We went to Rustico on 25 Aug 12 while touring 8 other wineries in the area that day. I was a very cute building and I had read all the reviews and they sounded great. When we got there the group ahead of us was laughing and having a great time with the server. They asked us to wait for 10 minutes to start a new tasting. We happily waited while another couple came in and waited with us. About 20 minutes later we started our tasting but the server was not as enthusiastic with us. My husband and I tasted and bought a bottle of wine. The other couple (which were two ladies) looked around while we were paying. When they went to pay for their bottle of wine they were told that they also had to pay a $5 tasting fee for the person that didn't buy the wine. My husband and I only bought one bottle of wine and two of us tasted and we didn't have to pay a tasting fee for the other person.???? All in all the experience was not as good as I expected based on the trip advisor reviews. Maybe just a bad day?
