Like a velvet suit, a grape is classiest when crushed. Sip opulent squeezes with this Groupon.
Choose Between Two Options
- $29 for a wine tasting for two, two wine glasses, and a gourmet cheese platter (a $70 total value)
- $39 for a wine tasting for two, two wine glasses, a gourmet cheese platter, and one bottle of wine of up to $29 in value to take home (a $99 total value)
The tasting includes samples of six wines, which customers can swirl within a large Bordeaux-style glass whose ample bowl allows each wine's aromas to mingle. Additionally, the winemaker will personally select samples of gourmet cheeses intended to pair with the wines. Guests can also opt to take a bottle home up to a $29 value to accompany dinner or replace a long-lost bowling pin.
Orange Coast Winery
At this self-described urban microwinery, vintners crush, age, and bottle their own vintages using local California grapes. Inside its capacious cellars, juices from grapes grown in regions such as Paso Robles, Napa, and Sonoma age in oak barrels. The resulting vintages are available for purchase onsite, online, or through a nearby genie, and also fill glasses Thursday–Sunday in the attached tasting room. There, patrons can meander through rows of barrels, stop to rest their glass on a granite-topped bar, and on nicer days, catch a salt-sprinkled breeze through the open warehouse door.
