Many famous linguists consider cellar door the most beautiful phrase in the English language—a smaller contingent favors countermand that jetpack, monkey navigator. Open the cellar door into the finely structured world of wine appreciation with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of fine wine and light fare at the Savvy Cellar Wine Bar & Wine Shop in Mountain View.
Savvy Cellar offers high quality bottles, wine flights, and delectable dineables from a new menu every month. Sip by the glass from selections such as the house-made pomegranate bellini ($9), or the 2005 Domaine Vigneau-Chevreau Vouvray Moelleux ($9). Impress vinicultural friends and win over grape-loving enemies with a one of the cellar's bottles of "Bucket List" premiums such as rare 2004 Bodegas y Viñedos "Heras Cordon" Rioja Reserva, a wine whose production is considerably more limited than its name ($68). Pair pulls of Ken Forester Chenin Blanc and Riesling with noshes like smoked salmon lox with capers ($10) or nibbles from an artisan cheese board ($15).
While the wines are all top-notch, the main reason people come to Savvy Cellar is for expert guidance in a comfortable setting. Whichever bottle you adopt, Savvy Cellar's savvy sommeliers will be there to chat with you about each wine, offer tasting pointers, and highlight subtle undertones that many unseasoned palates overlook. They'll also correct common rookie mistakes, such as attempting to drink a sandwich. Armed with this new expert knowledge and experience, even the most taste-deaf aficionado will be able to purchase a wine that wows the entire family at this year's holiday dinner.
