For $10, today's side deal gets you a wine tasting for one (a $5 value) plus $20 worth of bottled wine at Edmonds Winery, a boutique craft winery in Woodinville that specializes in Bordeaux-style blended wines. Waltz your way through Edmonds' tasting room any Saturday or Sunday between 1 p.m. and 5 p.m. and apply your Groupon toward whichever fermented fruit elixir finds its way to your heart. For the month of August, the tasting room is also open every Friday from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.
Edmonds handcrafts its wines in small, open-top fermentation tanks before aging them in small oak barrels. Producing only 1,000 cases of wine a year, the winery distributes them to local restaurants and gourmet shops. During your wine tasting, you'll get to try a variety of varietals, such as the sweet and dry 2008 Gewurtztraminer ($15), the intensely fruity 2007 Slide Ridge ($29), or the 2007 Delorious ($23), a wine made of equal parts delicious and glorious. Take note of which wine agrees with your flavor receptors and mind-matter the most, then take home a bottle.
