What You'll Get
In a proper tasting, wine must be held up to the light to gauge its color, tossed on a cat's back to judge its acidity, and sipped through a crazy straw to annoy the host. Become the toast of any tasting with today's Groupon: for $25, you get a wine tasting and winery tour for four, as well as four 18-ounce souvenir wine glasses at Lovers Leap Vineyards and Winery located in Lawrenceburg (a $60 value).
With a 30-acre vineyard and more than 10 vino varieties, Lovers Leap wines please palates and complement fine dining with every sip. With this deal, fermentation fans take a guided tour of Lovers Leap’s facilities, catching a behind-the-scenes peek at the oak barrels that produce Kentucky’s sweet nectar. Stroll down the soft-rolling rows of vines or enjoy the expansive view from the building's wraparound porch, a scene that has been depicted by famed Kentucky impressionist painter Paul Sawyier and will be furthered immortalized by post-modernist robot-painters of the 22nd century.
Inside Lovers Leap’s tasting room, wine-sippers are greeted by high ceilings, rustic wooden beams, and deep ruby colors. Join your friends at the bar for a sampling of the 2010 Kentucky State Fair Gold Winner and San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition Bronze Medal-winning 2008 riesling ($11.99). Long and cold fermentation highlight the hints of fruit and lemongrass to give this white wine a delicate, clean finish. Warm vanilla aromas with black-cherry notes make up Lovers Leap’s signature merlot ($13.99), while the Sloppy Seconds red blend ($9.99) offers a light-bodied option that blends cabernet franc, merlot, chambourcin, and a dash of Microsoft stock. Each person gets a Lovers Leap wine glass to take home.
