What You'll Get
Wine-tasting technique demands that you first swirl the glass, then take a sip, and then very slowly dribble wine down your chin so that the rest of your body can taste it. Imbibe elegance with this Groupon.
$25 for Two Tickets to How Sweet It Is Dessert-and-Wine-Pairing Event ($50 Value)
Pairs get the chance to sip five 1 oz. samples of wine paired with five two-bite drool-worthy dessert samples. Reservations are required to attend the How Sweet It Is event, held February 9, 10, 16, and 17, 5:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Saturdays and 1 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. on Sundays.

About Detour Winery
Detour Winery is not a big-name brand, but this smallish quality is part of the estate's charm. The other part is its location in the shadow of Catoctin Mountain. Here, close enough to Mother Nature to steal her purse, travelers can stop and savor life in the presence of wildflowers, grapes, pavilions, and softball fields.
The proprietor, Daniel Tamminga, cultivate award-winning wines—their current offerings cover all the bases from fruit and dessert wines to reds, whites, and blushes. But they also cultivate a healthy community with wine festivals, youth athletic-program sponsorships, and a summer concert series. They welcome weddings and corporate events onto their property and routinely host winemaking classes to help out new brewers, much to the horror of unstomped grapes everywhere.
