Grape stomping is a necessary cruelty, like leashing children in public or culling a population of angry mountain goats with even angrier mountain goats. Introduce new flavors to your palate's ecosystem with today's deal: for $10, you get $20 of wine at Taste Wine Bar in Midtown.
Taste Wine Bar provides oenophiles with a variety of wines in a relaxed atmosphere. Both the bar and shop's menus feature unique listings and change seasonally, much like the shape of the moon, which usually resembles a large maple leaf by the time autumn rolls around. Popular bottles from the shop include the Black shiraz ($24.99) and Arabella chardonnay ($10.99), while many aficionados appreciate the Silver Oak cabernet ($115.99) in pricier stead. At the bar, glasses of house wine (Salmon Creek, $6),14 Hands ($9) or Ramey or Rombauer ($15) come in cabernet, chardonnay, and merlot. Taste also offers beers and mixed drinks for the grape-averse.
Within the confines of Taste's softly lit, dark-wood interior, patrons can lounge on leather sofas or sit at the bar and admire the mixing staff's incredible mastery of the pluperfect tense. Taste frequently hosts local musicians and stays open late on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays, allowing patrons to enjoy distinguishing terpenes from esters through to the wee hours.
