What You'll Get
Purchasing local food benefits the environment, ensures fresher ingredients, and keeps the baker elves in nearby trees from turning to a life of crime. Protect your neighborhood with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of local cheese, specialty foods, and other gourmet items at Local Vines and Gourmet Wine Shop in Cohasset.
A spectacular range of locally sourced delicacies and keepsakes fills Local Vines with a whirlwind of color and fragrance. Ranks of marmalade, honey, tapenade, and olives ($4.25+) strut the brimming aisles, eager to move into their new belly-homes, and hand-painted tea towels ($10.74) serve as more enduring kitchen companions. The shop's customizable gift baskets ($20+) can be loaded with seasonal epicurean favorites as carefully selected as Emeril's bedtime story, and the dulcet Puopolo dark-chocolate almond bark ($14.99/half-pound bag) baits sweet teeth into pouncing. Though this Groupon is not valid toward alcohol, the shop's extensive wine selection showcases a plentitude of hometown-grape heroes and imported Bacchus fuels alike, and an array of events strengthens budding oenophiles and parades potential cheese pairings. The shop's Summer Solstice shindig, which runs from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. on June 25, celebrates the invention of the sun with appearances by area winemakers and samples of cheese, craft beers, and sausage.
