Drinking wine often makes people believe they’re funnier, smarter, and two feet taller than they were when they first saw Matthew McConaughey star in Scorpion King. Heighten up with today’s Groupon: a three-wine flight of your choosing for $9 at Unwined Wine Bar (worth up to $22). Surround yourself with live music and 50 different wines while you learn about the lives and times of society's treasured squashed grapes.
Whether you've wined around the world or simply root for the wine with the best colors, you'll relish the grapen goodness of getting acquainted with Unwined's wines of California and beyond. Choose from 14 flights that feature three 2.5-ounce tastes of wine families as time-honored as the Jetsons. Train your palate with samples from the noble house of Rieslings. Or try Old World Chardonnays against New World chardonnays. Save your pocket brownie bites to bite during a flight of dessert wines, or brush the brownie-bite bits off your red dress shirt to keep it fresh during a taste of pinot noirs and zinfandels.
Celebrate the end of the decade with wines born within the decade, a less devious decade than decades that were celebrated with casks of unmarked amontillado. Unlike milk shots and shotgunned root-beer floats, wine is a slow sipper, making it a more enjoyable libation. Plus, wine can help you reduce the risk of heart disease, certain cancers, boring French movies, and progression of disorders such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s Disease.
