To function properly, the human body requires a steady stream of nutrients, sunlight, and compliments from other species about its opposable thumbs. Use your bendable digits to provide yourself with nutrients with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of cheese boards, dips, bites, and sweets at Santé Wine Bar. This Groupon is not valid for alcohol.
Housed in the historic Grove Arcade building, Santé Wine Bar sweeps taste buds on an appetizing adventure with a scrumptious selection of cheeses, dips, and desserts to savor solo or pair with their award-winning wines, which are not included in this Groupon. Chomp on turophile temptations such as the goat-cheese board ($18) or the Mediterranean board, a panoply of spanish and italian cheeses such as manchego, fontina, and pecorino served with apricots and olives ($20).
Fresh-made dips include bruschetta, smoky chipotle-and-cilantro hummus, and chunky pesto, a piquant pool of ricotta, parmesan, and fresh basil in which baguette slices and crackers can perfect their cannonballs or practice for an upcoming lifeguard examination ($5). Sate sweeter palates with decadent desserts such as the chocolate flight, eight morsels of hand-hewn carenero dark chocolate with culinary accompaniment from trusty sidekicks, including organic vanilla and chipotle chili ($5).
Walls rich with deep maroon and bright chartreuse radiate the warmth of Italian vineyards onto the comfortable sofas in Santé's candlelit interior. An amicable and knowledgeable staff shares its vintage vocabulary at frequent events such as Flight Night, during which guests can taste test affordable wines (not included with your Groupon) while reenacting the Wright Brothers' first flight with winged napkins and toothpick propellers.
