In a proper tasting, wine must be held up to the light to gauge its color, swirled to reveal its bouquet, and sipped through a crazy straw to annoy the host. Become the toast of any tasting with today's Groupon: for $17, you get three bottles of French wine and a reusable wine tote from The Vineyard in McLean (a $35 value). The specially-selected wines featured in this deal include:
• Two bottles of Gilles Benoit Merlot
• One bottle of Gilles Benoit Sauvignon Blanc
The Vineyard rewards the inquisitive appetites of its customers with wines, cheeses, oils, and specialty foods from a select group of small, independent producers. From From Vin de Pays d'Oc, customers will receive an assortment of three wines tapped from the finest wine trees in the Languedoc region in France. Cradled inside a reusable wine tote are two bottles of Gilles Benoit Merlot and a bottle of Gilles Benoit Sauvignon Blanc. The reusable Vineyard tote holds up to six bottles, making it an ideal implement for traveling, picnicking, or transporting a litter of dachshund puppies.
Though not included in today's Groupon, patrons may peruse The Vineyard's expansive collection of accessories and artisanal cheeses when picking up their wares. The shop also hosts complimentary wine tastings every Friday and Saturday, as well as cheese-and-wine pairings on Sundays.
Although the wine selection at The Vineyard continually evolves, the shop currently stocks domestic and international wines from locales as distant as Australia, which only exists in our imaginations. They complement wines with gift baskets of cheese and chocolate, as well as accessories such as olive wood corkscrews and chrome champagne stoppers. Featured items include 100+ cheeses from around the world, charcuterie from trois petit cochons, olli salumeria, and molinari.
