What You'll Get
Grapes, much like water, naturally exist in three forms: solid, liquid, and raisin. Imbibe the fruit in its most drinkable state with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of wine and bistro-style food pairings from OC Custom Wine, located in Anaheim.
OC Custom Wine ages fruit from Napa, Sonoma, and the Central Coast for two years in French oak barrels to craft award-winning wines. Oenophiles can sip subtle sauvignon blanc, zinfandel, and syrah nectar fresh from the barrel before choosing a blend to please their palate (tastings are $10) or ordering from a menu of bistro-style food pairings that, like an ambitious glacier, shifts daily. Vine-friendly bites might include a platter heaped with international meats and cheeses ($7/person) or the Mushrooms Meritage ($11), a sautéed skillet of flavorful wild fungi carefully selected by chefs and benevolent forest elves. Guests can also opt to use their Groupon toward wine tastings alone, letting undistracted tongues lap a variety of fermented formulas and, if they're extra thirsty, point out a bottle to take home ($25–$30).
