Wine connoisseurs assert that novice tasters should never pair red wine with fish, white wine with red meat, or excessive wine with jury duty. Lap up today's Groupon in moderate proportions: for $10, you get a wine tasting for two (a $20 value), plus 10% off merchandise at Saucelito Canyon in San Luis Obispo.
Dating back to 1880, the vintners at Saucelito Canyon have mined vines to produce and store a cache of wines, specifically fine zinfandels. The wine tasting for two grants patrons a suite of seven grapey libations from the winery. While sitting in the tasting room, vino vacationers can sip wines such as a light-bodied 2009 zinfandel Backroads, which evokes touches of strawberry, red licorice, and Redd Foxx. Or feel free to retreat the outdoor patio and lawn areas while imbibing a 2009 cote de blanc. The tasting menu can also shower stemmed glasses with 2008 tempranillo and a 2009 sauvage blanc, both of which greet tongues with bold, crisp flavors.
