If you are the kind of wine drinker who knows what she likes, but only when she tastes it, you might want to start frequenting the Lower East Side wine bar, Tre, on Monday nights. Owner/sommelier Guido Vennitucci has a clever deal, the wine swap. You bring in any European bottle you enjoy, and he trades it for a similarly-priced recommendation of his own. In addition, swappers get free appetizers.
