Choose Between Two Options

  • $65 for a one-hour in-home wine tasting with fruit and cheese pairing for up to 6 people (a $145 value)
  • $90 for a one-hour in-home wine tasting with fruit and cheese pairing for up to 12 people (a $275 value)

Although Decoding Wine’s experts draw up a list of wines that fit the style for your tasting session, you must provide the wines (typically four types at about $8–$12/bottle). In return, they supply wine glasses, cheese and fruit platters, and educational tidbits about various varietals and ideal food pairings. Clients may schedule tastings any day of the week after 5 p.m. This Groupon is valid within a 15-mile radius of Kettering.

Decoding Wine

Ken Oswalt awakened to his love of wine during a tour of Sonoma's rolling vineyards in 1990. An instant oenophile from that moment forward, Oswalt has spent the past few decades furthering his understanding of grapes' greatest gift to mankind. Now the principle expert behind Decoding Wine, he organizes in-home tastings in which he teaches clients to pair wines with foods and distinguish between different varietals. His courses help students apply all of their senses to the enjoyment of wine, from using the sense of smell to detect the oaky notes of a cabernet sauvignon to using the vestibular sense to stay upright after drinking a bottle of merlot.
