Grape juice magically transforms into wine in the same way milk becomes cheese and a 1972 Dodge Dart becomes an even older 1972 Dodge Dart. Tipple the tasty transformation with today's Groupon: for $199, you get a wine-tasting tour for two ($159 value per person) and wine gift set (an $89 value) from Malibu Grapes (a $407 total value). Pickup and drop-off is arranged when booking the tour.
The Malibu Wine Trail Tour takes grape gadabouts, places them in the comfy confines of a luxury vehicle, and whisks them away on a six-hour jaunt through the picturesque terrain of Malibu, Santa Monica, and the Westlake Village/Agoura areas. Appease recalcitrant eyeballs with scenic views of the surf and the gorgeous mountain canyons while en route to three tasting rooms, where an array of lush local wines awaits visitor head-holes. Lunch paired with its ideal grape mate is included during the day, as is a romance gift set of a bottle of local wine, wine glasses, and a box of chocolates (an $89 value), which can be relished together by lovers or barely tolerated office acquaintances. Each tour-taker receives a complimentary personal-tasting passport that will bestow wine purchase discounts on the tour. The tour schedule and booking information is available online for perpetually busy beekeepers and overwhelmed warlocks.

Malibu Discovery Tours
Malibu Discovery Tours' experienced guides shepherd locals and visitors on various tours of the salt-air scenery around Malibu’s coasts and wineries. As guests summit mountains at sunrise, the guides point out celebrity mansions, exquisite wildlife, and the laundromats of Hollywood elites. In between views of the ocean and passes through mountain landscapes, tour groups can watch the rolling vineyards of local wine country and look for amorous initial carvings by a teenage John Adams on Old Malibu's historic building façades.
