What You'll Get
George Orwell famously wrote about wine-making, "If you want a picture of the future, imagine a boot stomping on a grape's face—forever." Have fun proving him right with today’s grape-smashing Groupon: for $60, you get to select a wine-making ingredient kit, brew wine in-store and have it processed at Bootleggers Beer and Wine Home Brewing Supplies in Brandon (a $120 value).
Bootleggers, a storehouse of brewing equipment and expertise, guides novice alchemists in their attempts to transmute vine-fruit into precious alcohol. Choose from merlot, cabernet sauvignon, port, or other select ingredient kits, the largest of which can produce up to 30 bottles. With the assistance of wine-making professionals at Bootleggers, customers will brew their wine on-site, where it will rest in glass carboys for four to five weeks. Afterward, the Bootleggers staff will lead patrons into a deep cellar, promising them a cask of amontillado. When picking up wines, patrons can either provide their own bottles or buy a bottle, cork, and label kit from Bootleggers (about $56-63).
