Wines, like wigs, come in a variety of colors, textures, and flavors. Taste the subtle nuances of style with today's Groupon: for $5, you get a tasting-fee admission ticket, which includes a wine glass, to the Wine Festival at Bethel Woods at the Bethel Woods Center for the Arts on Sunday, August 28 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. (a $10 value).
Held on the site of the original Woodstock festival, the Wine Festival at Bethel Woods pummels palates with melodious tastes from more than 30 regional wineries, food, and craft vendors. Amid the grassy plains, lush forests, and discarded muttonchops of the iconic backdrop, attendees swirl and savor the scintillating inner warmth of adult grape juice from Hudson Valley and Finger Lakes wineries. Sample the sweet cordials and aperitifs of Knapp Winery, the award-winning cask potions of White Springs Winery, and the multifarious tastes of Brotherhood, the oldest winery in the United States, known for its spiced holiday wine and charmingly rambling anecdotes. Several short seminars anchor the interest of wine enthusiasts throughout the afternoon, and musical performances keep guests' auditory canals entertained as liquid samples are paired with solid sustenance such as cheeses, baked goods, and fruit tarts. Purchase up to eight of today’s deal and treat two bobsled teams to an afternoon of barrel-aged revelry and teeth-staining bonding.
