Great concept! You provide your ID then pay for a pre-paid card to insert into the wine dispensers. Large variety of wines at various price points. You can read the wine description, select your wine then decide if you want a taste, 1/2 glass or full glass (the price is indicated for each). The transaction is deducted from your card. You can keep using the pre-paid card until it runs out of money. You can add more money to the card or call it a night. They also offer a large selection of beer and mixed drinks but the wine is the real draw here.

The cheese offered with the cheese plates is of high quality. The meat and cheese tray was heavy on the cheese and light on the meat but that's the only thing even sort of negative thing I can say about the place.

The hostess said that they also offer wine and painting nights. Could be fun!

Definitely recommend this wine bar!

We went with a large group - we called ahead to let them know, like days ahead. There was not problem with our group being seated and the wines had a price point for everyone. The issue? Not a lot of staff on hand to refill the bottles as they went empty - very early into our event.
There is so much that is wonderful about this place, just needed more staff on a Saturday evening.

If you're looking to try a ton of different wines and don't care to buy entire bottles.. this is your place. They have 40 different kinds of wines on tap, as well as small bites. Staff is super friendly and helpful as well! Highly recommend this!

Della Viti started in Ames and opened a second location in the East Village in Des Moines. I have a friend named Josh who has worked at both locations. You go in and open an account and put money in your account. Then you can take a glass and you select a type of wine to sample. When you finish your sample, you can get another glass of the same wine or try a different kind of wine. Della Viti has big wine dispenser machines that holds a line of wine bottles and it pumps wine out of a bottle to dispense one glass at a time. There is a huge variety of all kinds of wine. The big advantage is if you want to sample one glass of a very expensive, rare wine. You can sample several different very expensive wines. The wine bar is quiet so you can talk with friends as you have a meeting or just visit with a girlfriend or buddy. There are common wines available so you can get a glass of red or white wine for a cheap price if you just want to enjoy your visit and not spend a lot of money. There are snack available to purchase if you want a salty or healthy something to eat. You have lots of choices. I am not a big wine drinker but I have enjoyed a couple of visits to this wine bar. It is the only wine bar I have ever visited so I have nothing to compare it to.

Great place to try new wines without buying a bottle. Cozy and relaxing atmosphere. Able to buy wines by the sip, or the glass. Plus a full bar for those non-wine drinkers

Looking for a date night and a change of pace? This is a really good place to check out. You'll find an awesome collection of wines from all over and a really cool and relaxed spot, usually filled with some interesting people! The meat and cheese plates are really good but make sure you pace yourself because this isn't the cheap stuff. You'll start to feel it pretty quickly!

Unique way to try a bunch of different wines. Also has premier liquors (9 different scotches included) and 40 different craft beers. Best of all -- they will let you bring in your own food!

Staff is super helpful and knowledgeable. Very chill location -- Great place to hang out with friends, go on a date etc.

This little wine bar is laid back and fun. You prepay at the front (as much as you want) to sample different wines. They give you a little card and then you can go to the tasting area and grab a glass. You insert your card, select the wine you want to try and it pours it for you. Each wine has a description and is placed in a category (fruit and bold, light and crisp, etc.) You can add money to your card as you go if you want. The whole experience was fun and relaxed. They help explain things and answer questions. I also love that they let you bring in desserts from another restaurant if you want to snack while you enjoy their wine. Very fun!

Prepay for your wine then give many types a try. Fun for couples or small groups on a weekend evening.
