    The "legs" of a glass of wine reflect onto the side of a fermenting tank at Artesa Winery in Napa, California.

    Wine lovers will soon find one more reason to head to West Hartford after work with a couple friends.

    Uncorked, a wine-tasting bistro, will open this spring in Blue Back Square. But this will not be your average wine bar. They hope to open in mid-May. One of the interesting features of Uncorked is the wine station technology.

    Wine will be available in portions as small as 1 oz, so you can go for a tasting to learn what you like. Uncorked will also serve 3 oz. and 6 oz. portions, so you can kick back, enjoy some vino and socialize with your friends. Customers will get a smart card to keep track of your choices. 

    With 68 varieties -- including fine “prized” wines -- it seems everyone from the discriminating oenophile to the newbie could find something here.

    “Uncorked will offer 68 wines by the glass, on demand, every day – which is hard to find in a restaurant or wine bar as it is,” Dave Rudman, manager of Uncorked, said in a news release.

    Of course, with all that wine, Uncorked will also serve food that pairs well with wine -- cheeses, chocolates, meats, salads and tapas.

    The bistro will open at 63 Memorial Road in Blue Back Square. Cheers!
