Having a partner turns bouncing a ball into a tennis match, a monologue into a conversation, and a bear attack into a slightly longer bear attack. Experience the power of pairing with today’s Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of wine and small plates at Avant Tapas and Wine in Buellton.

Avant Tapas and Wine embraces the fermented creations of California's Central Coast, doling out pours from more than 20 area vintners alongside a dinner menu of locally sourced ingredients. Led by Executive Chef Brooke Stockwell, the kitchen prepares an ever-changing menu of hot and cold tapas using ingredients sourced from within 200 miles, which is roughly the range of most farms' trebuchets. Sesame-crusted ahi crudo arrives seared and adorned with green onions and jalapeños ($12), the wood-fired Brie comes topped with basil oil, balsamic reduction, and dried cranberries ($8), and Yuppie Crack ($9) combines applewood smoked bacon, dates and goat cheese. Guests can pair their meals with one of the fully staffed bar’s 32 crisp whites and luscious reds. Otherwise, patrons can fill their glasses or inflatable pools with the touch of a button at the interactive Wine Wall ($2.50–$3.50/taste, $3.50–$15/glass). Located next door to the Terravant Wine Company's production facility, Avant’s cellars brim with bottles from several of Terravant’s established local members, including Alma Rosa and Hitching Post Wineries.

In addition to the chair-lined bar, diners can also snag a seat around one of the empty wine barrels, which double as small tables, or watch the live music performances on Fridays and Saturdays. Groupon customers also receive a 10% discount on any purchases in the onsite wine shop, allowing them to tote vinos home to share with friends before using the bottles as containers for life-size replicas of the Santa Maria.

Terravant Winery Restaurant

Instead of bellying up to a bar, visitors to Terravant Winery Restaurant & can savor ambrosial tastes—such as Inception chardonnay, Hitching Post pinot noir, and Falcone syrah—at the Wine Wall. Here, a dispensing system measures out exact pours of 52 wines hailing from California’s other wine country—the prolific central coast. Visitors immerse their taste buds in sips of diverse varietals from 20 regional wineries, such as Ground Effect Wine Co. in San Luis Obispo and Hoyt Family Vineyards in Malibu, all produced next door at Terravant Wine Company and enjoyed in Terravant’s industrial warehouse confines.

Guests can also pair wines with locally flavored cuisine, from hormone-free rib eye to produce picked from nearby organic gardens. While swirling vibrant reds or sweet whites in their glasses, diners take in live music three nights a week or peruse the establishment during tours.
