Today's Groupon tantalizes tannin-loving taste buds with a sampling of local vintages: for $30, you get a Grand Reserve Tasting for two ($30 value), plus a Champagne house tour at Crown Valley Champagne House in Farmington. This deal also scores customers a gift box ($32 value), which includes a bottle of Muscato sparkling wine, two Crown Valley flutes, Crown Confections chocolates, and a Champagne stopper, which can be redeemed online with complimentary shipping to your door, upping the total value to $62.
Crown Valley Champagne House is a state-of-the art facility located about an hour south of St. Louis in historic Farmington, Missouri. Pop the cork on your bubbly visit with the Champagne House tour, where a friendly and knowledgeable guide will lead a twenty-minute, behind-the-scenes glimpse into the history and sparkling production processes of the first and only Champagne house in the Midwest. Next, recover from your journey by getting properly fueled and fizzed at the Grand Reserve tasting, where you and an imbibing friend will sip seven flights of the winery’s best sparkling and limited edition wines in their final form, paired with flavorful, bouquet-enhancing bites. Whether you’re conveyed home by the effervescent power of fizzy-lifting drinks, or a designated driver, the brut-based fun can continue at home should you choose to delve into the champagne and chocolate gift box instead of saving it for as a special Christmas, Hanukkah, or Grouponicus gift.
- Crown Valley Winery, for example, offers an array of attractions probably unmatched anywhere, from its state-of-the-art vineyards and winery to wine shops, antique stores, entertainment, a variety of lodging, restaurants, a golf course—and a sanctuary for abused tigers. – Paul Franson, Wines & Vines
- This part of Missouring [sic] is absolutely stunning, and the Crown Valley Winery is perched on top of a hill with one of the most beautiful panoramic views in the state. – TTTStLou, TripAdvisor
