If grapes could talk, they'd recount their dreams, the first time they got plucked, and the first time they felt victimized by nature's rumor mill—the vine. Hear the tales of the grape with today's Groupon: for $75, you get an eight-hour wine tour from Heart of Texas Wine Tours (a $150 value) in Marble Falls. Tasting fees, which add up to $20 among all the wineries, are not included with this Groupon.
Nestled within the scenic bluffs and idyllic vistas of Texas Hill Country, Heart of Texas Wine Tours carts thirsty excursionists on a leisurely eight-hour trek through the area's most treasured out-of-the-way wineries. An expert vino vanguard mans the wheel of an intimate 12-passenger minibus, guiding guests to wineries that boast warm climate varietals, premier reds, Hill Country varietals, and competitive cork-firing contests. Amicable owners and winemakers often impart personal stories of their craft, history, and youths spent leaping over shark-filled fermentation tanks on grape-fueled motorbikes. Purple-tongued patrons can bring a lunch or indulge in gourmet cuisine at a local microbrewery (not included with this Groupon), and aspiring DJs can spice up anxious winery-spanning jaunts by plugging their iPod into the bus's stereo.
