Total Wine & More revamps store look

Shopping for wine, beer and spirits just became more modern and engaging at the new Total Wine & More in Laguna Hills and Huntington Beach. Both stores just rolled out its "next-generation" concept, while the other Orange County stores are expected to add new technologies in 2013.

Total Wine & More, which offers highly-rated wines priced lower than even Costco, 24 styles of beer, and an impressive collection of spirits, has unveiled a state-of-the-art tasting bar where you can access Total Wine's iPad app for recommendations based on wine and food pairings. You can even print out recipes and recommendations in the store, or send them via email.

There's an area for educational wine, beer, and spirits tastings, and flat panel TV's streaming videos about wine, beer and spirits makers. Total Wine & More will also introduce quick response codes for on-demand video content, as well as details on tasting profile, ratings and price comparisons.

Wine enthusiasts can also sign up for classes about various types of wines, beers and spirits, and attend a Meet the Maker series for a chance to meet renowned makers and to taste and learn about the history of their craft. The education center can also be reserved by nonprofits and businesses at no charge.
