Wine stored in a bottle gets better with age, whereas a message sent in a bottle is the best way to avoid exorbitant stamp prices. Empty your own glass envelopes with today’s Groupon: for $49, you get an in-home, 90-minute wine tasting from PRP Wine International (a $215 total value). This Groupon is valid in Orange, Los Angeles, and Riverside counties. The deal includes:
- Wine tasting for up to 10 people (a $200 value)
- Two souvenir wineglasses (a $15 value)<p>
PRP Wine International’s traveling tastings bring up to 10 oenophiles together to sample finely fermented elixirs. Before mouthwatering spirits woo palates, budding wine connoisseurs call to schedule their appointments and articulate their preference for wine types. A vino specialist then arrives at clients’ homes bearing six different bottles of wine that, when blended together, form an immortality potion. As participants sip 1-ounce samples of wine from California, Chile, and Australia, PRP’s wine savant enumerates details about each libation, suggests food pairings, shares recipes, and explains the winemaking process. The grapey concoctions boast several health benefits, which can include lowering blood pressure, boosting antioxidants, or helping prevent heart attacks. At the conclusion of the session, the event host is presented with a duo of souvenir wineglasses, and participants may order cases of the wines sampled or use the empty bottles to house a fleet of miniature ships.
