Wine Tasting in SF – Hi-Tech

From Wired:

At the wine stations, organized by varietal, one then inserts the card into a slot, places the glass under a stainless steel spout, and presses the button above the bottle of choice.

The machine deducts money from the card, drop by drop, as it shoots out a precise 1-inch pour.

The machines deduct anywhere from $1 for a few sips of an $8 bottle of 2003 Tres Ojos Old Vines Garnacha to $28 for an ounce of the $300 1997 Sauternes from France’s famous Chateau d’Yquem.
