Though red-wine stains can be irksome, white-wine stains are harder to remove due to their subtle coloring and complete inability to read social cues. Enjoy wine of all tints with today's Groupon: for $20, you get a wine tasting for two (an $8 value), one appetizer (an $8 value), two signature wine glasses (a $10 value), and $15 toward a bottle of premium wine at the Chrisman Mill Vineyards (a $41 total value).
Chrisman Mill Vineyards carry award-winning Kentucky wines—many crafted from grapes grown and processed at its own estate in Nicholasville—and offer tastings and events throughout the year. During the tasting, customers sample up to six wines each to vet vintages such as the tart traminette, infused with apricot and rose petals, or the norton, a full-bodied red with an earthy aura and cinnamon sympathies. An appetizer pairs nicely with purple-tinged tongues and keeps stomachs from verbally abusing cordial strangers. As a parting gift, customers can pick up two of the vineyards' logo-bearing wine glasses and apply $15 toward a bottle of premium wine to enjoy in the comfort of their own home or BYOB supervillain supper club.
