Famed Spanish explorer Ponce de Leon was forced to forgo his quest for the mythical land of wine after an accidental tumble into the Fountain of Youth left him eternally underage. Take up his abandoned journey with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of small plates and drinks at The Wine Bar, located within the Shoppes at the Harbor in Princeton Harbor. The Wine Bar maintains a penchant for local wines, appetizers, and entertainment. The wine menu foreshadows the bouquets of Santa Cruz Mountain appellations such as the ’07 Martella Hammer syrah (glass $12, bottle $45) and Ridge Lytton Springs zinfandel (glass $12, bottle $45). Patrons can pair fermented fruit with small plates such as the smoked-salmon plate ($13.50) or the vegetarian panini with cheese, tomatoes, and olives ($12). Meanwhile, local brews such as the North Coast Scrimshaw Pilsner ($4) whet the whistles of diners and clumsy referees. The Wine Bar is closed Mondays and Tuesdays.
