True wine connoisseurs teach themselves to distinguish varietals, identify flawed bottles, and cry pure chardonnay. Become one with the grape with today's Groupon: for $25, you get dinner for two at Robust Wine Bar & Café (up to a $58 total value). The dinner includes:
- Any two 6-ounce glasses of wine (up to a $14 value each)
- Any two tasting plates (up to a $15 value each)
Robust Wine Bar & Café's wine stewards stimulate patrons' palates by pairing tasting plates with wines from across the globe. Certified sommeliers fill diners' glasses or plastic-lined top hats with one of more than 40 wines, including a medium-bodied viognier from southern France. Sippers may also opt for a full-bodied red such as a cabernet sauvignon cuvee, whose potent flavor profile of black currants, pine needles, and vanilla comes from years of the winemaker's careful engineering and foliage-nibbling in Napa, California. To complement their aged grape juice, guests can choose from many tasting plates including lump crab cakes placed atop vegetable slaw and bistro sirloin served with blue cheese potato gratin and sautéed spinach.
Our customers loved this deal last year, earning Robust Wine Bar & Café a spot on Groupon's Best of 2011 list.
