Southeast Wine Collective is a solution to a problem. It’s expensive to get wine equipment together for small-batch wines. So they brought umpteen wineries together under the same roof to press their grapes, including Division Winemaking Co., Helioterra Wines and Vincent Wine Co. The wineries get use of the gear and can sell their wares out of the tasting room just off restaurant-heavy Southeast Division Street. Inside the dimly lit tasting room that doubles as a giant bottle rack, there are $2 tasters, $7 glasses and $23 bottles from member wineries plus an $8 flight of tap wines and a $10 flight with pours from Crowley, Bow & Arrow, Vincent and Teutonic (the revolving-door roster changes frequently). Even the deviled eggs ($6) come as a flight. MARTIN CIZMAR.
