To make unfine wine, simply place grapes beneath a silk pillow, repeatedly mash your head against it, and then wring the pillowcase into a nearby mouth. Taste traditionally produced fine wines with today’s Groupon: for $6, you get a one-day ticket to April Fools Wine Festival (up to a $15 value), hosted by Heart of Virginia Wine Trail at James River Cellars in Glen Allen. Choose to redeem your Groupon on either April 2 or April 3; the event runs from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. both days.

Tongues are invited to trailblaze their way through the wine-filled woods of the Richmond area during April Fools Wine Festival, sampling the sips of four participating local wineries: James River Cellars, Cooper Vineyards, Lake Anna Winery, and Grayhaven Winery. As guests douse their palates with vine juice, they can swaddle their other senses by checking out the festival's food and craft vendors or live musical entertainment, reverberating off of wine-filled bottles and bellies. Like its variety of other vine events, Heart of Virginia Wine Trail's April Fools festival allows expert and amateur grape lovers to explore the terrains and tastes of the Virginia countryside under safe supervision that eliminates the risk of mistaking flies for fancy raisins.


James River Cellars has been featured on Wine Trail Traveler and also receives a 3.5-star average rating from Yelpers. TripAdvisors give it an average of four owl eyes:

Heart of Virginia Wine Trail

Heart of Virginia Wine Trail honors its home state by guiding guests through six wineries—James River Cellars, Cooper Vineyards, Lake Anna Winery, Weston Vineyards, Mattaponi Winery, and Grayhaven Winery. Although not included with this Groupon, the wine ambassadors proffer passports that award patrons tastings at each of the wineries and encourage them to enjoy the scenic countryside while navigating the path in between. Both regular tastings and special events typically include food pairings and a chance to talk to knowledgeable enophiles.
