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. Taste the tales of the grape with today's Groupon: for $30, you get two tickets to the Hermann Norton Wine Trail event on Saturday, May 7 or Sunday, May 8 in Hermann, plus two souvenir wine glasses (a $60 value). Tickets are good for both days of the event, allowing taste buds to spread out their sampling across a 48-hour period.
The Hermann Wine Trail, an approximately 20-mile stretch of scenic riverside landscapes, is home to seven wineries, each amassing a celebrated roster of unique grape-brewed beverages and tasty eats. During the Hermann Norton Wine Trail event, fermentation factories including Stone Hill, OakGlenn, and Adam Puchta will offer samples of grown-up juices concocted with Missouri's own norton-grape variety and paired with palate-pleasing provisions. Saunter, sprint, or tunnel underground to each location to nosh on offerings such as polenta and wild mushrooms, roasted-beef-tenderloin bruschetta, and roasted red tomatoes and goat cheese with crisped baguette. After the oenophile odyssey use the two included souvenir wine glasses to further quench thirst or dye fingertips purple.
