Wine presents a feast for all the senses, from its fruity smell when swirled in fine crystal to its musical sound when slurped through a twisty straw. Compose a sensory symphony with today's Groupon: for $6, you get a wine tasting for two at Trinity Vineyards (a $12 value).
The family behind Trinity Vineyards labors sustainably over its fruit and has just bedecked its bottles with silver medals from the 2011 McMinnville Wine & Food Classic and Newport Seafood & Wine Festival. The boutique winery takes special pride in its complex pinot noirs, nurtured by the rich red clay of the gorgeous Cascade Mountains terrain and the hard work of grape-polishing gophers. During the tasting, guests will tipple from a flight of at least six wines, spanning several vintages and varietals, savoring flavors such as the heady peach and pear aromas of a 2009 viognier. After the rousing taste-bud workout, sippers can browse the merchandise offered in the tasting room and get 10% off bottles of wine ($13+), pots of gourmet jams and mustards, and vials of wine's sarcastic cousin, vinegar. Tastings are held most Saturdays and Sundays from noon to 6 p.m.
