What You'll Get
Welcome to Groupon, Long Island! For our inaugural deal, you get $20 worth of tapas and wine for $8 from Northport Tasting Room & Wine Cellar, located at 70 Main Street in Northport. Since this is everyone's first Groupon, allow us to briefly explain how it works.
How Groupon Works
Groupon is a combination of the words group and coupon. Each day, we offer an unbeatable deal on the best of Long Island: restaurants, spas, sporting events, theater, and more. By promising businesses a minimum number of customers, we get discounts you won't find anywhere else. We call it "collective buying power." If you want to get the deal, just click BUY before the offer ends at midnight. If the minimum number of people (20 for today's deal) sign up by the end of the day, you'll be emailed a gift certificate the next morning. You can print your Groupons or redeem them with our iPhone app. Use them whenever you want until the deal expires—today's expires in a year. If not enough people join, no one gets the deal (and you won't be charged), so invite your friends to make sure you get the discount!
After Capri Sun began creepily transforming people into amorphous metallic globules, wine rose to prominence, offering a similarly complex flavor profile without the threat of spontaneous melting. Celebrate wine, or "nature's Capri Sun," with today’s Groupon: for $8, you get $20 worth of tapas and wine from Northport Tasting Room & Wine Cellar.
Northport Tasting Room offers a lushly glowing environment for wine enthusiasts to get to know different wines anonymously, without fear of reprisal from their wine spouses. Sip and swirl a glass of Turkish Kavaklidere Cankaya for $9, or have a sweet slurp from a glass of Fritz's Riesling ($12). There’s a certified sommelier on staff to help foster flavor friendships. For the exotic tastes, sample a deep-red Alain Graillot Moroccan syrah ($13) or the Spanish Gonzalez-Suñer Mantonegro ($13). Wine flights (four 2 oz. glasses for $16) are available Sunday through Thursday.
Since it's no fun to fly on an empty stomach, sample the tapas with a cheese platter (with apple slices, bread, and olive oil, $14) or a meat platter (with bread and balsamic vinegar, $10), or order a 12-inch cheese pizza ($12, add olives, pepperoni, sausage, or prosciutto for $1 each). And since it's also no fun to eat and fly without entertainment, stop in during a live performance—upcoming artists include Tara Hack, the King Cobras, and Kristin Hoffmann.
This Groupon is valid for items off the tapas menu but not the dine-in menu, and it is not valid with Northport Tasting Room's daily specials.
