Corkage Etiquette

I recently hosted a dinner at a restaurant owned by an acquaintance and I received corkage waivers for a table of 6. One of the guests brought 4 bottles of wine in different vintages with the intention of having a vertical tasting. Considering the corkage fees were waived for all 4 bottles I insisted we use the same glasses which caused a bit of an disagreement. However, I did not budge and it got somewhat uncomfortable. The thought of the table being filled with 24 wine glasses seemed ridiculous and ungrateful.

I would love to hear some of your opinions on this subject. How would you have handled it?
