For $40, today’s deal gets you a wine tasting and behind-the-scenes tour package for two at Superior Estates Winery, located in Superior, about 125 miles southwest of Lincoln (an $80 value). This Groupon expires on November 28, 2010.
Superior Estates Winery grows a myriad of delectable Midwestern varietals in its two Republican River Valley vineyards. Sample five of the estates' meticulously crafted wines, such as the Dry St. Vincent, which has soft, buttery flavors, or the Dry Vignoles, which delights taste buddies with honey and tropical-fruit aromas. With grapes including chardonel, chancellor, traminette, marechal foch, cayuga white, and catawba in its fermented arsenal, Superior Estates has a taste superb for both dinner with a loved one or breakfast deep in a coal mine. While you taste, a grape-savvy guide will explain each wine and recommend recipes to pair with the drink. Then, fully wine-wooed, you'll receive one bottle of your choice, plus two etched glasses.
This deal also includes a 90-minute behind-the-scenes tour of the Superior Estates Winery facility. Take a firsthand peek at wine production while inspecting the winery's imposing façade and derrick. Designed to represent each stage of the wine-conjuring process, the winery features a barrel-shaped room for private tastings, a wood-laden room for public tastings, and a limestone-embellished entryway.
Valid Saturday and Sunday only.
- The stately limestone and wood visitors building, influenced by the Arts and Crafts movement of architecture, seems out of place in this farming community, much like a peacock would in a flock of wild turkeys. The Superior Estates Winery, with its colossal windows, cathedral ceilings, soaring beams and trellises, looks like it belongs in the wine-growing region of California’s Napa Valley instead of the rolling hills of the Republican River Valley. – Algis Laukaitis, Lincoln Journal Star
