Famed Spanish explorer Ponce de León was forced to forgo his quest for the mythical land of wine after an accidental tumble into the Fountain of Youth left him eternally underage. Take up his abandoned journey with today’s Groupon: for $150, you get a four-hour wine tour for up to eight people from About Time Limousines (a $300 value).
About Time Limousines whisks away epicureans in a well-maintained limousine for a four-hour guided tour of the Lodi, Napa, or El Dorado regions, each area lush with scenic vineyards. Guests will pair fine wines with savory facts in guided tours and tastings at the vintners of their choosing, such as Cooper Vineyards, Drytown Cellars, Scribner Bend Vineyards, and Deaver Vineyards. Skip the main course by sipping dessert wines such as Scribner Bend's award-winning 2007 port Vino De Postre, or absorb picturesque views of sangiovese and barbera vines, which slow dance and ferment without drawing the ire of buzz-kill chaperones. Clink complimentary glasses of champagne in the limo as you and a group of co-indulgers motor to and from the wineries.
Alternatively, clients may apply the value of the Groupon toward a different tour for up to eight passengers, such as a girls' night out or prom crashing. Additional hours may be purchased if needed; call to make reservations, plan your pickup destination, or solicit crossword-puzzle hints.
