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: for $25, you get a wine-tasting class or event at The Local Vine’s new home on 12th Avenue (up to a $55 value). Groupon purchasers can also apply the value of this deal toward a more expensive class or event and pay the difference.

Voted Best of Citysearch in 2008–2010, The Local Vine has more than 100 wines from around the world and expert sommeliers with the talented taste buds to tell them apart. Siphon knowledge of fermented fruits by choosing one of its classes such as the low-key Wine 101, the locally focused Wines of the Pacific Northwest, or the confrontational Syrah vs. Shiraz, which ends in a shirt-staining battle of the reds. No matter which you choose, you'll learn to differentiate overtones of peach from aftertastes of boot leather by sampling up to six different selections and taking home a "cheat sheet." Events, such as the Champagne & Sparkling Wine Celebration, allow enthusiasts to coat tongues in more than 20 varieties of carbonated creations, while the Annual Rock the Score Tasting serves highly scored selections with small bites more satisfying than playing mind games with a teething toddler.


Bon Appétit magazine named The Local Vine one of the Top 10 Wine Bars in the Country in 2008. Citysearchers voted it Best Wine List in 2010, and Best Wine Bar in both 2008 and 2009. Yelpers give it a four-star average.

  • The bar is really into trying less known, more upscale wines along with the more affordable glasses. It's great to have such a range. These people are wine lovers who opened a bar… – Cypress Gal, Citysearch
  • The Local Vine makes everyone feel like a wine expert. – Katy H., Yelp

Great venue, and without even a hint of snobbery. Class was fun, materials were accessible, and staff was incredibly friendly and knowledgable. A+ experience.
