Studying wine grapes in their natural habitat is much more enjoyable than exploring the dark, melancholy caverns of root beer's namesake. Stroll through blissful vineyards with this Groupon.
$37 for a Signature Winery Tour and Wine Tasting for One ($75 Value)
Trained hosts reveal their methods for harvesting, crushing, fermenting, and aging wines before issuing samples of their handcrafted varietals along with cheese and chocolate pairings and imparting knowledge about wine tasting methods.
An elegant chateau sits on the hill at the center of Leoness Cellars’ vineyard, overlooking 70 acres lush with grapes. The chateau welcomes guests who come to visit its tasting rooms and serves as a compass of sorts for those who wander too far on walks through the purplish fields. It looks on as couples recite their vows during wedding ceremonies, and it houses a complete production facility where daily tour groups learn about the age-old methods of crushing, aging, and singing soft lullabies to grapes. Chef Daragh Matheson fills the chateau’s kitchen with the aromas of Alaskan salmon, ahi tuna, and beef carpaccio—specialties that pair exquisitely with the cellars’ wines.

“This was much more of a tasting/pairing than a tour to learn about the winemaking process. However, the tasting/pairing was wonderful.”
