Unlike her homemade mashed potatoes, your mom's homemade wine recipe is messier, less comforting, and can potentially get her arrested. Protect mom from winemaking mishaps with today's Groupon: for $110, you get a hands-on winemaking course at The Grape Escape in Dayton (a $220 value). The session's first sitting is on May 24 at 7:00 p.m., and reservations must be made before then.

The Grape Escape intoxicates senses with interactive, winemaking courses that yield 12 bottles of wine over the course of four sittings. Each 60-minute sitting separately integrates the various stages of winemaking: crushing, pressing, racking, and bottling. During spring, crafty oenophiles gather and sift through scores of South American grapes shipped straight from Chile and Argentina. Classes commence upon choosing the type of fruits, barrels, and aging durations that will foster forthcoming fermentation. Crush sweet juices from well-measured mounds of nature's candy before reconvening about two weeks later to begin the pressing process. Work the wine press to extract elixirs and transfer them to your oak barrels of choice. After learning how to properly rack wines during the third sitting, burgeoning vino makers conclude courses with a bottling and custom-labeling session that curbs urges to conceal beverages in paper bags.

The Grape Escape promotes itself as one of the most evolved winemaking bastions on the East Coast. Founders Tom and Nancy Nye encourage leisurely winemaking romps among family and friends in a relaxed environment. All sessions explore earthy characteristics of Chilean and Argentinean wines, which are garnering fanfare for their bawdy flavors, deep textures, and abilities to pull all-nighters during Carnival season.
