Picnic baskets announce the start of spring in the same way that sweat pants announce the end of a vibrant social life. Enjoy the comfort of the great outdoors with today's Groupon: for $9, you get a packed picnic for two at Cave Vineyard, in Ste. Genevieve (an $18 value).
Nestled in the majestic rolling hills of Ste. Genevieve County, Cave Vineyard spans 14 fertile acres of prime grape-growing property and an on-property natural cave. This serene subterranean den—outfitted with electric lights, cozy tables, and wine casks—envelops famished blanket brandishers in a unique saltpeter picnic area. Each basket is loaded with an elegant spread of bread or crackers ($3), cheese ($5), olives ($5), and two decadent chocolate truffles ($5). Starting in May, stalagmites drip with quarter notes from cave-dwelling live music every Saturday. Guests are welcome to enjoy their picnics indoor in the event of a rainstorm or grape-juice tidal wave.
- Cave with a small stream stream [sic] running through or a pavilion overlooking a lake to enjoy the wine & cheese we just bought is a nice way to spend the afternoon with loved ones. ¬– Dave F., Yelp, 4/21/10
