The Perfect Wine Pour

Business 2.0 has this article about the Enoround automatic wine dispenser at VinoVenue in San Francisco.  More information from the article:

Each of VinoVenue's $20,000 Enoround carousels holds 16 bottles, and above each spout is an LED displaying the price per pour. Customers use smart cards to pay for their drinks. As the dispenser fills a glass, it replaces the lost liquid in the bottle with argon, an inert gas that seals the remaining wine against oxidation. That innovation preserves even white wine for as long as two months and allows VinoVenue to serve more than 110 vintages by the glass -- about three times the offerings of most wine bars.
