Get in on the fun with today's Groupon: for $59, you get one VIP ticket to the California Wine Celebration at the Westlake Village Inn in Westlake Village on Sunday, October 9, from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. (a $130 total value). The VIP ticket includes:
- Festival entrance with complimentary wine tastings, a boxed lunch, entertainment, and a souvenir wine glass (a $65 value)
- One two-for-one tasting room gift card (a $65 value)

Filling 17 acres with a heady bouquet of wine and music, the California Wine Celebration showcases more than 100 varietals of wine from local wineries to the accompaniment of live concerts and luxuries such as a hand-rolled-cigar bar. Guests can amble about the picturesque gardens at the inn to sample vintages from Malibu, Napa, and Paso Robles from souvenir wine glasses or vintage goatskins. Boxed lunches shelter gourmet sandwiches and chips to replenish empty bellies as Mediterranean music and upbeat rock 'n' roll encourage dancing across the lawn. A two-for-one tasting-room gift card grants guests access to the treasures within, including bottles to take home and bottle corks to string from mariachi hats. VIP guests are automatically entered into the celebration's prize-studded raffle, yielding delights such as fine bottles of wine, vineyard tours, and gourmet dinners.
