Before the invention of wine, humans displayed olfactory prowess by sniffing out empty caves and discerning what berries were used to flavor their glasses of wooly mammoth tears. Hone nose and tongue sensors with today's Groupon: for $16, you get wine surfing for two and a cheese plate (a $32 value) at Gourmet au Bay in Bodega Bay.

A waterside wine bar and tasting room, Gourmet au Bay offers a rotating, eclectic selection of small production, award-winning wines surrounded by majestic bayside views. Ride a tongue-pleasing wave for two by selecting 3 wines from Gourmet au Bay's current wine list, served in 2-ounce installments on a miniature surfboard, specially developed by a focus group of surfing pixies (an $18 total value). Taste buds will also enjoy a cheese and cracker plate (a $14 value), great for insulating stomach walls and clearing the palate.

Enjoy the grape juice of the gods while feasting eyes on the Bodega Bay scenery encircling Gourmet au Bay's outdoor deck, with occasional glimpses of frolicking sea lions, harbor seals, and ghost pirates.

Gourmet au Bay

Stationed along the Sonoma Coast, Gourmet au Bay pairs small-batch, award-winning wines with breezy waterfront views from its bayside deck. The business keeps its wine collection stocked with premium products thanks to a set of strict criteria—every bottle boasts a gold medal, fewer than 1,000 cases of its kind in production, a flawless criminal record, or a score of 90 points or better. Every day, visitors may stop in for glasses of wine, as well as bottled beer and cheese-and-crackers platters. Gourmet au Bay also specializes in what it calls wine surfing, which presents three wines selected from the daily menu atop a specially designed surfboard.

It was a great experience! The wine was great, loved the cheese plate. We bought some extra cheese to enjoy the next day and some souvenirs. Already told several friends. We live 30 mins away but had never been there. But watch out now!!!!
