Try $100 worth of SD26′s self serve wine bar with this $50 deal! – Buy before 2/15/2011! Never expires!
OK, we have a few trends heating up on the wine scene lately. Wines on tap, wines by the half of bottle and self-serve enomatic wine bars. The latter, you’ll find at Clo wine bar in Time Warner Center, the new Bar Basque in the Eventi Hotel and at SD26 (wine bar/ restaurant headed up by the owners of the late San Domenico fame).
The SD26 program allows you to buy a “tasting card” that allows you to buy wine at their front wine lounge in 1, 2, and 5 ounce pours, so you can try a wine before you commit to a full glass. Located in the mod lounge area, it makes 24 perfectly preserved vintages available for swillers to self-serve at their leisure. (Note: the prices of these pours might start at a few dollars for a 1 oz pour, but can soar pretty high for more premium options. Which is WHY this deal is SUCH a good one. You can sample wines you might not have considered before, with freedom.)
Thanks to Daily Candy for this deal: buy their Enomatic SmartCard now for $50 now and get $100 to use at your leisure. Because the other cool thing is you can use it when you want – without expiration – in their automatic wine dispensing machine.
