Every summer, grapes find sanctuary in the barrels of dark cellars, opting to become tasty wines rather than be scooped up by a cereal-decorating sun that mercilessly shriveled their brethren. Sip the fruits of a grape escape with today's Groupon: for $20, you get two wine flights (up to a $38 value) with either one small plate (up to a $10 value) or three bruschetta-bar selections (an $8 value) at Oak Wine Bar in Brooklyn.
Oak Wine Bar's vintage experts select a balanced portfolio of wines to complement a seasonal menu packed with local and organic ingredients. Oenophiles savor the finer notes of various flights including the Summer of Riesling's ($19) tribute to its namesake grape or a white blend ($15) perfect for fledgling ghosts donning rented sheets. Harmoniously flavored small plates feature zesty orange-thyme-marinated olives ($5) as well as a twist on a pub classic with pulled-pork sliders dressed with shaved parmesan and cool arugula ($9). Triplicate bruschetta-bar selections such as ricotta and fig jam, truffle mousse pate, or a gorgonzola with candied bacon distract disagreeing taste buds from pushing each other into gnashing teeth.
Exposed brick walls and wood floors highlight a corridor of displayed wines and flower-topped tables. Outside on the tree-covered patio, crimson walls hides the effects of overzealous swirling.
