It's always nice to try something before buying it, even if you know that Skip It's gonna be the balls regardless. Letting you test all kinds of wine before committing to a whole bottle, TastingRoom.
Just now shipping their blessedly fermented wares to GA, Room's a try-before-you-fully-buy wine e-shop service that'll ship a pre-curated six-mini-bottle flight of vino, letting you decide for yourself if it's your style before purchasing the big bottle, because "it's your taste that counts", unless of course you just raved about Grown Ups for Dark Horizons. The minis're 50mL airplane-sizers of wine (almost 2x the normal vineyard tasting pour) that've been extracted from standard bottles using a zero-oxygen chamber; they're then shipped in cushioned boxes with a menu on the inside cover and winemaker-provided tasting notes, which hopefully don't make yours sound like they're gonna B flat. They've got various "Taste Adventure" sampler groups, broken down into CA locations (Napa, Sonoma), grapes (Pinot Noir, Chardonnay), and even a "Wines for Cheese Lovers" setup created to accompany three offerings from NorCal's Cowgirl Creamery: Mt Tam (like "white mushrooms"), a triple cream Red Hawk, and Devil's Gulch, which's dusted with pepper flakes, which Mr. Johnson does only when he has a really good excuse. Like Jeff Hostetler just called.
You can also get educated via wine questions/ answers/ facts du jour, a pairing widget to help pick the right one for a specific meal, and helpful articles like "Six Tips For Ordering Wine Online", and one on corks v. screwtops called "Topping It Off" -- which, if you already have a Skip-It, can only be accomplished with a bomb-ass Lite Brite.
