Pa.'s newest wine vending opens near Pittsburgh

CRAFTON, Pa. (AP) - October 28, 2010

The machine opened Wednesday at the Giant Eagle Market District in Robinson Township. Customers insert their identification into the machines, and a state worker at a remote location checks to ensure they belong to the buyers.

Customers also must use a breath machine to test their blood-alcohol level. Sales are denied to anyone with a level of .02 or higher. The state's legal limit for driving is .08.

The kiosk offers 53 kinds of wine that cost between $6 and $40.

The Liquor Control Board opened the state's first wine kiosk earlier this year. The agency plans to eventually have kiosks at 100 locations across Pennsylvania.
