True wine connoisseurs teach themselves to distinguish varietals, identify flawed bottles, and cry pure chardonnay. Become one with the grape with today's Groupon: for $49, you get a private, in-home wine tasting from PRP Wine International (up to a $150 value).
A consultant from PRP Wine International totes transcontinental grape concoctions to abodes for 60- to 90-minute tastings that can accommodate up to 10 guests and enlightens budding oenophiles about wine in the comfort of their homes. Before the event, the consultant helps hosts choose six libations from PRP Wine International’s massive selection of red, white, and sparkling wines by spinning around in a circle really fast and pointing. Partygoers then wash their palates with floods of new, distinct flavors as the consultant dispenses factoids on the evening’s pours and suggests food pairings for each vino. Consultants also answer any questions about proper storage, the winemaking process, or model-ship building.
PRP Wine International
PRP Wine International's experts carefully select each bottle in their inventory from all corners of the globe and ship them directly to patrons’ doorsteps. They collect from vineyards in Germany, Hungary, Italy, and Australia as well as stockpiling an array of Spanish wines such as Vega del Geroa rioja, a maze of smoke and berries. Unique offerings include celebratory sparkling wines with gold flakes, and all are available through an online shop, private tastings conducted in clients' homes, or special tasting events.
Although wine is their specialty, PRP also deals wine-related gifts such as etched stemware, bottles, and personalized coasters. They can customize labels for special events such as weddings, birthdays, or a yacht's first bath, and they can seal bottles with a hand-dipped wax seal.
