Studying wine grapes in their natural habitat is much more enjoyable than exploring the dank, melancholy caverns of root beer's namesake. Stroll through blissful vineyards with this Groupon.

Cobbler Mountain Cellars
On a stroll through Cobbler Mountain Cellars' winery, one might come across owners Jeff and Laura McCarthy Louden guiding visitors to the cozy tasting room. There, the married vintners describe taste-size samples from their reserve, such as an oak-and-stainless-aged chardonnay or a cabernet sauvignon with notes of dark cherry and tobacco. The Atlantic Seaboard Wine Association awarded the winery's 2010 cabernet franc and 2010 petit verdot bronze medal awards, and the 2009 meritage won a bronze medal at the 2012 Nextgen Wine Competition. The Loudens pair their estate wines with samples of local artisanal cheeses and breads.
