t be afraid to try new and exciting grape varietals. You will be surprised by what you’ll come to enjoy.
 
Remember to listen to your guests. Ultimately, you’re trying to find a wine that they’ll love—not serving them one based on your preferences.
 
Always be gracious and humble. When dealing with individuals that don’t know as much as you, remember that we’re all students of wine. You’re not there to impress them. You’re there to excite their palates.
 
Always be professional. Take notes and be courteous to other professionals. We are all working hard every day, and you never know when you’re going to need a favor.
