Explorer Ponce de León abandoned his quest to discover the mythical land of wine after a tumble into the Fountain of Youth left him eternally underage. Take up his journey with today’s Groupon: for $20, you get admission to a wine-tasting event at La Bodeguita Meat Market in Miami Lakes (a $40 value). Tastings are held from 6 to 8 p.m. on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays.
La Bodeguita Meat Market encourages budding oenophiles to entertain and refine their palates during weekly wine-tasting events. Sommeliers in training can swirl, sniff, and savor unlimited samples of five preselected varietals, noting their unique flavors, aromas, and hair-dying capabilities. A maximum of 50 customers per tasting cultivates a small-group atmosphere and ensures grapes don't feel overwhelmed by the scrutiny. Although not included with this Groupon, snacks are available for purchase during the event. Call ahead to make a reservation.
