What You'll Get
Wine and cheese tastings allow people to diversify their palates in one sitting, a feat previously attainable only by cramming five frozen dinners and a variety pack of juice boxes into a blender. Savor expanding horizons with today's Groupon to Sips Cellars in Pleasant Hill. Choose between the following options:
- For $19, you get a five-cheese plate and wine tasting for two (up to a $39 value). This package includes:
- Platter of five cheeses and four meats (a $15 value)
- Two wine flights, each consisting of three three-ounce wines (up to a $24 value)
- For $25, you get $50 worth of wine and cheese from the wine shop.
The oenophiles behind Sips Cellars understand that the perfect pairing is to put people and fine wine together in one place for delectable socializing. Pairs, duos, and twosomes can gather at Sips Cellars' relaxed lounge and let a wine flight of their choice roll over their grape receptors, such as the medium-reds flight of Hopscotch sangiovese, Sparrow Hawk pinot noir, and montepulciano d'abruzzo, which all completed a truly grueling boot camp to exude deep-red hues without the assistance of a makeup artist. While nibbling exotic cheeses such as montrachet, morbier, and port-salut, along with prosciutto, salami, and pâté, indulge in a six-ounce glass of Ancient Block Fusion white, or make a grapey splash with the Cannonball merlot, then complete the sensual experience by drinking your guest's velvety glass of Rosso red while their back is turned. The wine shop also sells full bottles of vino and blocks of cheese for enjoying at home in the less social confines of a dark closet.
