Many people are intimidated by wine's subtle flavors and endless varieties, but did you know that it's actually just juice made from vodka-infused grapes? Learn other things my cousin told me about with this Groupon.
$99 for a Brew-on-Premises Winemaking Kit Yielding 23 Litres of Wine (Up to $199 Value)
Under the guidance of a knowledgeable wine expert, visitors create their own 23-litre batch, which equates to 30 750-milliliter bottles, of French cabernet sauvignon, Australian shiraz, Washington merlot, white German Gewtraminer, or Italian pinot grigio. After leaving their crushed grapes to ferment for an eight-week period, guests return to the winery for 30- to 45-minute bottling, labeling, and corking sessions. Groupon customers will also receive a $20 gift card to use toward future beer making.
Purple Castle Brewing
At Purple Castle Brewing's 4,300-square foot brew house, aspiring vintners create their own delicious red and white wines during brewing, bottling, labeling, and corking sessions. Amid rustic wooden barrels and shiny metal vats, seasoned wine experts teach visitors how to ferment, bottle, mature, and kennel-train a batch of fine wine. Patrons crush flavor-filled grapes such as an off-dry German gewtraminer or a rich Australian shiraz, crafting their own labels to slap on their handmade potables. Each 23-litre batch fills up to 30 750 mL bottles and lasts for up to two years, supplying amateur winesmiths with a good start to a collection or plenty of thoughtful gift ideas for any occasion.
