The weather on "Wine Saturday" wasn't friendly to country drivers on icy roads, so the Wine Team went urban upscale in Reston, VA. We visited the "Tasting Room" wine bar in Reston Town Center where a wide variety of international vintages are offered as well as a special tasting of Virginia wines from Boxwood Winery. Boxwood served only reds and they were excellent. Pictured here is a wine dispenser which can serve from a circular array of bottles each fitted into its own holder with spout. It's large, shiny, and looks somewhat agricultural, though the original vineyard is quite a way from Reston.
