Wine is an essential component of an elegant meal, alongside silk tablecloths and a server named Sir Anthony Hopkins. Taste good taste with this Groupon.

Choose Between Two Options

  • $20 for two wine flights and one cheese or dessert fondue for two (up to a $40 value)
  • $40 for four wine flights and two cheese or dessert fondues for four (up to an $80 value)

Each wine flight (up to a $14 value) includes three glasses of wine. Patrons take their pick of any wines on the menu less than $11, from the sparkling Mionetto prosecco brut—lauded by the Wall Street Journal in 2009—to the medium-bodied Terrazas malbec. Between sips, diners can dip into melty fondues (a $12 value each) filled with sweet substances such as Nutella or savory combos such as artichoke and pepper jack cheese. For the full menu, see Ballou's website.

Ballou’s Wine Bar

Ballou’s Wine Bar revolves around three prized delicacies: chocolate, wine, and coffee. From those staples, dozens of indulgent dishes ensue, including chocolate, Nutella, and peanut-butter-chocolate fondues and homemade truffles developed by Debbie, half of the husband-and-wife team that runs Ballou’s. Her chocolate fondue and homemade truffles are so deliciously decadent that they’ve earned the wine bar a spot on the Best of New Haven Reader’s Poll list for best desserts. In addition to rich desserts and froth-capped cups of cappuccino, guests can order wines from local and international vineyards, as well as a wide selection of pastas, sandwiches, and flat breads.


Their wine selection is wonderful and their staff is also very knowledgeable about each wine.

had a cheese fondue (the Italian table cheese) and it was so good that my wife and I couldn't stop raving about it while we stuffed our faces.
