Great for bringing on the plane. The will fit nicely in your little plastic bag and are small enough to qualify to get passed security.

So, for $40, you get less than one bottle of wine, and not enough of anything to pour a glass?

My girlfriend is really into wine. I'm clueless when it comes to wine. Her birthday is next month. Would this be a fun gift for her?

Looks like the MSRP is correct, worth about $30/each, so a solid discount.

Seems like a good holiday gift to have on hand in case you forget someone. Plus, you can always drink it yourself...on an airplane.

I did a tastingroom.com living social special last year, basically you ended up with two tasting kits of Napa cabs for ~ $30.

It was fun, the wines were good, BUT these bottles are TINY....50ML is about the smallest pour you will ever receive from the stingiest of wineries. That said, the samplers I had included two bottles of $85 cabs....or 100ML of a bottle of $85 cab, it was good, and I was happy.

This isn't a bad deal for some fun tasting a variety of nice wines.

Keep in mind 50ml is about a fifth of a cup (0.211338 cups to be precise).

My initial thought was what a fun possible treat / icebreaker on a flight, but i think Oz limits are 3.
What a shame.

The liquid limit is 3.4 ounce (100ml) so these are fine.

My mistake the Mil's work out to 1.6907 oz. So there a tad bigger than the airline bottle of alcohol.

The Stickybeak wine is listed as Syrah but the picture is Pinot Noir.
Assuming Syrah is correct since that is what tastingroom.com shows but can we get confirmation?

If you set the lights and music just right, and make sure to leave the room. The next day you will mysteriously end up with additional dolls that are 1/12.

When I saw the size of the bottles I was tempted to click away... but, then I looked at the picture of the miniature bottles in their box, and they just looked so adorable I think I'm going to have to go for this, plus I figure I can get two and me and a friend can have an at home tasting, and by the end we'll have each had a bit less than a bottle of wine, so we should be pretty nicely tipsy... though if we'll have any thoughts at all about the quality of each wine is questionable.

When you factor in the 14 dollars for shipping, it is an even bigger discount.

Actually, the mini bottles of liquor you get on airplanes are 50 ml, so these are exactly the same size. (For comparison, the single serving wine bottles are usually 187 ml.)

i.e. They are tiny. 50ml X 6 bottles X 2 boxes = 600 ml which is still less than one standard bottle (750 ml).

you're looking at it ALL WRONG. These are obviously meant to be the classiest shots ever. At least, I've always felt better than everyone else when I do shots of wine. Or most anything, but I'm kind of a tattle tale so don't listen to me.

Actually yes, if she hates it and breaks up with you, buy twelve remote control boats, use these to christen all of them. you win either way.

A cute idea. They strike me as just the sort of gift for a wine geek to be given by someone for whom the value of money is irrelevant and who knows too little to select something interesting. From my curmudgeon's perspective, the value in the proposition just isn't there. If the bottles were 200 ml, it might be a reasonable deal, but 50 ml?

I wonder if they have a teeny tiny bottling line to fill these little guys. Or if some poor cellar rat has to sit there with a funnel.

My dogs like me, that is important.

This would be a fun product if you love to cook and want to experiment with creating small plates to pair with each wine. At this price buy two sets and it's the perfect pour for each person plus you have enough for two dinners. I make multi course wine paired dinners for hubby and I on New Years Eve. It's fun but I am left with nine open bottles of wine to try to use up the following week.

A regular bottle is 750 ml, so all 10 or 12 of these mini 50ml bottles do not add up to a bottle...if i can add correctly. will pass

Just heard back. The photo is wrong. You are indeed getting the Stickybeak Syrah as noted in the description.

Sorry for the confusion. Now, go by 3.

I dunno, if you're really really diligent (read stupid) you can absolutely cut through a screw top with the wheeled foil cutter on your waiters corkscrew.
