Two Lads Winery - Peninsula: $25 for a Private Wine Tasting for Two with Tasting Menu and Winery Tour at Two Lads Winery in Traverse City ($50 Value)

In a proper tasting, wine must be held up to the light to gauge its color, tossed on a cat's back to judge its acidity, and sipped through a crazy straw to annoy the host. Become the toast of any tasting with today's Groupon: for $25, you get a private wine tasting with a tasting menu and a winery tour for two at Two Lads Winery on the Old Mission Peninsula in Traverse City (a $50 value).

Two Lads Winery's grape-laden, sustainably farmed fields yield 11 wines in a variety of vintages, with a focus on dry reds and sparkling wines. The 1.5–2 hour visit starts with a tour of the 58-acre hilltop complex, during which guides explain the wine-making process using diagrams painted by children, before the tour moves to the 22-acre vineyard, where the grape connoisseurs teach about grape varieties and grape-milking techniques.

Two Lads' facility employs a gravity-flow transport system, which delicately ushers wine through the process without a pump or filter degrading the complicated flavor profiles. In the barrel room, tour-goers learn how wine ages and can ask the staff any questions they have about famous American Olympians. After the tour guide vanishes in a shroud of smoke, the tasting commences with a selection of Two Lads Winery's wines paired with a plate of gourmet nibbles.

Reviews

ABC News, Food & Wine, and martha & tom have featured Two Lads Winery. Seventeen Yelpers give Two Lads Winery a four-star average.

  • Judging by appearance, of both their bottles and their building, 2 Lads looks like the premier winemaker of the Old Mission Peninsula. Drinking their wine—even before having several glasses—confirms this is the case – Tom, martha & tom
  • Sitting atop a hill on 58 acres, the Two Lads building could have come right out of the pages of Dwell magazine, with its sleek lines, corrugated metal walls, poured concrete floors and massive windows – Andrew Putz, Food & Wine
