Like choosing a prom date, choosing a favorite wine necessitates sampling a variety to determine which one will produce the nicest bouquet. Enjoy the fruits of competitive courting with today’s Groupon: for $12, you get a wine-tasting package for two at Vaso de Vino Wine Market in Arden (up to a $24 value). The package includes:
- Samples of 10 wines and a cheese plate for two (a $10 value)
- A bottle of one of the tasting wines to take home (up to a $14 value; customers may use the $14 value toward a more expensive bottle)<p>
Vaso de Vino’s buyers work hand-in-hand with wine suppliers to stock the gleaming wooden shelves with top-shelf sippables from more than 1,000 labels. The tasting brings two guests together to discover the complex flavor profiles of a selection of cheese and up to 10 wines, boosting abilities to pair menu items and find new companions for a listless Bacchus. Patrons then choose their favorite bottle from among a swirling kaleidoscope of vinos, including merlot, cabernet, and chardonnay that sparkles playfully across palates, cloaking tongues in a refined coolness without the risks of melting down a king’s ice sculpture.
