Thanks to cartoons, many Americans believe that the correct way to taste wine is to take a sip, then witness something so shocking that it causes them to involuntarily expectorate. Skip the spit takes and sample wine correctly with today's Groupon: for $20, you get a wine tasting for you and a guest (a $10 value) plus a bottle of 47.5° Syrah 2007 (a $35 value) at Borra Vineyards in Lodi.
Borra Vineyard's third-generation grape gurus summon succulent spheres from the California soil to ferment spirituous batches of distinctive sippables. Along with reducing the risk of heart disease and some types of cancer, drinking certain wines can enhance meals and conversation skills. Sample a featured selection of winery libations inside the cozy cropland tasting room, a rural retreat for thirsty tongues, which boasts a brick façade and shaded porch. As a memento of wine-swishing safaris, visitors take away a bottle of liquid lusciousness to practice newfound gargling techniques in home tasting rooms. Bottled on-site at Borra's Gill Creek Ranch vineyard, the ambrosial 47.5° Syrah 2007 Limited Release teases taste buds with hints of boysenberries, plums, and molasses while providing the courage necessary to ask a stranger to dance, even in the absence of music.
