What You'll Get
Unlike country folk, city dwellers are much more likely to yearn for open space and scale skyscrapers after being bitten by radioactive spiders. Retreat from urban habitats with today's Groupon: for $45, you get a farm tour, dinner, and wine tasting at The Windmill Winery (a $90 value) in Florence. Tours run Monday–Thursday from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m.
Hop aboard an antique tractor to take a hayride tour of The Windmill Winery, which spans more than 100 acres of Arizona countryside, boasting historical buildings and breath-stealing scenery. Visitors can wind through the working farm to see a collection of early 20th-century buildings plus a host of farm animals humming nursery rhymes under their breath. Wine sippers can then drink in views of two lakes, the Gila River, and the Superstition Mountains before heading into the 1920s dairy barn to test palates with five signature wines culled from small and organic wineries. Learn about each wine's origin and how to pair it with the right culinary sidekicks, then sate grumbling bellies with a freshly grilled meal served on the back porch of the First Pinal County Sheriff's House. The night will wind down under the stars with a bonfire, s'mores, and bone-chilling stories about pairing fish and red wine.
