What You'll Get
Wine connoisseurs assert that novice tasters should never pair red wine with fish, white wine with red meat, or excessive wine with jury duty. Lap up today's Groupon in moderate proportions: for $35, you get a California-wine-tasting class (a $50 value), a bottle of wine (a $13–$15 value), and a $10 credit at KH&H Liquors, located next to Costco in Long Island City (a $75 total value).
KH&H picks libations from top-notch vineyards and distilleries to stock shelves and shock tasting taste buds. With today's deal, an experienced sommelier will acquaint Groupon holders with the fine art of wine tasting, revealing how to shop for vino like a pro, pair sips with food, and win food fights against wine-stained bridezillas. Visitors will sample six premium California wines that have earned high ratings from Wine Spectator and the Wine Advocate, including the licorice-tinged Shafer One Point Five cabernet sauvignon (a $65 value/bottle) and the Caymus Conundrum, a creamy blend of five whites that pairs well with light, spicy fare (a $20 value/bottle). Fancy-grape-juice sippers will then go home with a handy reference packet so they can study wines instead of memorizing this week's issue of TV Guide.
