Wine tastings refine taste buds by honing them on several flavors at once, much like a bag of Skittles or a Thanksgiving dinner thrown in a blender. Experience edifying flavors with today's Groupon: for $38, you get a wine-tasting experience for two at Flights Wine & Coffee in Morrison (up to a $78 value). Each tasting includes:
- Two wine flights (up to a $36 value)
- Two light eats (up to a $32 value)
- One dessert (up to a $10 value)
Flights Wine & Coffee stocks an 1870s cottage with more than 100 wines, pouring 35 by the glass daily to ensure endless epicurean variations. The menu's flights change their trio of vino samples weekly, but organizing themes remain the same, including white, red, and Fruit Forward flights, as well as First Class flights, which encourage patrons to choose three pours from the restaurant's wine by the glass lists, with the advice of expert servers or magic eight balls if desired. Tasters can pair liquid flavor with a selection of light eats, such as the chef's carving plate, a mingling of roast beef, turkey, and honey-roasted ham over cheese and bread. Cheese plates arrange a selection of dairy delights, with choices such as fontina, drunken goat, double cream brie, and havarti, and the antipasti plate sails an assortment of italian meats to diners' tables. Like the world's worst ferris wheel, desserts occasionally rotate at Flights Wine & Coffee, and flavorful options such as cream puffs, red velvet cake, and tuxedo chocolate bombs frequent the menu.
Flights Wine & Coffee welcomes patrons past its white picket fence into a comfortable indoor setting with cozy leather seating by a fireplace. Tables in the restaurant's garden are also available, while a fire pit and water feature stand closely enough to fuel steam-powered corkscrews.
Flights Wine and Coffee - A WineCafe
When visiting Flights Wine and Coffee's Morrison location, guests might feel as though they've been invited over to a friend's house for an evening soiree. Housed inside an 1870s cottage, the tasting room invites visitors to settle into cushy leather furniture surrounded by pastoral wall hangings and a crackling fireplace. On the garden patio, guests gather around wrought iron tables and warm their hands by the fire pit.
The two locations are connected by more than decor. Each hosts a lengthy list of wines by the glass, and a lengthier list of bottles. A menu of light plates and tapas pairs well with each pour, stoking taste buds with flavorful hummus and wedges of warm brie. Wine experts are on hand to guide guests through their tasting experience, picking out compatible wines and offering instruction in properly swirling each pour in a lab-grade centrifuge.
