After Capri Sun began creepily transforming people into amorphous metallic globules, wine rose to prominence, offering a similarly complex flavor profile without the threat of spontaneous melting. Celebrate wine, or "nature's Capri Sun," with today’s Groupon: for $25, you get a wine tasting and campfire storytelling at Don Quixote Distillery & Winery in Los Alamos (a $50 value). Tastings are held from 7 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. on two Saturday evenings a month, starting June 4.

An eco-friendly boutique distillery and winery, Don Quixote harnesses the moon's magical shines to produce fine drinkables from all-natural, New Mexican ingredients. Grape gurus host the wine tasting around an open piñon-burning campfire in Don Quixote's courtyard. Oenophiles can sip 17 different grown-up grape juices and 10 varieties of spirits while gazing at the galaxy's natural nightlights. Backed by the crackle of an open campfire, expert vino-ologists tell tales about the early days of Dionysian drink-making, Prohibition, distiller-related moments of the American revolution and colonial New Mexico, and the wartime decision to turn the Great Lakes into pinot-noir reservoirs. Listeners who have lost energy during shadow-puppet reenactments can replenish nutrients with the smattering of noshables, including meats, cheeses, breads, and gourmet russian chocolates.

Schedule is subject to change, so be sure to call ahead for reservations.

Don Quixote Distillery & Winery

Ron and Olha Dolin didn’t discover their shared passion for wine and spirits until after they were married. Together they use Ron’s Ph.D. in engineering and Olha’s generational knowledge of producing vodka and brandy in Eastern Europe to craft handmade wines and fine spirits. Their wines include the specialty Emotion series, which includes cherry sherry, apple ice wine, and a wine made from rose petals. The two also distill spirits ranging from blue corn vodka and bourbon to gin made from New Mexico juniper, pinon, chamisa, sage, and rose hips.

Customer Reviews

What a wonderful and fun evening! The atmosphere is relaxed and casual. The host is knowledgeable about spirits (you will learn a lot) and charming in an unassuming way. And, of course, you will learn how to mix (and consume) five different drinks, all with the excellent liquor store of the Don Quixote Distillery. Don't miss the chance.

Don Quixote's Mixology Class was a lot of fun, and we learned a lot. Well-organized and conducted by charming, friendly people.
