The year a wine was produced can dramatically increase its value, especially if it came from an era when bottles were still made from leopard pelt. Taste the past with this Groupon.

Wine and Spirit Warehouse
Vast rows of bottles stretch throughout the confines of Wine and Spirit Warehouse, where an international spread of wines, a full roster of spirits, and both domestic and imported beers create happy indecision making among visitors. In addition to what the shop calls day-to-day wines, which often sell for $9.99 or less, special-occasion and collector’s vintages from as far back as 1982 also line the shelves. At the store’s wine station, up to eight wines are available to taste prior to purchase and are also sold by the glass. Lounging guests are encouraged to bring their own lunches to accompany their sips, which can be enjoyed in the seating area. Elsewhere, amid burgundy walls, a long, gleaming table seats more than a dozen people in the handsomely furnished tasting room, where wine gurus lead in-depth classes and free tastings on Fridays and Saturdays that feature a different vineyard each weekend.
