“More than a Wine Bar”
Reviewed 25 November 2013

The idea here is a great one. If you would like to try different wines. You can pick them yourself without needing a wait person or bar tender using their automated wine dispensers. Or you can use one of their always pleasant wait staff. Inexpensive parking is available across the street at the Circle City Mail. Tastings also has a great menu from small pizza's to other various sandwiches etc. They even have live music some nights.

“Nice place! Ideal to spend a cozy and relaxing evening with friends!”
Reviewed 20 November 2013

Very nice wine bar & tapas. While you take a prepaid card and choose among a very good selection of wines, you can enjoy the place and some nice food for your dinner or simply as aperitive. Live music and good atmosphere.

“Wonderful concept! Expensive”
Reviewed 6 November 2013 via mobile

If you're willing to cough up some Cha-Ching, this place is a lot of fun! So many wines to taste-just like a kid in a candy store. Nice service. Excellent rotating selection of wine

“Neat but expensive”
Reviewed 27 October 2013

My boyfriend and I stopped in here on a Saturday afternoon in late October. As others have already noted, there are wine dispensors and you serve yourself. We tried 5 of their 104 different wine selections. All 5 of them were red wines and all of them were excellent. Most of the ones we tried were $2.50-$4 per taste. There are some that are $11+ for a taste. I think that's a little pricy for a 2 ounce taste but that's just my personal opinion. We didn't eat any of the food but what we saw come by our table looked and smelled good. If you are looking for a different kind of wine tasting experience this is the place to try!

“Interesting, unique and relaxed all at the same time.”
Reviewed 16 September 2013

If you are looking for a relaxing atmosphere with a cool do it yourself concept and a wine tasting experience, you will love this place. They are laid back, yopu prepay a debit card and off you go, tasting wines byt the 2 oz's. If you want food they have small but hearty apps to select from. I ahd the spinach and artichoke dip-very good!! You can sit indoors or outside. I really relaxed here, very nice!
