True wine connoisseurs teach themselves to distinguish varietals, identify flawed bottles, and cry pure chardonnay. Become one with the grape with today's Groupon: for $15, you get a wine tasting for two at Su Vino Winery in Scottsdale (up to a $32.99 total value). The wine tasting includes:
- Two wine flights of five tastes each (a $20 value)
- A shared appetizer (up to a $12.99 value)
The shelves at Su Vino Winery's tasting bar brim with highly acclaimed wines, from which customers select to create their own five-taste flights. The winery's white wines range from the delicate citrus notes of the pinot grigio to the rounded, oak-kissed flavors of its barrel-aged chardonnay. Red wines include the shy, food-friendly pinot noir as well as the robust, single varietal cabernet franc, which swarms palates and carpet fibers alike with notes of ripe blueberries and raspberries. As guests sip and toast, hunger pangs relent under the satiating siege of such appetizers as warmed brie with fruit preserves or stuffed strawberries bursting with mascarpone cheese. Like knowledge of the jet stream’s direction of flow, the winery’s flavor gurus can assist in designing smooth flights.

Su Vino Winery
Italian for "your wine," Su Vino doesn't only curate a lineup of award-winning varietals, it also crafts custom wines to suit even the most discerning palates. Inside an eye-catching tasting room, Su Vino Winery pairs glasses and bottles of its vintages with a menu of light appetizers and sensuous desserts. Red wines such as the jam-flavored cabernet sauvignon/merlot blend and peppery zinfandel pour crimson into tasting glasses, whereas white wines—including the tongue-twisting gewürztraminer—immerse taste buds in crisp, off-dry tones. They also open their bottle-lined space to guests interested in hosting a birthday party, bridal shower, or scared-straight event for delinquent grapes.
