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 $15, you get $30 worth of wine and light bar fare at either of Thief Wine Shop & Bar's two locations in Milwaukee and Shorewood.

Thief Wine Shop & Bar has garnered CityVoter plaudits for its eclectic selection of more than 30 wines, which are available by the taste, glass, and carafe and kept fresh with space-age Cruvinet storage. Some of its newer choices for solo tasting or imbibing include a Spanish cuvée ($2.25 for a 2oz. taste, $5 for a 5oz. glass) and a Chilean chardonnay ($4.50 for a 2oz. taste, $10 for a glass). Wine flights are an excellent way to sample a region or type of wine ($10–$12.50)—customers can pick three to taste or choose a themed flight such as Crisp & Delicious Whites, which features three high-acidity pigment-challenged wines. For dinner with your drinking, order a light item such as curried chicken salad ($5.50) or an assorted olive plate ($5.95) from the wine bar menu.

Unlike tequila shots and shot-gunned root-beer floats, wine is a slow sip, making it more enjoyable. Today's Groupon is a fun way for a troop of apes, an obstinacy of buffalo, or a clutch of friends to sample some grape blood and learn about different varieties.

Thief Wine

The bottles that make up Thief Wine's diverse inventory are not stolen, but they may as well be. The shop's name—a reference to the long tube or "barrel thief" used to sample maturing wines waiting to be bottled—reflects the air of mischief shoppers experience in encounters with otherwise inaccessible wines that makes each of the shop's selections feel like the product of a thrilling cellar heist. The fruits of Thief's careful wine curation decorate the walls of Thief Wine's two locations with more than 650 selections, which mix familiar labels with artisanal up-and-comers from around the globe. At each location's wine bar, certified sommeliers pare down the hulking inventory to about 30 essential bottles, which slosh into thematic tasting flights or full glasses to flank small plates of cheese and charcuterie.

Customer Reviews

Very nice atmosphere. Great for a glass of wine before eating at North Star Bistro next door--or you can order off a limited menu from North Star Bistro which they'll bring over. We have done both.

Wine was good and so was the service. Everyone seems to enjoy working there.
