What You'll Get
True wine connoisseurs teach themselves to distinguish varietals, identify flawed bottles, and cry pure chardonnay. Become one with the grape with today's Groupon: for $84, you get an on-premises winemaking experience yielding 30 bottles (approximately 23 liters) of wine at Borrelli Cellars (a $168 value).
Borrelli Cellars advises connoisseurs in vinting and bottling their own pours at its winery, using grape juice gathered from the world's top growing regions. After selecting a style from more than 40 varieties of reds and whites, partakers sprinkle in necessary quantities of yeast and personalize flavours by mellowing concoctions with oak or by reciting unfunny jokes to them. Over the subsequent six to eight weeks, certified wine consultants monitor the fermentation processes before clients return to the winery to bottle and package their product. Customers can either bring along their own empties or purchase bottles from the winery ($1 each) before marking each with personalized labels and replacing corks with security alarms to dissuade thirsty relatives. Customers also receive two $20 vouchers toward future winemaking experiences.
