Professional wine tasters are capable of distinguishing red from white by taste, region produced in by smell, and whether or not wine was aged in a suitcase by appearance. Demonstrate your discernment with today's Groupon: for $32, you get a wine-tasting session for two and a bottle of wine (a $74 value) at Agua Dulce Winery.
Agua Dulce Winery's award-winning varieties of vinos are handcrafted from property-grown grapes. Tasters will furnish their palates with up to 5 wines from a list of 14, including multiple American Wine Society award-winners. Savor the light strawberry flavors of the 2005 Aneas Reserve rose of syrah, or subject taste buds to a more muscular, tannin-rich 2003 Aneas Reserve merlot or the 2002 Angeles Crest sangiovese. After the tasting, customers will receive a bottle of Agua Dulce's 2002 Aneas Reserve syrah, which should fit into most hollowed-out encyclopedias.
- The Port was probably the best I've had, and I loved their Sangiovese and Zinfandel. – Kaye P., Yelp
- Taking a tour or doing a wine tasting with some friends at the Aqua Dulce Vineyards (ADV) is a lot of fun. So is just sitting on the veranda outside the gourmet shop on a beautiful Spring or Fall day. It's beautiful, relaxing, and an excellent get-a-way from the city. – An Insider Pages User on 10/30/05
Agua Dulce Winery
Agua Dulce Winery unfurls its trellised vines and winemaking facilities across 90 acres of the Sierra Pelona Valley, effectively extending wine country a few hundred miles south. The grapes rely on the region's cool evening breezes and alluvial soils to maintain the earthy, peppery flavors and restrained acidity that characterize the region's wines. Medium- and high-toasted barrels from France, Hungary, and the United States each lend their own influence to the freshly fermented creations, aging the juice and subtly tweaking the flavorful interplay of rich fruit and restrained spice.
