Attending a wine tasting is one of the easiest ways to cultivate a refined palate, just ahead of snacking on escargot and behind savoring a roasted croquet ball. Strengthen your senses with today’s Groupon: for $20, you get a wine-tasting package for two at Napa Valley Toffee Company (a $44 value). The package includes:
- Wine tasting for two (a $24 value)
- $20 credit toward wine, toffee, chocolate, coffee, and tea
The oenophiles at Napa Valley Toffee Company satiate cravings for local flavors with tastings of Napa-produced wines and luscious homemade chocolates. Synchronized sippers can indulge in a hodgepodge of five red and white nectars, each harvested from Napa-grown grapes, bottled by local wineries, and approved by the California Raisins. Though wine flights vary by tasting, guests can expect to nourish their palates with gulps from small case lots and nibbles from local vendors, such as Napa Farmhouse 1885, and Verve Coffee of Santa Cruz. Before heading home to wash off purple handlebar mustaches, sippers can treat themselves to $20 worth of goodies from the shop, where bottles of 2009 sauvignon blanc ($20) and Rescue Red ($15) hobnob with eight-ounce boxes of house-made chocolates ($11) and Drink the Leaf loose-leaf tea.
Throughout the sip session, guests can relax in Napa Valley Toffee Company’s comfortable and elegant space, adorned with sleek marble countertops and rustic wooden shelves. A full coffee and tea bar nurses caffeine needs, and boxes of the shop’s specialty truffles and chocolates satisfy sugar cravings like a farm-raised piñata.
