Grape juice magically transforms into wine in the same way milk becomes cheese and a 1972 Dodge Dart becomes an even older 1972 Dodge Dart. Tipple the tasty transformation with today's Groupon: For $10, you get a VIP wine tour, tasting, and food-pairing demonstration at Sand Castle Winery (a $20 value) located in Erwinna. Founded by Slovakian wine makers in the '80s, Sand Castle Winery makes all its wines from 100% vinifera grapes planted in the bountiful Delaware River region, with a 7,000-square-foot wine cellar and castle that overlooks its fermented dominion. This deal gets you an extensive two-hour tour of Sand Castle Winery's facility and vineyards, where you'll get to sample the palate-pleasing wines; enjoy food pairings such as cheeses, herbs, and chocolates; and explore the castle with its 15-mile views, 30-feet underground wine cellar, and Silvan Elves manning the north tower with bows at the ready. Tours are led by Joseph Maxian and other Sandcastle winemakers, who use insightful information with a dash of wit to elucidate how their grapes become wines, including the subtly sweet 2005 Johannisberg Riesling and the strawberry-tinged 2007 Pinot Noir.


Sand Castle Winery was recently featured on FYI Philly's segment on the Bucks County Wine Trail. Three TripAdvisors give it an average of four owl eyes and five Yelpers give it a 3.5-star average:

  • The Winery offers educational wine tastings and tours with food samples such as cheeses, herbs, chocolates and fresh fruits and suggest food pairings to prepare in your own kitchen. – luke11, TripAdvisor
  • Wines have been consistently good. Tasting fees are reasonable. Have enjoyed this place every time we have been ¬– Anthony T., Yelp

Sand Castle Winery

Planted by hand in the 1980's, 56,000 special seedlings spiral toward the sun, spawning bundles of grapes that wait to be plucked and transformed into casks of delicious libations. The owners of the elegant winery and castle welcome guests to absorb the sight of the scenic vineyard, and step into the cool, climate-controlled cellar, before heading to the tasting room to sample wine. Large tasting rooms and an outdoor pavilion can also host private events on the regal grounds.

The winery is beautiful and the owners are a delight. I enjoyed their stories about the winery and each wine. The food and wine pairings were fantastic and i really enjoyed it. I recently purchased another Groupon and can't wait to go back.
