Drinking wine is an activity that sometimes makes people believe they’re funnier, smarter, and two feet taller than they actually are. Today’s Groupon prolongs the non-truths with $40 worth of wine, tastings, and labels for $20 at The Winery at Canyon Crest, CityVoter's 2008 Best Winery in the Los Angeles area, the only winery in Riverside worth visiting, and also the only winery in Riverside.
Helmed by Kevin and Carolyn Craig, the boutique winery specializes in fruit and ice wines and imports juices from all over the world, fermenting and transforming each into wine on-site. Its wine menu can be perused here. Experience the Vidal diamond ice wine ($22 per bottle), a sensual sip exploding with juicy fruit flavors, or pair the Eagle Rock Italian Amarone–style powerhouse ($15 per bottle) with pizza or filet. You can also redeem your Groupon for tastings or custom wine labels—to personalize your pour to hand out at celebrations for having a baby, getting married, or successfully performing your own dental work.
Unlike tequila shots and shotgunned root-beer floats, wine is a slow sip, making it a more enjoyable libation that tickles your taste buds. Plus, wine can help you reduce the risk of heart disease, certain cancers, and progression of disorders such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s Disease.
Canyon Crest Winery
At Canyon Crest Winery, you can have just about any kind of wine-related adventure you want. If your main interest is drinking wine, wine-club memberships include one bottle, discounts on wine purchases, and a free tasting each month. Those more interested in the winemaking process can also bottle their own vintage with a personalized label, and others still can simply shop the tasting room for Canyon Crest's varietals, which are made in-house from grapes imported from around the world.
