The Tasting Room - Chevy Chase

Just opened, Boxwood Winery's third retail shop/bar (other locations in Reston and Middleburg) is a sleek, window-filled, rack-lined cubby, serving up nibbles (from local Krishon Chocolates to "Drunken Goat" cheese plates), 5 Boxcar varietals, and 20+ other rotating bottles. Booze is dispensed in 1-, 3-, or 5oz pours from two temp-regulating machines, which can be operated by the customer via a credit-card-like "Eno-Card" -- so futuristic, it's like Close Encounters of the Third Vine.
