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).
Uncorked Tours Megan Franks does all she can to separate stuffiness from wine connoisseurship. For tours of Temecula's wine country, she dispatches a Cadillac Escalade or a limo party coach with two flat-screen TVs and a dancer's pole, which she gaily poses next to in a photo on her website's About page. She also launches tipplers into the air during morning hot air balloon rides that begin, like the chauffeured tours, with a complimentary champagne toast. To contribute to the party vibe during each trip, a staff member continuously works a camera's shutter, producing digital photos that are then uploaded to Facebook for sharing and downloads.
