Paying homage to Old World wine cellars, WineStyles Peoria pleases palates with a rotating selection of up to 150 wines from around the world, stored in arched cubbyholes along the wall. During tastings, wine whizzes fill glasses with various shades of nectar, which duos or quartets can smell, taste, and dab over razor burn. Afterwards, newly educated guests can purchase some of the store’s various bottles of wine, including the bold Educated Guess cabernet sauvignon ($19.99), the sweet Frisk riesling ($11.99), and the bright and fruity Isabel Mondavi deep rose ($15.99). During a private tasting party, groups of up to 10 people flock around a table to guzzle down spirited glasses of grape juice. Experienced staff members dole out sips from five different bottles of wine, each containing information on its characteristics as well as tips for food pairing and baseball-bat corking.
