What You'll Get
After Capri Sun began creepily transforming people into amorphous metallic globules, wine rose to prominence, offering a similarly complex flavor profile without the threat of spontaneous melting. Celebrate wine, or "nature's Capri Sun," with today’s Groupon. For $15, you get $35 worth of hand-picked vintages and tapas at Pure Wine Café on Main Street in Ellicott City. Eclectic recipes marry upscale wines in a quaint and cozy setting ideal for grape-loving wedding crashers.
Pure Wine Café invites wine aficionados and casual winers alike to their welcoming space, where burnt-sienna tabletops nuzzle against modern aluminum chairs. A quiet escape from the outside world, the café focuses on providing healthy and inspired bistro cuisine to accompany the various flavor profiles of its carefully selected wines, including 2.5 oz. samples, 5 oz. glasses, and bottles (ranging $20 and up for bottles). Friendly and knowledgeable sommeliers are more than happy to educate curious customers in the ways of different wines and guide them toward their perfect liquid match. Drink in, or bring home a bottle from Pure Wine's generous stock of affordable whites, reds, and bubblies. You can also use your Groupon toward the more expensive Reserve Cellar Selections ($96¬–$135), which are an elegant choice for marking any rare occasion or Stratego victory.
Because fresh meals can accentuate the flavor profiles lurking in a bottle of 2007 Lagrein from California's Central Coast ($37), Pure Wine Café offers a delicious menu of light and healthy edibles. Sip alongside a savory helping of chestnut-honey-glazed pork tenderloin with apple-celery root slaw ($13) or candied beets in a vanilla balsamic reduction ($5) before indulging in the crispy bites of fig tapanade crostini ($8) or a smoked duck flatbread feast topped with a sweet chili gastrique, crumbled chevre, roasted shallots, and asparagus ($12).
