What You'll Get
Wine's current use as a flavorful social lubricant was discovered only after its failure as a lubricant for the gears of oversized rapper clocks. Stock up for a smooth-operating gathering with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of wine and merchandise at Cecile's Wine Cellar, centrally located in McLean. This Groupon can be used for both regular and sale items.
Cecile's Wine Cellar stocks a wide variety of wines, from inexpensive dinner pairings to lavish varietals, in an atmosphere of grape-loving camaraderie. Staff members' brains are chock-full of facts about food pairings, wine regions, and bottles to meet any need. For a month-long impromptu barbecue, pick up a pair of quality bottles such as a Monte Degli Angeli 2008 Sangiovese ($8.99, on sale for $6.98) with a 2009 Chateau La Roche S. Jean Blanc ($9.99), or celebrate a job that you invented with a bottle of Guillon Cremant de Bourgogne Blanc De Noirs ($24.99), a sparkling wine with notes of fresh berries and earthy expressions. If you're looking to splurge on a fresh young wine to adopt and care for until it matures into beautifully blushing Bordeaux, check the regional varieties for investments in oenophilia such as the Château Pape Clément Pessac-Léognan, which matures from 2012–2030 and was produced from the winery's 700th vintage in 2006 ($129.99).
Cecile's free weekly wine tastings operate on Fridays from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. or Saturdays from noon to 4 p.m. This Groupon is also good on any Cecile's merchandise, so you can walk in with no experience and walk out with a full complement of smashed-fruit drippings, bottle decorkifiers, and staff-supplied wine wisdom.
This Groupon is valid in-store only. You must be 21 or older.
