Fun Evening Out - Thoroughly Enjoyed It

Visited Tastings with a friend 2 weeks ago while traveling through Indianapolis. Just so happens it was her birthday so was looking for something unique to do. Participated in the wine tasting so we sat at the bar. The actual wine wasn't necessarily all that great but the experience made up for... read more

We appreciated paying a single fee to choose from a selections of wines to taste. It was a great start to our anniversary weekend.

I would like to give them a higher rating but we felt it was overpriced for what you really got. The concept is fun though - buy a plastic 'credit type card' & go taste wine that you want. We ordered a couple of appetizers that turned out very small.... :(

One of my favorite places to go in the city. You will drink a lot of delicious wine so make sure you have a designated driver. I love that you can taste lots of different styles and read the tasting notes, you really get to figure out what you like and dont like. Great experience and the staff is very... More

I had high expectations and if you are up for trying a broad range of wines you are at the right place! A lot of great wines to choose from. The wines are way better then their cocktails. You can also have food, but I think it is better to focus on the wine and have the food somewhere else.... More

If you love wine or want to expand your wine palate this is the place to go. It has very sized pours and different price points. So if you always wanted to try and Syrah but didn't want to pay for a whole glass you can pay $2-$3 pour a 1oz pour to try it. They say the more expensive... More

This place is WAY over priced. Great selection! But ridiculous! I wasn't about to spend $34.00 on a glass of wine to sit on an uncomfortable bar type stool that was too high at a small round table that looked like it should be in a burger joint. The other places to sit consisted of 4 couches that were took... More
