Thanks to cartoons, many Americans believe that the correct way to taste wine is to take a sip, then witness something so shocking that it causes them to involuntarily expectorate. Skip the spit takes and sample wine correctly with today's Groupon: for $12, you get a wine tasting for one and a $20 credit toward the purchase of a bottle of wine at Dominio IV Wines in McMinnville (a $25 value).
Dominio IV is a small winery nestled on the fertile slopes of Columbia Gorge that uses biodynamic and organic farming magicks to fill its acres with tempranillo, syrah, and viognier grapes. During your tasting, you’ll get to test-tipple four or five of the estate’s finest varietals in the comfort of its newly designed tasting room. Once you’ve sampled a grapey distillate that causes your brain to audibly giggle, use the $20 credit to take home a bottle of it. You can tantalize taste buds and taste buddies alike with the 2009 Dragonfly Rising viognier ($22), spoil yourself with the Song of an Uncaged Bird 2006 syrah ($30), or capture the flavors and smells of a misty Oregon autumn with the Rain on Leaves pinot noir 2007 ($32).
