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 $19, you get a wine-tasting class (a $40 value) at Red Slate Wine Company on Washington.
Delve deeper into the tannin-infused barrel-of-wine knowledge with a 90-minute tasting class from a certified sommelier. Red Slate Wine Company hosts a variety of classes, such as Wine 101 for beginners and the more-advanced Wine 202, focusing on basics such as grape varieties and particular aspects of tasting such as malolactic fermentation. They also extend their wine-based education to in-depth regional wine tastings, covering the whole oenophiliac globe, from New Zealand's famous sauvignon blancs to Grecian originals and prestigious French styles. Classes typically last 1.5 hours and feature a tasting of seven wines, selected and approved by the sommelier for a certified experience in grape vampirism.
Mingle with fermentation-minded neighbors while swilling, sampling, and dipping the sponge of your brain into the wine barrel of knowledge with evening classes and personal tasting instruction. The atmosphere at Red Slate Wine Company is relaxed and unintimidating, with space for up to 32 nascent devotees of Dionysian deglutition. Call to reserve a spot in your desired class.
