Thanks to cartoons, many Americans believe that the correct way to taste wine is to take a sip, then witness something so shocking that it causes them to involuntarily expectorate. Skip the spit takes and sample wine correctly with this Groupon.

$35 for a Wine- and Food-Tasting Event ($75 Value)

During wine-tasting events, each attendee samples five full glasses of local wine in the company of the winemaker. Executive chef Mia Saling supplies light food pairings inspired by the bistro's menu and her California upbringing. Though the wine list varies by event, previous events have featured wines by Michael David Winery, whose well-balanced sauvignon blanc zaps palates with citrusy aromas. Check the website or call for upcoming tastings.

Twisted Vine Bistro

Twisted Vine Bistro's staff comprises a fifth-generation Italian vintner and two veteran California-born chefs who cultivate unpretentious epicurean experiences praised by Gayot and Thrillist. During tasting events, local winemakers mingle with guests and tie-dye tongues with fine red and white varietals, which tasters pair with locally sourced snacks from the eatery's menu. The topic of each cooking class rotates frequently, but all sessions allow amateur foodies to rub spatulas with classically trained chefs so they can finally ask an expert why their oven never seems to get their undershirts their whitest. Artwork forged by local artists decks the space, and elegant drapery pulls back to reveal ample windows, which stream sunlight onto green and orange walls.
