Like throwing a proper temper tantrum, making a quality wine involves passion, foot stomping, and sulking in the cellar until you finally get what you want. Give yourself a tasteful time-out with today's Groupon: for $30, you get a private tasting and cellar tour at Lynfred Winery in Roselle (a $120 value).

The state's first winery to open after Prohibition, Lynfred Winery is overseen by Fred Koehler, who opened the venture with his wife, Lynn, in 1979. Lynfred's 24,000-square-foot facility features a tasting room accented by stained glass and velveted walls, as well as a huge, thick-walled cellar for turning fresh young juice into wise wines that dazzle drinkers with their tales of buying candy for a nickel. With today's deal, guests can bring up to 10 friends for an informative tour of the grounds followed by a private wine-cellar tour and guided tasting. Learn about the process of producing palate-pleasing potables such as Lynfred's Semillon Reserve '06, Riesling '06, or Alicante Bouschet '08, and wash down your new knowledge using the winery’s own stellar sippables. No cheeses are included with this tasting.

Lynfred Winery

With its massive selection of varietals and styles, Lynfred Winery seems determined to make something for almost any wine drinker. The cellar brims with everything from bold, spicy reds to crisp and refreshing whites, as well as fruit wines made from apples, cherries, rhubarb, and pears. The grapes arrive from vineyards throughout California and Washington state, although the rest of the fruit typically comes from a bit closer to home, including growers throughout Michigan and Wisconsin. Despite this variety, the staff's commitment to approachable, fruit-forward flavors characterizes virtually everything that the winery makes.

This dedication to easy drinking seems only natural given the winery's origins in a home basement. In 1975, Fred Koehler, along with his wife Lynn, decided to try to re-create the family wines his father and grandfather had made throughout the 1920s. The batches grew larger with each passing vintage, and, in 1979, Fred and Lynn chose to upgrade their homespun hobby into a commercial venture. Within six years, Lynfred Winery's creations began to appear in the national spotlight as they garnered awards and medals from wine competitions across the country. This attention allowed Fred to swell production even more, eventually expanding to a larger location in 1990.

Fred and Lynn's legacy continues to inspire the staff as they operate a facility that creates more than 100,000 gallons of wine each year using as many as 80 varietals. These wines appear on restaurant menus, on retail shelves, and inside fish tanks throughout the Chicagoland area.
