Grape juice magically transforms into wine in the same way milk becomes cheese and a 1972 Dodge Dart becomes an even older 1972 Dodge Dart. Tipple the tasty transformation with today's Groupon to The Local Vine. Choose between the following options:
- For $25, you get a wine-tasting class (a $55 value) or your choice of one of two wine events (a $55 value):
- Rock the Score! held 6 p.m.–9 p.m. on Thursday, November 3
- Champagne & Sparkling Wine Celebration held 6 p.m.–9 p.m. Thursday, December 8
The full $55 value of this option may be applied toward any available class, though buyers must pay the difference for the more-expensive events.
- For $49, you get a 10-glass punch card valid for glasses of wine $10 and under (up to a $100 value).
The Local Vine has more than 100 wines from around the world, and expert sommeliers with the talented taste buds to tell them apart. Sippers can siphon knowledge of fermented fruits with one of its classes, such as the low-key Wine 101, the locally focused Wines of the Pacific Northwest, or the discreet match-making Cheese & Wine Pairings. In each class, guests will learn to differentiate overtones of peach from aftertastes of boot leather by sampling up to six different selections and taking home a cheat sheet. Enthusiasts can opt for events including the Champagne & Sparkling Wine Celebration, in which they will coat tongues in more than 20 international carbonated creations, or the annual Rock the Score! event, which pairs highly scored wines with small bites more satisfying than playing mind games with a teething toddler.
Customers can also indulge in a punch card, gaining access to 10 glasses of wine (up to a $10 value each) from the Local Vine's staggering wine list. Tongues can loosen with the boisterous taste of a rousanne from Washington or sample a sweet port, which, unlike a chicken-fried steak, is aged 10 years for optimum taste.
