Properly evaluating a wine requires adherence to the Five S's of tasting: Seeing, Smelling, Swirling, Sipping, and “So long, water!” Discover new forms of refreshment with today's Groupon: for $45, you get a one-month membership to Uncorked Ventures' Special Selections Wine Club (a $95 value). Tax and shipping costs (around $9 for a standard two-bottle shipment) are not included with this deal.
Uncorked Ventures specializes in providing wine lovers with the hard-to-find creations of both top and emerging wineries via carefully curated wine clubs. The company's super sippers visit, talk to, and exchange grape-related jokes with winemakers all over the West Coast, discovering tasteful tipples that other connoisseurs still consider purely theoretical. The Special Selections club doles out a one-two palate punch every month, sending members two bottles of potable pleasure, typically from the vine-friendly climes of California, Washington, and Oregon. Selections—which have previously included luminaries such as Alpha Omega Proprietary Red 2007 and ROAR Wines pinot noir Santa Lucia Highlands 2008—tend to be reds, though particularly winsome whites have occasionally talked their way into shipments as well. Each bottle also includes information on its respective winery, seasoning each sip with delicious notes of knowledge.
Founded by brothers-in-law Matt Krause and Mark Aselstine, Uncorked Ventures invests the time and care in its customers to understand their tastes and secret languages. The two-bottle sampling is superb for expanding an understanding of wine or eliminating echoes in vacant cellars. This deal also includes the opportunity to sign up for regular wine club shipments at a 10% discount, putting room in your budget for cheese, crackers, and a gold-plated wine decanter as well.
