What You'll Get
Wine countries are much like regular countries, complete with individual customs, legal systems, and flags stitched out of stomped grapes. Visit a savory nation with today's Groupon: for $97, you get a tour of three wineries with Georgia Wine Country Tours, based out of Alpharetta (a $223 value). This deal gets you a tour, plus tastings, at three of Savannah's major wineries, stopping first at Butterducks Winery, then Meinhardt Vineyards and Winery, and finishing off at Shannon Vineyards where a delicious dinner and bottle of wine awaits.
Georgia Wine Country Tours provides all-inclusive day trips to the plethora of nearby wineries, transporting oenophiles on comfy minibuses and depositing them at award-winning wineries along the eight-hour adventure. Included in the expedition is five to seven wine tastings at each stop, so you could treat palates to Butterducks' Wines of the South-winning Savannah Red and Shannon Vineyards' pear-tinged Moon River White. Tasters will also savor a gourmet dinner at the end of the day, plus receive souvenir wine glasses, a far better gift than souvenir sugar packets handed out during tours of the White House. Tour buses currently depart downtown Savannah at 1:30 p.m. and return at 9:30 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays during December and January. Each bus can hold 26 people.
