Like choosing a prom date, choosing a favorite wine necessitates sampling a variety to determine which one will produce the nicest bouquet. Enjoy the fruits of competitive courting with today’s Groupon: for $25, you get a wine-tasting experience for two at Sorelle Winery in Stockton (a $54 total value). The experience includes:
- Wine tasting and chocolate sampling for two (a $10 value)

The vintners of Sorelle Winery, established on the historic Dodge Estate, curate its original 1866 home, tend to their vineyard, and craft a collection of choice vintages. Couples seated in the wood-walled tasting room sip from crimson and amber glasses, comparing flavors, aromas, and who can spit-take the farthest. Lush lawns and low trees surround the outdoor patio, where morsels of chocolate coat taste buds in luscious sweetness and highlight the subtle tones of their paired wines. Two bottles of the winery’s works discreetly follow each pair home, the pinot grigio bringing citrus notes and a crisp finish to palates, and its sangiovese-reserve cousin rife with berry flavors.

The family of vintners at Sorelle Winery, established on the historic Dodge Estate, curate its original 1866 home, tend to their vineyard, and ferment a collection of choice vintages. Though in its nascence, the winery has already taken home a gold medal from the San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition for its 2009 sangiovese. Inside, the wood-walled tasting room invites couples to sip from crimson and amber glasses, comparing flavors, aromas, and who can spit-take the farthest. Lush lawns and low trees surround the outdoor patio, which grants views of the historic Dodge House property, a land once roamed by Native Americans, Spanish conquistadors, and horses with a nose for a good sangiovese.
