Our Story: Enjoying a glass of wine in the Short North may not be new to you, but your experience at Tastings – A Wine Experience will be. Opened in May of 2017, Tastings offers guests an opportunity to have just that, a wine experience. This one-of-a-kind concept allows guests to pre-fill a tasting card with any amount of money you desire and mingle around the wine stations to sample a 2-ounce taste, 4-ounce pour or 6-ounce glass of wine.
Wines are grouped by regions or varietals so that it is easy for you to find a wine or venture out and explore something unique to you. “Our Wine Guides are available to help you discover a wine that you may have never considered based on tastes you enjoy,” says Ross Bailey, owner of Tastings – A Wine Experience. “We feature the largest selection of wines by-the-glass in the city, with several wines from hard to find producers”
If you find a wine that you love, everything is available for carry-out purchase at the state minimum and many wines are exclusive to Tastings. You won’t find the same wines at Tastings that you will find at the large, chain stores. “We showcase wines from careful, dedicated, responsible producers. Stewards of the land – not mass producers,” adds Ross.
“The wines are a beautiful expression of the place they came from, but the most enjoyable aspect of wine is who you share it with. That’s the true wine experience.” The wine list is constantly rotating to keep things fresh and to allow frequent guests to enjoy new selections with each visit.
In addition to wine, Tastings offers a full bar and a food menu that satisfies a nibbler or a guest looking for a great meal. “My family and I opened our first location in Indianapolis in 2009 and we truly felt the Tastings concept would be a great addition to Columbus’ Short North area,” says Ross. “It’s hard not to fall in love with the Short North community when we are surrounded by so many other amazing small businesses and great neighbors.”
Whether you are enjoying a date night, girl’s night out, a wine tasting event with a group or celebrating something special. Tastings offers the option to host any number of gatherings.
