Delicately crushing grapes produces sweetly sippable wine, just as delicately crushing ice with pineapple produces the opening sounds of a Jimmy Buffet song. Imbibe delicious byproducts with today’s Groupon: for $12, you get a wine tasting at The Cellar Door, located in downtown Downers Grove (a $25 value). Choose from four Saturday dates:
- November 26
- December 3
- December 10
- December 17<p>
Patrons can come and go as they please during The Cellar Door’s open-house-style tastings, which warm tongues from noon until 4 p.m. and send palates on global jaunts through 20 specialty wines from around the world, each fluent in its own flavor language. Between samplings, sippers can nibble on light hors d’oeuvres as they browse the shop’s ample bottle selection for the perfect aperitif adoptee. The Cellar Door’s commitment to providing the finest vintages at vintage-low prices means that guests can find their ideal quaffs without having to cruise the illegal burgundy market.
