Sampling wines has become one of man’s top recreational activities, just after contemplating infinity and napping in the fridge. Enjoy your enjoyment with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get a passport to the 2012 South Sound Wine Trail’s Red Wine & Chocolate event produced in conjunction with the Olympia Lacey Tumwater Visitor & Convention Bureau (a $60 total value). The passport includes the following:

  • Admission for the weekends of February 11–12 and 18–19
  • A tasting at each of six tasting rooms (a $30 value)
  • $5 off wine purchases at each of six locations (a $30 value)<p>

The Red Wine & Chocolate event rolls out a red carpet of indulgence over two weekends of tastings at six wineries along the South Sound Wine Trail. Oenophiles may begin their ambrosial tour at Walter Dacon to sample Washington wines of the Rhone and Mediterranean varietals, then hopscotch over to the Salida Olympia Wine Tasting Bar to sip wines made from the Spanish grape tempranillo in an earthy space with wood-beamed ceilings made from century-old, grape-bearing firs. The day’s tastings might end at Northwest Mountain Winery—where guests mouth-hug glasses of syrahs and cabs—or continue at Stottle Winery with varietals such as sangioveses. The last two stops on the trail, Madsen Family Cellars and Medicine Creek Winery, offer patrons the opportunity to relish merlots and cabernet francs. At each stop, patrons may pick the brains of the winery’s experts to learn about winemaking and any other methods of fitting 10 pounds of grapes into a 750-milliliter bottle.

South Sound Wine Trail

Six distinct wineries make up the South Sound Wine Trail. At each stop, visitors sample flights of handcrafted wines and meet the winemakers that produce them, using grapes from some of Eastern Washington's best vineyards. The award-winning wineries of the South Sound Wine Trail include, Stottle Winery, Madsen Family Cellars, Northwest Mountain Winery, Medicine Creek Winery, Scatter Creek Winery, and Walter Dacon.
