Like choosing a prom date, choosing a favorite wine necessitates sampling a variety to determine which one will produce the nicest bouquet. Enjoy the fruits of competitive courting with today's Groupon: for $40, you get a wine-pairing class for two from Bottled Grapes (an $80 value).

Bottled Grapes' French-trained wine expert teaches fledgling palates to pair vintages with a range of cuisine from area restaurants. Winemaster Krunch Kretschmar wields his extensive education to enlighten classes on the ways and reasons for pairing whites with lighter fare, reds with heartier dishes, and champagne with newly christened yachts. Each themed class focuses on a single region, varietal, or cuisine style, and though cuisines vary, past events have taken place at prized restaurants such as Tango Sur and Dinotto. Enjoy a gourmet meal as you explore the way flavors change throughout the regions of the California wine country, discover affordable bottles from Italy, or find out why wines from New Zealand swirl in the opposite direction. Classes seat a maximum of 25 guests; check the schedule to find an upcoming event. Additional dates will be added after January 1, and more will be scheduled each week, so check back often.

It was fun!

Fun, interesting, laid-back evening. Krunch, you are totally cool.

Though it was hard to find availability in one of the classes, once we got in, I enjoyed the event. The crowd was friendly, the food was unpretentious but tasty, and the venue - Dank Haus in Lincoln Square - was a hidden gem in the city. Overall a nice date night for my husband and me.
