Thanks to cartoons, many Americans believe that the correct way to taste wine is to take a sip, then witness something so shocking that it causes them to involuntarily expectorate. Skip the spit takes and sample wine correctly with today's Groupon to Nectar Tasting Room. Choose between the following options:
- For $5, you get a wine tasting for two (a $10 value).
- For $5, you get admission for one to a Final Sip tasting event, held Saturdays from 9 p.m. to 10 p.m. (a $10 value).
Shared by five wineries, Nectar Tasting Room boasts 40 grape-based tipples within its 2,000- square-foot location. Anelare Winery, Hard Row to Hoe Vineyards, Northwest Cellars, Skylite Cellars, and Terra Blanca Winery join forces to delight discerning olfactory glands and stimulate sophisticated and sophomoric palates alike. Unlike tequila shots and shotgunned root- beer floats, wine is a slow sip, making it a more enjoyable libation. Wine tastings allow guests to stop by at their leisure and marinate their taste buds in five 1-ounce pours of delicious vino at the tasting bar, opening their senses to a delectable spectrum of refined flavor. At the weekly Final Sip afterhours party, vinous patrons taste through the iPad menu of open wine to sample 6–8 ounces (about one and a half to two glasses). Like salsa at a robot mixer, live music on Fridays and Saturdays adds flavor to the modern and inviting atmosphere.
Nectar Tasting Room
At Nectar Tasting Room, five local wineries—Anelare Winery, Hard Row to Hoe Vineyards, Northwest Cellars, Skylite Cellars, and Terra Blanca Winery—bring their award-winning pours to one downtown venue. To pair bites with sips, the tasting room’s wine experts and chefs collaborate on a menu of appetizers and desserts that accentuate the nuances of their 40-some wines. Within the 3,000-square-foot dining space, guests are greeted with the facility’s inner warmth brought on by a decor of hardwood floors, brick accents, and walls of windows. In addition to titillating guests' palates, the tasting room's team also organizes wine tours to explore Spokane's nearly 20 wineries and oversees several wine clubs that give members exclusive benefits, such as grapes autographed by each winery's master vintner.
