In a proper tasting, wine must be held up to the light to gauge its color, tossed on a cat's back to judge its acidity, and sipped through a crazy straw to annoy the host. Become the toast of any tasting with today's Groupon: for $29, you get a wine tasting for four that includes a wine sampling, four full glasses of wine, glassware, a cheese-and-sausage tray, and a bottle of wine to share at Indian Creek Winery in Georgetown (up to a $79 total value).
The winemakers of Indian Creek Winery thrill patrons' palates with well-crafted wines served in the scenic locale of southern Indiana. Guests sample some of the winery's piquant potables, which may include dry varietals such as the Dry Creek Red, sweet variations such as the Cardinal Red or Blackberry, or curious concoctions such as purple. Indian Creek's staff brings a comprehensive knowledge of the brand's brews to each tasting, enriching the sampling experience and making it easier to select a wine with which to fill a full glass (a $5/person value) while noshing from a sizable sausage-and-cheese tray (an $18 value). Participants also receive glassware sporting Indian Creek logos (a $5/person value) and a bottle of wine to uncork to toast the memory of absent stemware (up to a $21 value). Today's Groupon allows groups of four friends to share quality time and tastes together in a venue more exotic than a restaurant and more user-friendly than a horse-drawn cafeteria.
Indian Creek Winery
Indian Creek Winery came to be as the result of a 15-day road trip embarked upon by Mark Kendall and his wife. As the couple drove across the Southeast, they visited every winery they found between Alabama and Virginia Beach. At the trip's end, they'd acquired the inspiration to plant their own grapevines on Georgetown soil. Since then, they've developed wines that range from a three-wine blend called Dry Creek Red to a riesling sweet enough to make honey glow the envious green of a lovelorn alien. Visitors to the winery can take a seat indoors, or outdoors amid scenic views and live music, to pair red and white sips with platters of cheeses, summer sausage, and dried fruit.
