Grape juice magically transforms into wine in the same way milk becomes cheese and a 1972 Dodge Dart becomes an even older 1972 Dodge Dart. Tipple the tasty transformation with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $50 worth of wine at Albeno Munari Vineyard & Winery in Murphys.
The oldest continuously operating winery in Calaveras County, Albeno Munari harvests a bounty of fine wine grapes. Grown on the sunny slopes of the family vineyard and other local estates, grapes are lovingly smashed and placed into oaken cocoons, emerging as beautiful booze butterflies. The hefty stock of locally produced, home-grown vino contains a delicately sweet Muscat Canelli ($18), a soft and smoky Syrah ($22), and a brooding, meaty Grenache ($22). Drinking wine is like slipping a pair of rose-tinted glasses on your mind. The peaceful pour works quickly to enhance pleasantries (your dining companion, your meal, your hand-cobbled variegated corn ear loafers) while sentencing all your worries to a time-out in the corner. Get this Groupon and share the fermented grape-juice magic with someone you love or someone you want to love you.
