Wines, like a comfortable T-shirt or a hard candy left to ripen under the couch, only get better with age. Taste the passing of time with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of wine at Georgetown Wine and Spirits in Fairport.
Fermented grapes flourish at Georgetown Wine and Spirits, where a wide range of international bottles await oral adoption by thirsty parents. Customers can peruse Georgetown's variety of varietals, including cabernet, riesling, pinot noir, and merlot, all artfully arranged according to the grape type. Certified sommelier Jon Link, the acting syrah-sergeant of Georgetown Wine and Spirits, sensibly supervises the selection of international sips and suggests his favorites to amateur wine enthusiasts. Wash down a fresh meal or a fresh comeback with a 2007 Morro Bay chardonnay ($10.99) or a 2005 S.A. Prum WS auslese ($29.99). Or opt for a 2009 Thirsty Owl riesling ($13.99) to add appropriately sophisticated accompaniment an evening of jazz and bird calling.
Just back from a trip to France, Link has expanded the French wine section and suggests that slurpers sample suds from the Bordeaux region, where, through witchcraft and wizardry, winemakers transform solid fruits into liquid fun. Check the website for 90-point wines under $15 and staff picks.
