Wine connoisseurs assert that novice tasters should never pair red wine with fish, white wine with red meat, or excessive wine with jury duty. Lap up today's Groupon in moderate proportions with today's Groupon to Attrezzi Fine Kitchen Accessories in Portsmouth, New Hampshire. Choose between the following options:
- For $15, you get a two-hour wine-tasting class (a $30 value), available at 6 p.m. on either Mondays or Thursdays.
- For $15, you get $30 worth of wine from the shop.
Attrezzi broadens enological appreciation with small tasting classes and a handpicked selection of wines available for sale. During classes, grape enthusiast Matthew Maynard culls up to 15 students at a time, guiding the group on two-hour taste tests. Matthew delves into the magic of fermentation in a more formal and educational manner than guests would otherwise experience at the shop's complimentary tastings.
Alternatively, customers seeking an independent study can purchase one of Attrezzi's painstakingly selected bottles. Corked creations include the robust Earthquake zinfandel ($25), licorice-laden Betsy's Backacher from Spann Vineyards ($20), and rich flavor profile of Mollydooker's The Boxer shiraz ($30), which pairs beautifully with any shiner-healing steak.
