True wine connoisseurs teach themselves to distinguish varietals, identify flawed bottles, and cry pure chardonnay. Become one with the grape with this Groupon.
Choose Between Two Options
- $25 for two tapas (up to a $7 value each) and one chocolate-dipped bottle of wine (a $40 value) to take home (up to a $54 total value)
- $45 for four tapas and two chocolate-dipped bottles of wine to take home (up to a $108 value)
These packages include one or two wine bottles hand-dipped in chocolate for at-home consumption. Because the bottle is wrapped in cellophane, the chocolate can be broken off the bottle with a simple pull of the tabs. The decadent gift playfully merges the classic pairing of wine and chocolate for a present that has been listed as a top-10 gift item in Wine Enthusiast and featured in various publications. Tasting notes and suggested food pairings also are included.
Each option also includes two or four tapas at the winery’s dining room. Choose from tomato-and-basil bruschetta, white-wine cheese, spinach-artichoke dip, and other small plates. Customers may also substitute the tapas for an antipasta platter (a $12 value); one platter for the two tapas option and two platters for the four tapas option.
Chrisman Mill Vineyards
With its rustic architecture and soft, rolling hills of vines, Chrisman Mill Vineyards brings a little taste of Tuscany to the Bluegrass State. Amidst hand-painted murals of Tuscan landscapes, guests in the tasting room pair ciccetti, or Italian tapas, with sips of local wine made from the best Kentucky grapes. The laid-back environment encourages visitors to savor the small pleasures in life, as do the staff, who entertain with amusing anecdotes and enlightening descriptions of how each wine is made. At the winery in Hamburg Pavilion, guests can also browse Kentucky-made goods as well as more than a thousand winery gift items, including customized gift baskets.
