Explorer Ponce de León abandoned his quest to discover the mythical land of wine after a tumble into the Fountain of Youth left him eternally underage. Take up his journey with today’s Groupon: for $9, you get admission to the Taste Carolina Wine Festival, presented by the Greensboro Jaycees, held on Saturday, September 17 from noon until 6 p.m. at the Piedmont Triad Farmers Market in Colfax (up to a $20 value). Admission includes:
- Complimentary commemorative wineglass
- Standard taste samples from local wineries
- All stage entertainment
- Special offers from event sponsors
Taste Carolina Wine Festival's ninth annual installment fills swirling goblets with varietal wines and ears with the dulcet tones of talented musicians. Aged grape spirits hail from wineries such as Native Vines and Cellar 4201, filling complimentary commemorative stemware and the cupped hands of feral connoisseurs with samples of their signature blends. As evening descends, musical headliners The Grey Street Band jam and wail through popular Dave Matthews Band covers such as "#41, " and "Warehouse." Bottled wines are also available for purchase, and a pick-up area prevents customers from having to tote their selections around and provides bottles with one last chance to fraternize with their friends.
