Wine is a product of grapes, yeast, and time, which explains why most varietals boast a subtle clocky flavor. Sip some time-honored juices with today's Groupon: for $20, you get a wine and chocolate pairing for two at Rutherford Ranch Winery in St. Helena (a $50 value).

Rutherford Ranch Winery's team of vintners transforms 100% certified-organic grapes into a medley of wines showcasing the abilities of California's terroir. The chocolate and wine pairings introduce taste buds and olfactory antennae to five Rutherford wines and four chocolates crafted by a local artisan chocolatier. As customers sample a preselected variety of reds and whites, experienced staff members answer questions and politely deflect requests for congratulatory hugs.

Tastings are held in Rutherford Ranch's Cabernet Room, where guests can sink into overstuffed sofas to sip wine in comfort before striking out to explore the property. When weather permits, tasters can tour the winery's vineyard, gaze up through the branches of century-old olive trees, or view a live cork tree tasked with keeping fresh the millions of gallons of wine just beneath the earth's crust. Guests who look closely enough may spot owl boxes, indigenous plants, and photovoltaic cells used to keep the winery sustainable and ensure that wine is produced with respect for the land and the environment.

Rutherford Ranch Winery

Rutherford Ranch Winery's team of vintners transforms grapes into wines that showcase the abilities of California's terroir. As a testament to their efforts and three generations of family ownership, the winery garnered the 2012 Family-Owned Winery of the Year award at the New York International Wine Competition. Several of their varietals were winners as well, including the cabernet sauvignon, a blend that bewilders palates with notes of french vanilla, blackberry, and cocoa powder.
