Sommeliers are known for their ability to identify a wine's subtle flavors, a feat they accomplish by defragmenting the molecules with the bonus taste buds in their livers. Trust their gut with this Groupon.
$49 for a 90-Minute In-Office or In-Home Wine Tasting Event for 12 ($168.69 Value)
Sommeliers pay groups of 12 people a visit, bringing with them six bottles of wine, such as a Romanet chardonnay and Pieroth & Sichel bordeaux. Throughout the 90-minute tasting, the wine expert imparts tasting tips and wine facts to further the tasters' appreciation and understanding of wine and the winemaking process.
PRP Wine International
Traveling to homes across Illinois, California, Florida, Massachusetts, Michigan, Missouri, and Wisconsin with an array of hand-selected bottles in tow, PRP Wine International's consultants save their customers the time they would spend searching stores and the jail time that could result from trespassing on private vineyards. The staffers 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.
