What You'll Get
Thanks to cartoons, many Americans believe that the correct way to taste wine is to take a sip, then witness something so shocking that it causes them to involuntarily expectorate. Skip the spit takes and sample wine correctly with today's Groupon: for $35, you get a Saturday wine tasting and rose garden tour at Renaissance Winery in Oregon House (up to a $70 value). This Groupon also gets you 10% off on bottles of wine purchased on the day of your visit.
Renaissance Winery, a picturesque mountain vineyard roughly 2,000 feet into the Sierra Foothills, crafts estate-bottled wines in a traditional European-style focusing on the Bordeaux and Rhone family of varietals. The Wine and Roses Tasting, gives wine enthusiasts the opportunity to sip organically made pours and stroll through two European-style rose gardens fashioned after La Roserie Bagatelle in Paris. The flora-farms are interspersed with fountains, French street lamps, street vendors peddling French street lamps, and the aromatic blossoms of more than 300 types of roses. Renaissance's tasting room is lake-adjacent for serene views of water reflecting clouds that look like Babe Ruth.
