The Urban Grape

You can try on clothes before you buy—so why not taste bottles of wine beforehand, too? At the Urban Grape, an Enomatic tasting machine dispenses samples of 16 wines on demand. And because the many wines on offer here are organized by their common characteristics—from the lightest bodied to the heaviest—once you find the perfect fit, it’ll be easy to discover other bottles just like it.
