More wine 4 dummies, but how bout this catchy handle: Wine’tastic! (the excl point's part of the name.) Half retail, half wine bar, Wine’tastic! mimics best cellars' emphasis on "value". But it pushes its rep as a place where you can taste before you buy (tho it appears that you can taste not EVERYTHING, just 50-or-so bottles, which is still good). It has what it calls a "Tuscan-style" lounge area w/ high-def TV where you can siddown & drink what you bought (or take it home). They also have food -- cheez, fruit, bread, desserts. Look for the fancy equipment that dispenses wine w/ an espresso-machine steam wand gizmo.
