Drinking wine is an activity that sometimes makes people believe they’re funnier, smarter, and two feet taller than they actually are. Today’s Groupon prolongs the pleasant fictions. For $12, you get a wine tasting for two and $20 of credit towards any in-store purchase at either D'Vine Wine location in Garland or Grapevine, a $30 total value.
The award-winning boutique winery specializes in personalized pours. Rather than growing its own grapes, D'Vine Wine starts with high-quality juices to create its renowned reds and crisp whites. Belly up to the bar for a romantic tasting, for as Yeats famously wrote:
Wine comes in at the mouth
And love comes in at the eye
I raise my glass to my lips
And loose my battle cry
After you sip D'Vine's daily selections, you'll receive a $20 credit toward any in-store purchase. D'Vine carries a complete collection of wine-related retail items in addition to its estimable vintages.
Unlike tequila shots and shotgunned root-beer floats, wine is a slow sip, making it a more enjoyable libation. Plus, wine in moderation can help reduce the risk of heart disease and other maladies. Stop in to redeem your Groupon at any time; no reservations are necessary.
Wine tasting includes three 2-oz. glasses each; your choice of 32 wines.
All four Urbanspooners like the Garland location, and one Kudzu user gives it five stars. Two TripAdvisors give the Grapevine store 4.5 owl eyes, making it the number one Grapevine attraction on the site:
- They've got some fantastic locally blended and bottled wines, at very affordable prices. They are set up to do wine bottling parties, using the blend that you like best…Its [sic] a great gift for someone, or just a fun way to spend an evening with family and friends. – Stinky, Urbanspoon
- It has a great atmosphere with a large bar to sit at and drink wine. I recommend doing the tasting at the bar so you can talk with people there. Employees there were all very knowledgeable and friendly. – bedmondson, TripAdvisor
- We had a wonderful server for our wine tasting who was very interesting to talk to and very knowledgeable about wines. Once our tasting was over we began to speak about some other wines and Ice Wine came up. It turns out that they actually sell an ice wine and upon tasting it we knew we needed to buy a bottle...it is so delicious – love2traveltogether, TripAdvisor
Grape Vine Springs Winery
Located on Main Street of Grapevine, Texas, Grape Vine Springs Winery treats visitors to countless varieties of wine paired with savory cheese and charcuterie plates. In the tasting and dining area, honeycombed wine racks and wooden barrels line the earth-toned walls, allowing visitors to imagine they've been swept away to the rustic cottage of a Tuscan vintner or the panic room of a billionaire. Guests sip house-made sauvignon blanc, malbec, and fruit-infused wine, while customers consult with wine representatives on creating a personalized label for any occasion.
