Wine connoisseurs assert that novice tasters should never pair red wine with fish, white wine with red meat, or excessive wine with jury duty. Lap up today's Groupon in moderate proportions: for $15, you get one wine tasting 3 p.m.–6 p.m. on Saturday at Colonial Wine & Beverage (a $30 value) in Chesterland. This deal is valid any Saturday between now and the end of the year.
Voted Best Wine Shop in 2010 by CityVoters, Colonial Wine & Beverage offers a dazzling array of wines from across the globe. Colonial's seasoned sippers tantalize clients' taste buds with a selection of 12 wines from its extensive collection during the three-hour wine tasting. Guided by the vinological knowledge of the staff, curious imbibers can ask questions or improvise their own elaborate wine back stories that involve young grapes in love breaking free from the barrel they were born into.
- The huge inventory might be intimidating to most people, but each wine has an easy to read description, so browsing is fun and interesting. I had endless questions, and Bob Eppich and his knowledgeable staff stood up to my barrage of questions with a smile and lots of great information. – Jack Brice on Wine Blog
