Famed Spanish explorer Ponce de León was forced to forgo his quest for the mythical land of wine after an accidental tumble into the Fountain of Youth left him eternally underage. Take up his abandoned journey with today’s Groupon: for $50, you get wine club membership to the Crown Valley Club (a $100 value). This offer must be redeemed online, but memberships cards will be available for pickup at the Crown Valley Winery in Sainte Genevieve.
Nestled amongst sprawling vineyards and housed within a magnificent compound, Crown Valley Winery refreshes palates with an enchanting array of handcrafted wines. Club members receive an exclusive VIP card, which grants them a 10% discount on purchases at any Crown Valley location and permission to roll down the vineyard hills in a personalized wine barrel. The exclusive benefits package also furnishes visitors with complimentary sampling glasses upon each visit, as well as a 10"x6" Crown Valley Club cooler which may be stuffed with victuals from home and brought to tastings.
In addition to the standard benefits, Crown Valley Club members bask in a downpour of monthly offerings, such as tastings at Wooden Nickel and Port House breweries, and tours of the eponymous Crown Valley Winery. Wine 101 classes enlighten tasters on the finer points of cork sniffing, while half-hour wagon ride tours provide an easygoing opportunity to gossip playfully with the grapevines. Cardholders are privy to a complimentary house-label bottle of wine and may expect to receive a $10 gift card toward their favorite selection.
