DO take your recharged glass back to the center of the aisle and let the people lined up behind you get through to the front of the booth to a get some wine and ask their question, too. Scan your environment.

DON'T wear any perfume or after shave lotion, hair products or, generally, anything that smells into the tasting room. We are there to smell the wine not you. 

DO take advantage of the on-site liquor store and have your purchases shipped free of charge to your neighbourhood liquor store for pick-up the following week. 

DON'T even think about driving home. Take advantage of the BC Liquor Stores' Get Home Safe booth, located outside the Festival Wine Shop, and pick up a complimentary single zone transit ticket Consider taking a taxi or transit, or walk. Just don't drink and drive.
