Like Mike Tyson, wine is robust, is often boxed, and should never influence tattooing decisions. Imbibe the spirit of a champion with today's Groupon: for $20, you get a wine tasting and cheese pairing for two at WineStyles in Coronado (a $44 value).
WineStyles' skilled and knowledgeable staff curate a collection of more than 300 wines sourced from around the world. Weekly tastings allow visiting duos to play tongue-matchmaker with six selections from the store's array, searching for delicate tastes that give clues to the kind of grapes used and whether they were grass-fed or free range. As they soak in light education about each wine, palates also enjoy a punch of flavor and sustenance from a plate of artisanal cheeses.
View the monthly calendar for tasting dates, with events held on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.
