Default Is the 15% gratuity already added in dining room for indiv bottles of wine ordered?

In the past when I have ordered bottles of wine in the main dining room I have always added a tip onto the tab. Was I over tipping? Is the charge 15% already added? Whatr do other people do?

I know when I order a glass of wine the %15 is added to that. Not sure about a bottle, but my guess would be yes.

When you order a bottle of wine, the listed price is before the 15% gratuity, but the final bill you sign has that gratuity added to the total.

Donna & kukki thanks for the info. I have always wondered about this and it appears that I was over tipping 15%+15%.
