In a proper tasting, wine must be held up to the light to gauge its color, tossed on a cat's back to judge its acidity, and sipped through a crazy straw to annoy the host. Become the toast of any tasting with today's Groupon: for $20, you get a wine sampler (up to a $30 value), which includes six 50-mililiter bottles of premium wines, plus the cost of taxes and standard shipping (up to an $11 value) from TastingRoom.com (up to a $41 total value).
TastingRoom.com's easy-to-navigate virtual wine cellar enables aspiring sommeliers to handpick luxurious reds and whites to sample at home, and has garnered numerous media accolades from prestigious outlets such as ABC, the Los Angeles Times, and Wine Spectator. A menu of specialized samplers pleases palates with six 50-milliliter servings of fragrant pours. The taste-bud-tantalizing pinot noirs found in a Papapietro Perry sampler ($29.99) burst with fruit-centric tones like a piñata stuffed with lemonade. Observe various ethnocentric notes in the Australian Gems selection ($29.99), which appeals to inner-Aussies with crisp viogniers and vibrant chardonnays, or savor the monochromatic assemblage of the Red Essentials 2($27.99). To ensure each pack can be enjoyed the way it was intended, samplers come shipped with complete tasting descriptions, beautiful presentation, and zero-oxygen sealing, which, much like a disposable camera filled with candid shots of the California Raisins, preserves the lively personality of each individual grape.
