What You'll Get
Winemaking, like traveling through the jungle or breaking into a second-story college administration office to change your grade in Embroidery 101, is an art form entirely dependent on successful vine-wrangling. Discover plant-based potables with today's Groupon: for $16, you get a wine tasting for two, a bottle of wine of your choice, and two wine glasses at Strebel Creek Vineyard (up to a $33.99 value). Strebel Creek Vineyard is open on Fridays from 1 p.m.–5 p.m., on Saturdays from 10 a.m.–5 p.m., and on Sundays from 2 p.m.–5 p.m.
Family-owned-and-operated, Strebel Creek Vineyard produces and peddles its wines from a renovated 100-year-old barn. Customers can beckon their inner Bacchus with a bottle ($9.99–$18.99 each) from the vineyard's ample array of wines. Relish the red refreshment of cabernet sauvignon, red zinfandel, syrah, and merlot, or wrap your tongue in the white noise of chardonnay, gewürztraminer, or white zinfandel, among many other varieties. Included in this deal is a wine tasting for two, as well as two wine glasses ($7.50 each) to prevent embarrassing further drinking-from-shoe episodes.
Wine enthusiasts can take their selection home for swigging and sipping in the privacy of their own tree houses, or they can opt for an equally environmental setting by pulling up a seat on Strebel Creek Vineyard's creek-side patio. Toast to humankind's continued dominance over grapes with the fermented flavors of Strebel Creek Vineyard.

About Strebel Creek Vineyard
After a lifetime of practice as an ob-gyn and 10 years as an amateur winemaker, Gary Strebel’s vinting hobby hit a bump in the road: His fermenting creations were taking up too much space in the kitchen, and his wife, Sherry, was tired of the mess. After a lengthy licensing process, Gary moved his operation into the barn, first taking his wines to the public in 2007. The now-renovated hundred-year-old barn currently serves as both a winery and gift shop, which frees the Strebels’ kitchen space for the family and frees visitors from having to wedge themselves between the refrigerator and the dishwasher. In addition to its overflowing wine racks, the gift shop also fills its rustic bounds with paraphernalia such as glasses, billfolds, jewelry, scarves and purses, and Cowboy and Sooner memorabilia.
