Delicately crushing grapes produces sweetly sippable wine, just as delicately crushing ice with pineapple produces the opening sounds of a Jimmy Buffett song. Imbibe delicious byproducts with this Groupon.
$49 for Six Bottles of Assorted Wine (Up to $100 Value)
A sextet of bottles grants sippers access to eclectic, internationally cultivated flavors more easily than eating a diplomat’s passport. The exact contents of the six-pack depend on the store’s current inventory, but each package includes bottles from locations as diverse as Italy, Spain, Argentina, and Dionysus’s backyard.
Hinsdale Wine Shop
Hinsdale Wine Shop is the work of a team of experts. Across the street from the train station in downtown Hinsdale, the shop is full of wine that is curated by a team of skilled oenophiles. Those wines are documented in dispatches from published travel and wine writer Bruce Schoenfeld. The bottles come from a network of wine-industry professionals, whether they're inexpensive Australian wines or high-end, limited-release European and Californian wines. The shop, which has been open since 2003, works to cater to collectors as well as less experienced wine sippers.
