Like Mike Tyson, wine is usually robust, is often boxed, and should never influence tattooing decisions. Imbibe the spirit of a champion with today’s Groupon to Montaluce Winery and Le Vigne Ristorante in Dahlonega. Choose between the following options:
- For $45, you get a deluxe vineyard-and-winery tour with a tasting for two (a $90 value).
- For $79, you get a deluxe vineyard-and-winery tour with a tasting for four (a $180 value).
Based on appointment availability, tours embark every Tuesday–Sunday between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m. and include the following:
* A glass of prosecco
* Tour with vineyard sommelier
* Tasting of six wines
* One cheese plate per twosome
Montaluce Winery’s passionate vintners lead informative amblings across the rich soil and steep hillsides of a rolling 19-acre vineyard. During the vineyard jaunt, an expert sommelier discusses the long growing season and ideal terroir responsible for Montaluce’s premium wines and explains the farming practices used to herd free-range grapes. Visitors then lay eyes upon Montaluce’s state-of-the-art, gravity-flow winery and the chandelier-lit barrel aging room. Tours draw to a close as diners alternate sips of cabernets and chardonnays with nibbles of cheese as the two ingestibles argue over who gets better with age.
