$30 for a Mexican Buffet for Two ($60 Value)

The buffet features smoked-chicken quesadilla bites, chicken enchiladas, and a taco bar with brisket to fill corn and flour tortillas; sides of rice and tossed garden salad complement the entrees. As they scoop chili con queso onto chips, patrons can wander through vendors' booths of local art, ranging from jewelry to sculpture, and watch stone carvers compete to chisel a winning piece. Each guest also receives a keepsake wineglass.

This Groupon is redeemable between noon and 3 p.m. on the Saturday, September 29, during the Harvest Celebration Weekend.

The Vineyard at Florence

Theme nights pop up throughout the year and focus on exciting themes like Moulin Rouge, complete with French lingerie and decadent chocolate to set the mood. Guests needn't be getting married to explore the setting—there are single-day excursions such as the Sunday yoga class. Of course, estate wines remain a prime focus for the staff and the vineyard's visitors, with tastings held most Thursdays and weekends inside the Villa Firenze, where contemporary culture mingles with antiquated charm. Italian decor and architecture typify the rustic interior, though its main hallways give way to galleries where local artists can exhibit their work. Gigantic wooden barn beams grace the ceiling in the traditional wine shop, and the outer decks afford views of the polo field alongside the arbors and herb gardens.

Weddings at The Vineyard at Florence hark back to an unhurried age, when horse-drawn carriages ferried couples to the ceremony, guests stayed in villas overlooking verdant rows of grapes, and the next morning began with a dip in the infinity pool. The sprawling venue embraces this mix of old-world Italy and modern luxury. Intricate stonework on the Tuscan inns contrasts with the sleek lines of its gym equipment, and the murmurs of a spring-fed creek accompany live musical performances in the amphitheater.

Rather than preserve their slice of countryside with uninterrupted quiet or a colossal snow-globe dome, the vineyard's tenants strive to fill the hills with life. They host classes on topics from pairing wines to organic farming, and welcome diners to sample handcrafted confections at Bissinger's Chocolate Experience and Café. Bands fill the wine-tasting room with new rhythms each week, and festivals such as the Harvest Celebration Weekend—where attendees can glimpse stone carvers at work and dine on homegrown cuisine—imbue the rural expanse with a close sense of community.
