In a proper tasting, wine must be held up to the light to gauge its color, tossed on a cat's back to judge its acidity, and sipped through a crazy straw to annoy the host. Become the toast of any tasting with today's Groupon: for $20, you get a wine tasting for two at The Wine Crush in Long Beach (a $40 value).
The Wine Crush tantalizes palates with a collection of more than 500 boutique wines gathered from around the globe. During a tasting, couples can cozy up while clinking glasses graced by liquid manifestations of red, white, and rose. The Wine Crush pours a smattering of small-production grape nectars between the hours of 4 p.m. and 8 p.m., and every tasting gives guests the chance to taste at least five varieties.
Intoxicate your seven senses while lounging amid lush garden foliage and fan-shaped plant leaves, sipping portions of shiraz or Sonoma valley gems as you and your date share secrets and secretly plot to share them with other people. The patio is dotted with outdoor furniture, paper lanterns, and space heaters to create an optimal backdrop for any anniversary, birthday, or romantic Flag Day rendezvous.
