Like highway shootouts and cross-country tickle fights, wine tasting is more successful when someone else is driving. Go to the grapevines with today's Groupon: for $159, you get a four-hour wine-country excursion in a Lincoln town car from Quality Limo (a $295 total value). The Groupon is valid for up to four passengers, and includes $20 worth of wine and bistro fare at Carpe Diem Wine Bar. Upon redemption, Groupon buyers may purchase additional limo service at a rate of $55 per hour.
With Quality Limo’s trusty driver, up to four wine-country day-trippers slide into luxurious leather upholstery in the private Lincoln town car, nodding to the tunes on the CD stereo system while the car gets closer to Napa's eye-catching vineyards, mouthwatering wineries, and saxophone-playing raisins. Bottle-based excursions visit the Carpe Diem Wine Bar to pair flights of three wine-director-selected varietals ($13–$15) or full glasses ($8–$16) with a range of small bites such as mushrooms stuffed with crab, scallion, and bacon ($8). Visitors can also introduce taste buds to more filling bistro fare such as hoisin pulled-pork lettuce wraps ($13). The convenience of a personal driver allows vintage votaries to taste as many varieties as they desire.
