The opportunity to sample many different wines to expand your tastes is such a fabulous idea!! I don't know why no one has done this before. After all, who doesn't want to try a few really fine wines but stopped short of buying a bottle because of the price tag? For just a few bucks, you can do just that; find out if they're really "all that"! Love the place!!

Lots of fun. Went with girlfriends and we had lots of wine. Wish there were more chairs! The waitress was really helpful.

I visited Half Cork'd on a recent Saturday evening, and my opinion of it is that it is a wonderful addition to Gainesville. The concept of being able to serve yourself a one, three, or six ounce tasting of wine is great. The atmosphere is very relaxing and conducive to conversation. My only recommendation is perhaps have a greater selection of wines, and though small plates are offered, perhaps nuts or crackers on the tables.

One of my favorite places in Gainesville. The wine selection is great and there are always a few craft beers on tap. The service is consistently solid.

Such a great find and what a cool idea for wine samplings. Before I went I wasn't much for the idea of wine being "dispensed" in my glass, however upon going and experiencing it was great fun with my girlfriends. I would say it's in the category of "boutique wine bar", great for small gatherings and girls night out. Upscale with simple yet shique decor, quite a few wine selections priced low to high in the whites and reds, however they have a very simple and small selection for appetizers/tapas. To purchase wine from the "taps", you purchase a $5 wine card and then add your amount to that, then go to each dispenser and choose which wines you'd like to try. You can really try some great wines from different regions at a fraction of the price of buying a whole glass elsewhere. Check it out!
