What You'll Get
Like choosing a prom date, choosing a favorite wine necessitates sampling a variety to determine which one will produce the nicest bouquet. Enjoy the fruits of competitive courting with today’s Groupon: for $30, you get two admissions to the Say Cheese Wine Trail Event, which spans locations in Hermann, Berger, and New Haven (a $60 value). Event admission includes the following:
- Seven wine-and-cheese pairings for two
- Two souvenir wineglasses
Guests can sample the following pairings at the seven wineries any time on December 10 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and December 11 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.:
- Adam Puchta Winery in Hermann: Four-cheese smoked mac ‘n’ cheese paired with hunter’s red

The Say Cheese Wine Trail Event guides guests past a septet of family-owned wineries dotting the 20-mile Hermann Wine Trail on the banks of the babbling Missouri River. Guests redeem winery tickets over one or both days of the two-day tour, dressing palates in artisanal cheese, wine, and their finest tuxedo T-shirts as they wend from Hermann to New Haven. Between bites of cheeses and sips of tongue-tickling varietals, tour members take in unique winery attractions, such as the country’s largest network of underground tunnels at Stone Hill Winery and the colonial brick structure presiding over the Hermannhof property. Flitting from winery to winery and feeding olfactory senses with ambrosial bouquets, tour-goers can pause to enter a drawing for a one-night stay at a Hermann B&B, as well as a $30 gift certificate from each winery.
