Wine-tasting technique demands that you first swirl the glass, then take a sip, and then very slowly dribble wine down your chin so that the rest of your body can taste it. Imbibe elegance with this Groupon.

$15 for a Wine Tasting with Food Pairings for Two ($30 Value)

During the tasting, which starts at 6 p.m. and lasts 1.5–2 hours, guests sample two dry whites, two dry reds, one sweet red, and one sweet white wine. The wine selection is largely French, but also features varietals from around the world. Sips range from everyday drinkables to more sophisticated flavors and bubbly champagnes or proseccos well suited to parties or tours of confetti factories. Guests can pair their sips with bites of three–five savory items such as croque-monsieurs or quiche, followed by three–five sweet items such as a parisian macaron or french tart; menu selections may vary.

Atelier Monnier

Be careful—stepping into Atelier Monnier may become a habit-forming activity. Best of Voice Places bestowed the Best Croissant title upon the French bakery in 2012, adding that the chocolate-almond variety "will make an addict of you." Miami New Times blogger Trina Sargalski praised Atelier's parisian macaron, a gluten-free cookie comprised of a light crust, moist almond meringue, and a natural ganache filling in such flavors as pistachio, coffee, and raspberry cassis. The shop's glass cases also brim with European-style ice cream (crème glacée), profiteroles and pastries, and handmade chocolates along with freshly baked bread and sandwiches.

The store owes its success to the gourmet passions of owner and Belgium native Patrick Feyten and the artisanal creativity of French pastry chef Franck Monnier. The minimalistic decor allows guests to focus on the vibrant colors of their sweet treats, which range from a sunny lemon yellow to a rouge as deeply crimson as Édith Piaf's lips.
