What You'll Get
Grapes are versatile, boisterous fruits whose vines provide romantic bucolic imagery and an excellent way to communicate with Marvin Gaye. Explore multipurpose plant-based bounty with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get two glasses of wine and a meat and cheese plate for two, plus 10% off any bottle of wine, at Sugar Clay Winery & Vineyards in Thurman (up to a $21 value).
Sugar Clay owners, vintners, and winemakers Frank and Amy Faust shake up palates with handcrafted pours and other treats during tastings. Visitors can choose from nearly a dozen releases for their two full pours (up to a $10 value) and discounted bottle, such as a clean, pineapple-kissed German-style edelweiss with a light caramel finish, Sugar Clay's most popular white ($16/bottle). The Faust Haus Rosa, a catawba grape nostril-wowwer, starts with a bouquet of strawberries and roses and ends with hints of spices and future honeymoons ($13/bottle). Bandana Red, the winery’s dark star, soothes mouths with a velvety mélange of deChaunac and marechal foch grapes and notes of dried cherries and blackberries ($15/bottle). A tray of gastro-intelligent bites, with ham, salami, cheeses, veggies, and french bread, complements the day’s toasts (an $11 value).
Unlike tequila shots and shotgunned root-beer floats, wine is a slow sip, making it a more enjoyable libation to enjoy on the six-acre vineyard set amidst the Loess Hills cedar trees and wildlife, with sweeping views of the valley beyond. Inside the relaxed tasting room with a tree-house feel, guests enjoy five complimentary tastes in addition to two full pours. Outside, a roomy deck opens seasonally, and live music transforms sipping mood-makers into hip-shakers on Sundays.
