Many people are intimidated by wine's subtle flavors and endless varieties, but did you know that it's actually just juice made from vodka-infused grapes? Learn other things my cousin told me about with this Groupon.

$15 for $30 Worth of Wine Tastings for Two

An Enomatic wine system lets guests tailor their flights, dispensing 24 wines in 1-ounce portions that start at $1 per taste. The rotating selection has featured wines such as Heavyweight Red cabernet sauvignon ($1.25/taste), Cakebread Cellars chardonnay ($3.25/taste), and Justin Vineyards & Winery Isosceles blended from cabernet sauvignon, merlot, and cabernet franc ($5/taste). Pairs also receive 10% off an artisan cheese platter, normally $16.99, and 10% off a purchase of six bottles or more.

OC Wine Mart & Tasting Bar

Twenty-four wine bottles line the circumference of two stainless-steel cylinders, both of which add a futuristic flourish to the middle of the room. With the touch of a button, the machine dispenses a 1-ounce sample of any of the wines—red at room temperature, whites at 55 degrees Fahrenheit. Praised on Foodbeast, this self-serve tasting bar, called the Enomatic wine system, lets guests sample an array of wines before committing to a long-term relationship with a single—or several—bottles. This method is just one of several ways OC Wine Mart & Tasting Bar owner Julie Lim takes the intimidation out of wine buying.

At her boutique wine store, Julie fills the shelves with vintages from both well-known and under-the-radar vineyards, with some of her favorites including Silver Oak Cellars, Caymus Vineyards, and Cakebread Cellars. She and her team thrive on helping guests find the best bottle—whether they're hunting for wine, craft beer, or a fine liquor. Once guests feel confident in their selections, the staff can help them compile gift baskets for holiday parties or year-end performance reviews. Committed to green practices, the staff eschews foam packaging in favor of molded-pulp shippers, derived from 100% recycled materials. Such practices earned Julie a place on OC Metro's list of 20 Women to Watch, plus her boutique a place on Gayot's Top 10 Wine Bars in the United States.
