An in-depth knowledge of wine can enliven humdrum dinner parties, just as an in-depth knowledge of dynamite fishing can enliven foundering job interviews. Give palates an executive education with today’s Groupon: for $59, you get an in-home wine-tasting event for up to 16 people from Wines for Humanity, available in Genesee, Livingston, Jackson, Macomb, Oakland, Washtenaw and Wayne Counties (a $250 value).

Wines for Humanity's professional wine advisers lead in-home tastings that teach patrons the finer points of the five-point wine-tasting technique and raise funds for local charities. As students sip seven exclusive vintages, they learn to judge wines' colors, aromas, and voting records, as well as pick out suitable food pairings. Wines for Humanity will bring glasses and deliver wines to the home before the tasting event, and hosts are encouraged to prepare complementary cheese and crackers. Wines will be available for purchase, at an average of $20 per bottle, and for every bottle of wine purchased at an event, Wines for Humanity will donate $2 to local charities that help to pay rent for families on the brink of homelessness. Bringing together a small circle of oenophiles for a reason other than the World Series of Cork Popping, tasting events serve charity, enliven conversation, and increase knowledge of fermentation facts.

Wines for Humanity

Wines for Humanity's professional wine advisers lead in-home tastings that teach guests the finer points of a five-point wine-tasting technique, all while raising funds for local charities. As students sip several exclusive vintages, they learn to judge wines' colors, aromas, and voting records, as well as pick out suitable food pairings. Before the tasting event, Wines for Humanity will bring glasses to the home while selected wines will be delivered by an in-state retailer, and hosts are encouraged to prepare complementary cheese and crackers. Wines that are selected for tasting run at an average of $20 per bottle.
