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 $10, you get $20 worth of wine from Maratene’s Fine Wine & Spirits in Waldwick. This Groupon is not valid toward the purchase of sparkling or dessert wines.
Armed with an extensive knowledge of fine wines and an unpretentious approach, owner Gregg Burke pairs oenophiles with their dream potables in his 75-year-old wine shop. A bottle of Truchard cabernet sauvignon ($24.99) charms palates with its full body and show-stopping tap-dance routines, and the Castle Rock pinot noir ($9.99) brings out the flavor of a sumptuous steak dinner. The store boasts an ever-expanding selection of wines from various world regions, from Italy's Paolo Scavino Vin Tavola 2010 ($15.99) to California’s Cupcake chardonnay ($9.99).
