Wine only gets better with age, much like sports cars, fossils, and the film career of Michael Caine. Sip matured mouthfuls with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $75 worth of wine and classes at Donna Da Vine in Brooklyn. Today's deal can also be redeemed through Donna Da Vine's online store, which offers free local delivery (one case minimum) to homes throughout Brooklyn.
Donna Da Vine attends to the palates of both wine connoisseurs and novice vino drinkers with an expansive selection of grape-gushing libations and wine classes. Roam the bottle-laden aisles of small-production grape nectars until a varietal such as Elsa Bianchi cabernet sauvignon ($14.99) or Morse Code shiraz ($13.99) leaps into your cart in a delicious ambush. Donna Da Vine also stocks a wide variety of champagnes, white wines, and rosé wines from around the world, such as the Austrian-made Hofer Zweigelt rosé ($18.99) and the Italian-made Masciarelli trebbiano ($12.99).
Hone your knowledge of the grape with one of Donna Da Vine's wine classes ($50/class), which whisk about 20 people away on an internationally inspired sipping session of five to seven wines to investigate different regions' finest pours. Like middle-school cliques, what's included varies by the week, with upcoming classes covering topics such as Que Syrah Shiraz (Monday, August 22) and Old World Wines (Tuesday, August 30).
