Unlike Similac Baby Formula, which is unfairly reserved for babies and experimenting teens, wine can also be consumed by adults. Separate the towerers from the toddlers with today's Groupon: for $40, you get a private wine tasting for four at Pacific Breeze Winery in New Westminster (up to a $100 value). As an added bonus, Groupon customers can receive 5% off small wine purchases and 15% off cases purchased during their visit.
The vintners at the family-owned-and-operated garage winery handcraft their wines in small batches and age the grape nectar in high-quality French and American oak barrels to create complex and well-rounded libations. Your Groupon is good for a private tasting for up to four among the barrels and tanks at the boutique winery. During the 90-minute tastetravaganza, your guide will lead you and your entourage into the cool caverns while discussing winemaking techniques and tricks and the evolution of Pacific Breeze before you dip into the sensuous samples of the full-bodied reds and elegant whites. You'll taste the bottled releases as well as nearly finished ferments fresh from the barrels. The guide and tasting will be customized to your tastes, level of wine knowledge, celebrity crushes, and seasons to ensure every visitor or stow away has a satisfying tasting experience.
Learning about wine is important for fans of food, fans of parties, and fans of Frasier, and the best way to learn is to taste the notes and tannins of a variety of vintages on your tongue. So seize this opportunity to learn more about the elegant libation.

- What’s a vin de garagiste? French revolutionary concept, hence the name, meaning—you figured it out—“wine made in the garage”, usually by maverick winemakers without a lot of hardware and infrastructure, or even vineyards, just passion. And good grapes. I think Pacific Breeze may be unique around here in producing the first so-labelled garage wine. Here’s your chance. Good blend, most mellow; rich, ripe, robust, and full. – Jurgen Gothe, Straight
Pacific Breeze Winery
More than two decades ago, Frank Gregus and Maurice Hamilton set out on a venture as amateur home winemakers. Their cottage industry flourished into Pacific Breeze Winery in 2005, and since their first professional release in March 2007, their family-owned _garagiste_—or "garage winery"—has hauled in more than 50 international medals, including Intervin's "Best Winery of the Year" award in 2010. From grape to barrel, barrel to bottle, and bottle to kiddie pool, Pacific Breeze Winery's lavishes meticulous attention to each small-lot, handcrafted product. This diligence infuses every sip of robust reds and elegant whites, each of which begins its journey at premium vineyards across North America.
