You give them your credit card, and they give you a plastic card which allows you to dispense wine in varying amounts. Each time you do this it adds however much it says to your tab. Most wine seems to cost around $3 for the minimum amount, very small but enough for a tasting, with a maximum $35 for Grange Hermitage which was retailing for over $1000 a bottle. This was probably our only chance to afford Grange Hermitage and at that price not bad value so we tried it (far too young in the bottle).
After about 10 wines I had pretty much reached my limit. It would have been good to see a somewhat wider range, as a few slots had no bottle or the bottle was empty. It is a little overpriced, as after all they are hoping you will buy a whole bottle, so if they made less profit on the tasting you might try more wines. We also compared prices with the bottle shop round the corner, some were the same price but some were significantly more expensive.
All in all an interesting experience and worth doing.
