White wine, like revenge, requires a long fermentation period and is best served cold. Sip on tastier ferments with this Groupon.
$89 for a Boutique Wineries of Washington Tour ($199 Value)
The Boutique Wineries of Washington tour begins with a three-course lunch from a seasonal menu and a wine pairing in a candle-lit barrel room, followed by up to five hours of tasting visits led by knowledgable guides. Tastings usually take place in the barrel rooms themselves, where the winemakers are present to greet tour-goers. Guests sample three to five different varietals per visit, some of which aren't available in stores. During the fall, grapes arrive from Eastern Washington and tour-goers witness grape crushing and the fermentation process. Tours pick up and drop off customers in Seattle or Bellevue.
Barrel Wine Tours
There's a revolution happening in Woodinville, Washington. There's no violence though, unless you count the stomping of grapes. Home to hundreds of boutique wineries, the region is beginning to rival Napa Valley as the United States' biggest wine producer. Woodinville sits at the same longitude as France's wine country, allowing for optimal adult-grape-juice production and the ability to wear a beret with dignity. Barrel Wine Tours, a co-op of Woodinville winemakers, takes guests throughout the community on tours of the wineries of these passionate part-time vintners. On a luxury coach, participants ride to four distilleries or wineries, and three-course lunches and wine pairings occur during each tour.
