Thanks to cartoons, many Americans believe that the correct way to taste wine is to take a sip, then witness something so shocking that it causes them to involuntarily expectorate. Skip the spit takes and sample wine correctly with today's Groupon to Serendipity Wines & Spirits on the Upper East Side. Choose one of the following options:
- For $25, you get one bottle of red wine from the Skyline Oak Tree Series, a private wine tasting for two, a set of three handcrafted Phillips G. Pereira wine-glass charms, a choice of one scented candle ($10), and a 15% discount on your next purchase (a $94 value).
- For $50, you get two bottles of red wine from the Skyline Oak Tree Series, a private wine tasting for four, a set of three handcrafted Phillips G. Pereira wine-glass charms, a choice of one scented candle ($10), and a 15% discount on your next purchase (a $164 value).
- For $30, you get a signed bottle of Phillips-Pereira Designer Wine (signed by Peter Pereira) and a private wine tasting for two (a Groupon special).
Serendipity's staff has purpled its lips with years of wine experience, and its in-house sommelier, Barbara D'Antonio, can match the novices and connoisseurs alike to the bottles of fermented fruit that line the neighborhood boutique's walls. She'll introduce you to the shop's finest grape distillates during a private tasting, highlighting the nuances and endearing giggle of each vino varietal as you kick back in the majestically downy green armchairs and rub your feet along the thick rug. Whether you choose to sip in the company of your vaudeville act's screwball or the rest of your barbershop quartet, you'll get to stock your home cellar with a red wine from the Skyline Oak Tree Series ($20), a private label specially selected by Barbara. And in a Groupon-exclusive deal, you can cart home one of 672 bottles of Phillips-Pereira Designer Wine ($80) hand-signed by Phillips G. Pereira, along with a confirmed reservation to purchase the next Phillips-Pereira designer-bottle selection when series number two debuts. Enjoy the refinement of one of the world's oldest beverages amid the chandeliers and wooden floors of Serendipity's specialty store with today's Groupon.
