Jay, have your client come to it, I like the blind theme and would like to keep it as that since it would be more fun. I guess I should start a list.

Glass Sales at the Tasting Room?

Another thing to think about is who is going to be doing the pouring. Seems simple enough but I believe that for flights it is about 3oz of a pour. You need to stick to this otherwise you are giving away excess wine, which over time adds up.

Are you looking for per day, per week, per month etc??? I do not think that there is a clear cut formula except one to determine break even costs etc. If you are trying to determine that then you need to also determine what your fixed costs are first.
