What You'll Get
Wine is a magical elixir that gives people the priceless power to communicate with plant life and crayons. Today's Groupon gives you access to the magical juice: $15 gets you a flight of five selected wines and your choice of a hummus plate, cheese selection, or dessert at JavaVino (up to a $33 value). The Poncey-Highlands husband-and-wife-owned coffee and wine bar features local and organic products and welcomes daters and post-storytime debaters. This Groupon is valid Wednesday through Sunday.
The cozy, laid-back, two-story wine and coffee house's large windows and ceiling fans encourage lingering and long talks about the meaning of life and the proper pronunciation of Sartre. Your wine flight will consist of five 2.5-ounce pours from JavaVino's wine list, which, like foliage and fashions, changes seasonally. The pared-down menu favors boutique vineyards from around the globe over the more well-known monster grape-crushing conglomerates. Sample a glass of the slightly sweet Washington State Kiona Reisling ($6 a glass) before moving on to the blackberry-hinted Three Winds Pinot Noir ($8 a glass) from France, or the organic Santa Julia Argentine Cabernet ($6), with notes of black cherry and currant. Included in the flight is your choice of either JavaVino's signature mixed cheese plate ($7.75) with five artisan cheeses, chorizo, mixed olives, and crackers; the vegan hummus plate ($6.95); or any of JavaVino's desserts. Taste the signature untraditional chocolate cobbler, which melts a half-pound brownie, chocolate cake, and chocolate syrup into a warm dessert pile and tops it with whipped cream and raspberry sauce ($5), or Ryan’s Grandma’s tri-layered, cream-cheese-frosted carrot cake ($5).
Drinking wine is like slipping a pair of rose-tinted glasses on your mind. The peaceful pour works quickly to enhance pleasantries (your dining companion, your meal, your hand-cobbled variegated-corn-ear loafers) while sentencing all your worries to a time-out in the corner. Get this Groupon and share the fermented-grape-juice magic with someone you love or someone you want to love you.
