Grapes, much like water, naturally exist in three forms: solid, liquid, and raisin. Imbibe the fruit's most drinkable state with today's Groupon: for $13, you get a wine tasting for two (a $10 value) and a bottle of wine (up to a $19.99 value) at Stone Garden Vineyards inside Vino Piazza in Lockeford (up to a $29.99 total value).
Cultivating the artistic traditions passed on from ancestral ghosts, Stone Garden Vineyards diversifies the Vino Piazza micro-winery patio by being one of the largest minority-owned wineries in the country. Wine tastings entreat novice and sommelier tongues alike with reds and whites that blend the fruity flavors of Lockeford's rich soils into a decadently filled beaker. Swivel a bounty of loose drips from a bottle of cabernet sauvignon as blackberry and plum flavors dance down your tongue, holding a loose séance to call ripe tannins into your nostrils ($5.95). For white zinfandel fanatics in search of lovable sibling, the white merlot empties its pockets of berry notes and wrinkled slurpee receipts before hanging its sun-ripened jacket out to dry ($5.95).
