To make un-fine wine, simply place grapes beneath a silk pillow, repeatedly mash your head against it, and then wring the pillowcase into a nearby mouth. Taste traditionally produced fine wines with today’s Groupon: for $25, you get a wine tasting (a $54.50 value) from PRP Wine International on St. Johns Bluff Road South. Flick a speck of sticky rice at your computer screen to settle on one of the following three dates:
- Thursday, August 19—by appointment only
- Friday, August 20—4 p.m. to 8 p.m.
- Saturday, August 21—12 p.m. to 6 p.m.
Stocking its shelves with top-quality wines from around the world, PRP Wine International labors to spread the culture of wine to novice oenophiles and practiced imbibers alike. During these three tasting events, wine enthusiasts will have the opportunity to sample between 20 to 25 different bottles of vino averaging $20 per bottle, as well as three or four premium selections valued at over $30 each. Featured wines will be exclusive to PRP Wine International and won’t be available in a store near you, even if you spend days trying to will them into existence. While visitors expand their grapey knowledge via the wellspring of wine wisdom proffered by at least three attending wine consultants, light appetizers materialize to keep palates clean and prepped for the next mini-flood of flavor.
PRP Wine International strives to use wine as a building block for improving relationships with its clients and increasing the quality of their lives. With today’s deal, wine-curious consumers can educate themselves on the healthy benefits of wine imbibery and learn how to perfectly pair swigs with snacks.
This Groupon is not valid with other offers. Customers must be 21 or older to purchase and to attend the wine tasting.
PRP Wine International
Traveling to homes across Illinois, California, Florida, Michigan, Missouri, and Wisconsin with an array of hand-selected bottles in tow, the knowledgable consultants of PRP Wine International save their customers the time they would spend searching stores and the jail time that could result from trespassing on private vineyards. The staffers of this private wine company spend almost every day of the year unearthing the best bottles across the United States, Europe, Australia, South America, and South Africa, and then present their selections to eager palates at homes, private clubs, and hotel suites during private tastings and special events. As the wine spills forth into glasses, the consultants impart background information on the wines, share pairing ideas, and encourage guests to ask any questions they might be embarrassed to ask at restaurants, such as, “How do you pronounce pinot noir?” or “Where is the giant laser that transforms the grapes into wine?” As the evening progresses, conversations will also cover grape varieties and facts about specific growing regions.
