I absolutely believe that tipping your wine host/hostess is appropriate. Having worked in the industry, I know that the hardworking folks with smiles, knowledge and a bottle in their hand are doing everything to get you as excited about the wines as they are - for $12 an hour. One would be foolish to not recognize that an average Denny's employee is likely bringing in more income (not to denigrate Denny's employees by any means). If a wine steward gets you feeling the rush of history, fruit and the passion going into a wine that demands you have some for yourself, reciprocation is in order. No question.
