Though initially called tastings, wine flights gained their name when patrons grew bored and began to juggle the bottles. Let your taste buds soar with this Groupon.
Choose from Three Options
- $40 for a wine-flight package for two (up to a $82 value)
- $75 for a wine-flight package for four (up to a $164 value)
- $110 for a wine-flight package for six (up to a $246 value)
Each option grants one wine flight per person (up to a $25 value each). One hummus plate with pita crisps (a $7 value) and Taste of the World plate (a $25 value) awaits every couple. The latter is populated by a spread of hard and soft cheeses selected to compliment red and white wines, with garnishes such as caper berries, marinated Greek olives, and almonds adorning the plate. Dijon mustard, crackers, and bread round out the meal, and everyone receives 15% off any wine purchases.
55 Degree Wine
Cozy candlelight and flickering lanterns cast soft shadows in 55 Degree Wine’s cellar, where waiters eagerly pair customers’ palates with weekly rotating wines. Featured on Best of LA Weekly in 2012 for its wine program, the winery stocks more than 2,000 labels, of which up to 60 are spotlighted in the cellar’s monthly lineup of pours. Though most vintages are Italian, ambrosias from Europe, South America, and other far-flung climes find homes in the shop after being tasted and approved by store owners. The thermostat, appropriately set to 55 degrees, helps keep elixirs fresh and patrons comfortable, but guests may wish to bring a sweater or particularly affectionate bear.
