Every wine contains a subtle bouquet of hidden flavor that can only be discerned by fishing a decoder out of the bottle and using it to read the encrypted message on the back. Unlock clandestine taste with today's Groupon: for $40, you get two tickets to UnCorked & UnTapped (an $80 advanced value, a $100 value at the door), a wine, beer, and culinary tasting at The Arboretum of South Barrington on Monday, May 23 from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m., and registration begins at 5:30 p.m. Proceeds benefit Sherman Health.

Named for its lush treescapes and the expansive nursery that once occupied the site, The Arboretum of South Barrington is an open-air collection of upscale shops, restaurants, and entertainment venues. An extension of their previous UnCorked wine-tasting events, UnCorked & UnTapped incorporates premium brews and al fresco dining for a more complete culinary experience and the liberating chance to talk to adults with your mouth full. After guests gather under a tent in the Munao Fountain Plaza and enjoy a sampling of live music, a complimentary shuttle chariots them to nine participating destinations, including Anna Shea Chocolates & Lounge, Cooper's Hawk Winery & Restaurant, Ruth's Chris Steak House, and L'Eiffel Bistrot, where spreads of foreign, domestic, and intergalactic wines, brews, and cuisine await.

The Arboretum of South Barrington is also home to many retail shops, including L.L.Bean, DSW, Jos. A Bank, Victoria's Secret, and more; early bird guests are free to peruse before registration. The shuttle will run throughout the evening, and all stops are within walking distance of each other, so guests are encouraged to sample at their leisure, taking time to soak up the atmosphere and free hugs from chairs at each location.

The Arboretum of South Barrington

Hearkening the charm of the town squares that dotted America in the early 20th century, The Arboretum of South Barrington places boutiques, restaurants, and cafés within strolling distance of each other in a central, tree-speckled location. The open-air center beckons with a verdant landscape of more than 2,700 trees representing 80 shade and ornamental species including maples, elms, and Golden Raindrops crabapples. Between these, gardens add splashes of color and potential hiding places for bank robbers on the run with 20,000 perennials and 10,000 grasses, originally nurtured by fourth-generation nurseryman Roy Klehm, a worldwide authority on peonies.

Apart from the grandeur and fresh air of nature, The Arboretum of South Barrington plays host to shops such as L.L. Bean, restaurants such as Anna Shea Chocolates & Lounge, and entertainment facilities such as iPic Theaters. Regular events keep the grounds bustling with culinary tours and live music.
