Famed Spanish explorer Ponce de León was forced to forgo his quest for the mythical land of wine after an accidental tumble into the Fountain of Youth left him eternally underage. Take up his abandoned journey with today’s Groupon at Boutier Wine and Design in Acworth. Choose from the following options:
- For $30, you get enrollment for two in a one-hour introductory wine course (a $60 value).
- For $25, you get two custom wine labels with your choice of wine (up to a $53.98 value).
The expert vine-minds at Boutier Wine and Design help oenophiles stock their cellars and heighten their understanding of grape greatness. After an illuminating one-hour class with 10-year wine industry veteran Laura Cawthern, students will leave knowing which wines to serve with which foods and how to identify a corked wine by the way it tries to change the subject whenever anyone suggests tasting it. Over the course of approximately eight tastings (snacks included), pupils’ palates will learn to distinguish good wines from great ones and Chilean vine-sauce from California grape-tears. Newly educated, once-languid tongues will no longer sit idle through their wine-baths but dive gracefully through undercurrents of flavor and explore mystical whirlpools of tannins. Classes are held weekly and usually kept to 15 participants.
Savvy sippers can also opt for two wines festooned with custom labels, which are affixed to prevent Victorian outrage at the sight of a bottle's bare midriff. Simply upload your own pictures for the labels, then select two Boutier wines—the chardonnay 2007 American ($15.99), the merlot 2008 ($19.99), or the strawberry-raspberry fruit varietal 2008 ($19.99)—to create two customized showpieces ideal for emptying with friends or positioning proudly on mantels.
Boutier Wine & Design
Boutier Wine & Design owners James and Laura Cawthern oversee a collection of award-winning, locally produced red, white, and fruit wines. Inside their facility, the couple casts casual vibes across a variety of special events, including Ladies Night on the first Thursday of every month and Wine Down Fridays, when visitors can celebrate the weekend by sipping wine instead of by fervidly burning their work clothes. In addition to their potables, the Cawtherns help lift spirits with personalized gift baskets and custom labels that outfit bottles with personal photos.
