Craving Cabernet? Gotta get that Gewürztraminer in a hurry? Try a do-it-yourself wine vending machine.
Pennsylvania's Liquor Control Board unveiled a wine kiosk at a Giant grocery store in Susquehanna Township on Wednesday and another at a Wegman's market in Silver Spring Township.
The machines operate from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. every day but Sunday and are fitted with an ID scanner and Breathalyzer to thwart attempts by the underaged and overserved.

Simply fabulous. This article ages like fine wine.
I just can't get my mind off this article for almost three years. It's like groundhog day every day for me.
Still an amazing article. I've come out of the closet since my first reading.
I just read this article again. Totally amazing. Wine in a machine. Wow, next thing you know, we'll be able to get DVD's from a machine.
I don't get it.
It's like I always say, "Life is a Cabernet"...
I live in PA & I like wine. I think this is a good idea.
I've seen this type of vending machine at the Central Terminal Station in Rome six years ago, actually one has to choose the wine, pay at the counter, which then the machine will be turned on for automatic dispensing. This is good since the wine is kept at a right temperature, together with argon to keep the wine fresh.
I don't see what the big deal is, there are liquor stores with drive through windows. When I was in England they had a vending machine that dispensed liquor in the hotel hallway. It all boils down to personal responsibility.
this is to buy an entire bottle or by the glass? they've had "by the glass" wine kiosks around here in chicago, but buying a bottle out front of a store would indeed be pretty revolutionary!
but rly think ur out sumwhere at night ....
u want mroe to drink but lcbo is closed .... what todo

They have these vending machines all over Europe. It's about time the US caught on.
When I was in the Navy and stationed at NTC San Diego, we had a soft drink vending machine that was stocked with various brands of beer instead. It was located in the laundry facility. We could go there on the weekends, start a load of laundry, shoot some pool, play some video games, and drink a few beers. It made the chore of doing laundry a lot more bearable. That was back in 1980. I wonder how long it lasted before the politically-correct idiots got rid of it...
WIll this be large enough to vend box wine? IF so, count me in....and please place it near the RedBox movie rental.
of course why not, theres nothing evil about a vending machine with alcohol. apart from machines not offering opinions but other countries have plenty of these with beer as well. but i would still expect to hear 'oh no, not alcohol, our kids could drink it!', this after all is america
Its sad we've got to that point. Back in the day if you got pulled over drinking and driving they made you pour your beer out or made you sleep it off. Now everything is so strict its just insane. I just wish everyone would stop and realize that kids and people can get ahold of anything they want, including illegal substances.
