Wine, love it. Especially with friends.
Tried a new spot the other day with some friends, and we all got to taste as many kinds of wine as we wanted. The place? Tastings, A Wine Experience at 909 S. Main St., in Grapevine.
Here’s how it works…you put whatever amount of money on a little plastic card they give you. Then, card in hand, you peruse the bottles of wine lining the wall. Descriptions displayed with the bottles help you narrow your selection, and so do the prices. Insert the card, and then choose a quarter glass, a half glass or a full glass of any wine. The amount you sample is deducted from the pre-paid amount loaded on the plastic.
Clever idea and part of a franchise with five stores in the U.S. and a sixth one in the works. We had a great time tasting wine, and the noshes were good, too.
Oh, and there’s happy hour, too. 4 to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday. Check www.awineexperience.comÂ for more info.
