What You'll Get
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 $60, you get a select batch of wine at the Village Winery on Cadboro Bay Road (up to a $128 value, including the $48 on-site bottling fee).
The locally owned and operated winery stocks all the necessary ingredients to create an impressive collection of quality-tested international wine varietals. Today's deal lets customers select a batch (approximately 30 bottles) of select red or white wines, which Village Winery will lovingly nurture into existence within four to six weeks. The wine-making process begins with fervent negotiations with Dionysus, followed by a base of grape juice concentrate, which is transformed into one of eight varieties. Bask in the crisp goodness of the Kenridge Classic Pinot Grigio, a light-bodied, witty, though slightly dry white wine. Those in search of a broodier swig can opt for the Kenridge Classic Cabernet Sauvignon, a berry-scented blend with hints of toasted oak, a rebellious attitude, and a surprisingly soft finish.
Clients can custom-order colourful bottle labels from the Village Winery's collection of 12. The wistful tourist might try the Venice-themed sticker, complete with a colour photo of the watery getaway's famous gondolas, minus the ubiquitous robot gondoliers. Corks, shrink caps, and on-premise brewing are included in this package; however, bottles are not included, so bring empties from home or buy them when your batch is ready ($1 per bottle).
