Thanks to cartoons, many Americans believe that the correct way to taste wine is to take a sip, then witness something so shocking that it causes them to involuntarily expectorate. Skip the spit takes and sample wine correctly with today's Groupon: for $35, you get a one-year membership to Club Nectar at the Nectar Tasting Room on Stevens and Main (a $75 value). Shared by five wineries, the Nectar Tasting Room boasts 30 aperitifs within its 2,000 square foot location. Anelare Winery, Hard Row to Hoe Vineyards, Northwest Cellars, Skylite Cellars, and Terra Blanca Winery join forces to delight discerning olfactory glands and stimulate sophisticated and sophomoric palettes alike. Unlike tequila shots and shotgunned root beer floats, wine is a slow sip, making it a more enjoyable libation. A Club Nectar membership grants 12 months of exclusive deals and savings, including complimentary tasting room flights ($5 regularly), $1 off all glass pours, 10% off bottle purchases, and 15% off case purchases. Additionally, members receive half off the weekly Final Sip afterhours party, where vinous patrons taste through the iPad menu of open wine as the weekend showcase comes to a close. Live music on Fridays and Saturdays adds flavor, like salsa at a robot mixer, to the modern and inviting atmosphere.
Nectar Tasting Room
At Nectar Tasting Room, five local wineries—Anelare Winery, Coyote Canyon, Northwest Cellars, Skylite Cellars, and Terra Blanca Winery—bring their award-winning pours to one downtown venue. To pair bites with sips, the tasting room’s wine experts and chefs collaborate on a menu of appetizers and desserts that accentuate the nuances of their 40-some wines. Within the 3,000-square-foot dining space, guests are greeted with the facility’s inner warmth brought on by a decor of hardwood floors, brick accents, and walls of windows. In addition to titillating guests' palates, the tasting room's team also organizes wine tours to explore Spokane's nearly 20 wineries and oversees several wine clubs that give members exclusive benefits, such as grapes autographed by each winery's master vintner.
