What You'll Get
Famed Spanish explorer Ponce de Leon was forced to forgo his quest for the mythical land of wine after an accidental tumble into the Fountain of Youth left him eternally underage. Take up his abandoned journey with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get a Coquelicot Estate wine tasting for two at Bernard's Wine Gallery in Calabasas (a $30 value).
Bernard's Wine Gallery, a wine store with thousands of old and rare fine wines for sale, welcomes both wine neophytes and grizzled oenophiles to sip from its fine vat of liquefied vinefruits. Bernard Rosenson, who owns Bernard's Wine Gallery with his wife Cynthia, also owns Coquelicot Estate Vineyard, the organically farmed vineyard featured in this tasting. Six Coquelicot wines preside in the elegant tasting room, including the 2006 Bordeaux Blend, which won a gold medal at the 2010 San Francisco Chronicle wine competition for its dark, complex taste. Guests will swirl and sip in luxury, blissfully whisking away memories of Twilight Zone episodes where clubs of giant wine bottles attended a human tasting. Tastings run from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday.
Six Yelpers give Bernard's Wine Gallery a perfect five stars:
- I've had two wine tastings here, the staff was very helpful and friendly. the younger lady who helped me both times was very enthusiastic and knew quite a bit about wine. Next time I need a bottle of wine for something special, I will head back here. – Frank H.
- The employees were very kind and knowledgeable, helping me find what I needed. They have a very large selection so it was good to have some guidance. The prices seemed very reasonable. I will definitely be back! – Nancy M.
