Conquer oenophobia and prevent embarrassing wine-menu incidents with today’s grapey Groupon. Toast to tannins, tapas, and taste buds with a $25 intro to wine course at Indulge Wine Bar, a scenic Highlands Ranch spot voted one of Denver’s top five Best Wine Bars by CityVoters.
Hosted by one of Indulge’s sommeliers, including Wine Director John Benson, the three-hour classes ease newbies into full-blown oenophiles with eight tastings (of each main grape varietal), information about the production process, and a study guide. Seasoned sippers can still appreciate the course, plus it's an opportunity to sample Indulge's tantalizing flat bread pizzas and fine cheese boards. Classes are offered every other Tuesday evening and start at 6:30 p.m. Class size is limited to 16 to ensure a quality experience.
Unlike icy libations, hot toddies, or Christmas decorations, wine can be enjoyed year round. Wine is the golf of the alcohol world—relaxing, enjoyable at any age, and valuable while interacting with in-laws, bosses, and business clients. Also like golf, drinking wine usually involves tons of explosions and lots of mummies. Get this Groupon to master the sophisticated spirit, woo potential paramours, or to secure your fixture in social circles.

Indulge Wine School
Indulge Wine School's staff of educators, such as Kris in Jacksonville, a wine expert and blogger, expands wine knowledge with ease, having turned the revelry-steeped tassels of nearly 3,000 graduates. Classes of 12–20 take place in venues throughout the United States, as students swirl and sip their study materials and nibble complimentary appetizers. Every class ends with a Q&A session, during which potation professors shine a light on oenophilic mysteries including tannin content and regional differences. Afterward, students continue to ferment knowledge at home with a complimentary electronic copy of Indulge's book A Fun and Informative Introduction to the Wonderful World of Wine, a food-and-wine-pairing chart, and a top-10 list of wine-buying tips.
