River Bend Winery - Central Business District: $20 for Two Bottles of Wine and a Tasting for You and a Friend

Like hanging out with a younger brother and his friends, drinking wine is an activity that sometimes makes people believe they’re funnier, smarter, and two feet taller than they actually are. Today’s Groupon prolongs the streak-free illusion. For $20, you’ll get a wine tasting for you and a friend of legal drinking age, as well as two bottles to take home from River Bend Winery, an up to $50 value. Located steps from downtown Louisville, River Bend houses its grapey goodness within a historical building dating back to 1880, the year of American independence.

You’ll have no problem finding a bottle that tickles your fancy at River Bend, where wine tastings and tours are available every day from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. You’ll be able to savor 14 different Kentucky grape wines that have been produced on-site, ranging from classics like chardonnay and merlot to unique options like pomegranate, rhubarb, and chocolate. While sipping away in the tasting room, you’ll catch a glimpse of River Bend’s processing facility, which is lined with aging wood barrels just like your Uncle Redbeard’s boat. One of the friendly and palate-proficient staff members will gladly answer your questions about vintage varieties or the perfect pairing for your upcoming sardine-pickling event. After you've sipped, sampled, and seduced your taste buds, you will have your choice of two bottles to bring home.

Unlike apple schnapps or a victorious Gatorade shower, wine is a slow sip, making it a more enjoyable libation. You’ll enjoy it even more if you stop at River Bend between Monday and Thursday and avoid the weekend rush. Best of all, wine can help you reduce the risk of heart disease, certain cancers, and progression of disorders such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease.

  • After a fantastic tasting we purchased several wines as gifts for our friends and clients. We'll be back soon. – vvvturtle, TripAdvisor
  • Out of the ordinary, for me at least. Very interesting place to eat and enjoy some excellent wine to go with the terrific, out of the norm, food. Nice atmosphere, very laid back service, no pressure, no hurry-up! – Peter, Google Maps
  • This place is such a hidden gem. It's absolutely the place to be in Louisville. They have so many interesting things going on throughout the week, not to mention an extensive wine list with tours and tastings… – Chef, Yahoo! Travel
