What You'll Get
George Orwell famously wrote about winemaking, "If you want a picture of the future, imagine a boot stomping on a grape's face— forever." Have fun proving him right with today’s grape-smashing Groupon: for $20, you get a wine tasting for two with two souvenir wine glasses (a $16 value) and a select bottle of wine (up to a $25 value) at Talon Winery & Vineyards, with two locations in Lexington and Shelbyville.
Located on handsome farmland amid Kentucky’s rolling hills, Talon’s lush 5-acre vineyard produces a purple-hued spectrum of vintages. The vineyard welcomes guests any day of the week to sample several of Talon’s liquid vinefruits before selecting a bottle to take home and save for a special occasion. The Coyote Red, a semi-sweet soft red with a refreshing light cherry and strawberry flavors, may cause sippers to howl discreetly into your shirt sleeve ($12.95), and a sample of the Traminette, a spicy Gewurztraminer-style white wine boasts lemon, honeysuckle, and rosebud notes ($14.95). Talon’s Lexington tasting room, located inside a historical 1790s farmhouse, grants visitors the bonus of experiencing the grape-imprisoning process at the winery’s on-site corking complex.

About Talon Winery
Talon Winery's Lexington and Shelbyville locations offer visitors a unique wine-tasting experience. At the Lexington location, visitors can follow the entire winemaking process from vine to bottle, while strolling through a lush five-acre vineyard. The vineyard features a gift shop, and guests are welcome to a wine tasting in the historical tasting house. At the Shelbyville location, guests can sample wine in a modern tasting room adorned with a barrel ceiling. Despite the contemporary decor, the tasting room is set against the small-town charm of the city. Like the Lexington location, the Shelbyville location features a gift shop to peruse.
