BOYSTOWN — Technology is a wonderful thing — particularly when it helps you drink more wine.

Paired Wine, 3325 N. Halsted St., has some shiny new machines that do just that, offering customers 3-ounce samples and providing customized advice on which pairs best with their next meal.

Owner Joseph Giannini has been chasing down the high-tech Enomatic machines since September 2014, when he asked neighbors to support Paired Wine getting the licenses needed to offer more to drink on-premises than three 1-ounce tastings.

The four Enomatic machines let customers sample 16 bottles of wine in half-glass servings. Before throwing down $55 for a bottle of wine you might hate, try some for $7.50. The samples range from $3-$8 as Paired rotates its selection.
