Video of the Wine Vending Machine in Action

The BBC has discovered those wine vending machines in Pennsylvania, and has video of people using them. The piece oddly calls Pennsylvania out for not providing human sommelier assistance: "There is no sommelier on hand to talk tannins and bouquets, but in a country where convenience has always been a best seller, the machines makers hope to open another hundred by autumn." There is information provided for all of the bottles, which strikes us as sufficient for a machine that sells you booze, but we are convenience-hungry Americans, so what do we know?
