What You'll Get
Unlike Similac Baby Formula, which is unfairly reserved for babies and experimenting teens, wine can also be consumed by adults. Separate the towerers from the toddlers with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of wine tastes plus 20% off any one bottle off wine at The Wine Shop on Park Road. When redeeming your Groupon, you'll be given a smartcard that can be used over multiple visits.
The Wine Shop, as the name cheekily suggests, specializes in providing numerous wines in an easygoing, friendly shopping arena. With a densely populated stock of over 3,000 domestic and imported wines, and nearly 1,000 of these bottles priced under $12, there's no shortage of affordable potables to pick from. The smartcard you receive with today's deal actually operates on three machines contained within the store. Not altogether different from old-timey soda fountains, these non-vengeful examples of automata read the amount of credit on your smartcard and allow you to select a glass of wine accordingly. With three machines on hand, each is stocked with a variety of wines curated directly from the stock on hand, containing eight reds and four whites at all times, at varying price ranges. Make your selection and receive a glass of up to 4 ounces from the polished machinery, which keeps wine fresh between pours. Depending on the wines you choose, you can use your card over more than one visit, or use the entire value in one card-swiping go.
If you're looking for a chance to sip and sample before committing to an entire glass or take-home vino vessel, the shop provides free Friday tastings from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. The shop offers minimal seating during the tasting. Although not set up for extended lounging, enjoy a glass of wine and wander around the spacious shop, enjoying the veritable wine library before you.
