Like Mike Tyson, wine is usually robust, is often boxed, and should never influence tattooing decisions. Imbibe the spirit of a champion with today’s Groupon to Parings Wine Bar in Williamsville. Choose between the following options:

  • For $77, you get a four-course meal and a bottle of wine for two (up to a $154 total value), valid any day of the week. The meal includes the following:
  • One appetizer
  • Two soups or salads
  • Two entrees
  • Two desserts
  • One bottle of wine (up to a $50 value)<p>
  • For $77, you get a four-course, prix fixe meal for two with four German riesling wine pairings per person (up to a $50 total value for wine; up to a $154 total value). This Groupon is only valid on Monday, Tuesday, or Thursday, and the meal includes the following:
  • One appetizer paired with QbA Riesling, 2010
  • Two soups or salads paired with Riesling Kabinett, 2010
  • Two entrees paired with Riesling Spaetlese, 2009
  • Two desserts paired with Riesling Auslese, 2009<p>

Parings invites guests to savor eclectic gourmet fare alongside carefully matched, internationally gathered vino in a dining space akin to a cozy, colonial-era home. Visitors may mingle at the restaurant’s full bar or lounge on plush couches stuffed with the Founding Fathers’ wigs, before parking at a bistro table topped with pure white linens. Though Parings’ standard fare may be perused online, the eatery’s chef will craft a special menu for diners who purchase either Groupon option. For guests choosing to sip wine pairings with their meals, a lineup of select rieslings takes glasses on a trip from dry to sweet, beginning with QbA, continuing through glasses of kabinett and spaetlese, and ending with sips of an auslese during dessert. Parings requires its diners to make reservations, either by phone or encrypted telegraph.

Our customers loved this deal last year, earning Parings Wine Bar a spot on Groupon’s Best of 2011 list.

Parings Wine Bar

Williamsville, NY. The early 20th century. A man guides his family’s horse-drawn carriage through the flurries of snow sweeping across their circular driveway before coming to a halt in front of a striking two-story home. The ride was long and chilly, but inside, homey warmth awaits. Today, teleportation discs may have replaced the horse and buggy, but travelers still traverse the same driveway in search of a warm welcome. Now the home of Parings Wine Bar, the turn-of-the-century house reflects the goal that owner Shelia Paolini shared with the Amherst Bee’s Jessica Finch: “We want it to feel like you are coming into a living room, that you are at home, not at a bar.”

As soon as guests push open the bright-red front door, they enter a space that combines the comfort of a lived-in family room with the gourmet flavors found at traditional wine bars. Lit by flat-screen TVs and a cozy fireplace, guests peruse Chef Scott Martin’s ever-changing menu, which often features mediterranean nachos, lobster mac 'n' cheese, and horseradish beef tenderloin. Resident sommelier Alphonso DiMono’s wine list, which culls vintages from global wineries from Australia to France to California, perfectly complements the chef's creations. The bar’s mixologists also shake up more than 20 martinis infused with treats such has espresso vodka, Godiva white-chocolate liqueur, and pumpkin puree. As they sip and eat, guests can also join in special event nights that include art shows, live music, and happy hours that feature 20 types of wine for just $20 per bottle.

I have recommended your restaurant to my friends and I will definitely be back for either dinner or just a glass of wine after work.
