What You'll Get
Grapes naturally exist in three forms: solid, liquid, and raisin. Imbibe the fruit's most drinkable state with today's Groupon: for $89, you get a four-hour chauffeured wine tour from Uncorked Tours in Temecula (a $229 value). Tours are offered daily at 10 a.m. or 2:30 p.m.
Uncorked Tours' chauffeured excursions shuttle travelers to Temecula's renowned wineries in vehicles bearing party-like atmospheres. Choose a Cadillac Escalade or an Escalade limo, the latter of which is filled with music, two flat-screen TVs, and a stripper pole for rolling pizza dough, and embark on a sightseeing journey stopping at three to four wineries. At each stop, you'll have the opportunity to sample five to six varietals and tour the establishment's barrel room, which provides a glimpse into how the wines lived before taking up residence in your insides. In between sipping opportunities, an on-board hostess keeps mouths busy with a stream of cheese, crackers, water, fruit, chocolate, and a champagne toast, and she memorializes the happenings by taking 50 or more digital photos with her mind (posted online for free downloading).
