Drinking wine is an activity that sometimes makes people believe they’re funnier, smarter, and two feet taller than they actually are. Bask in the power of belief with today’s Groupon: for $45, you get a wine-club membership for three months at Vine Expressions in Gilbert (a $90 value). The membership includes:
- Two bottles of wine each month from a choice of one white and two reds
- 10% off total bill while partaking of club wine
- 10% off any additional bottles purchased while dining plus waived corking fee
- First notification of upcoming wine tastings and special events
The certified sommelier at Vine Expressions handpicks three wines each month, from which wine-club members select two for enjoying within the warmly lit bistro. Rotating offerings may include chardonnay, pinot noir, or cabernet sauvignon, which wine lovers sip, sniff, and gargle while lounging at the purple-tinged bar or in cozy leather chairs. Snacks crafted from ingredients culled from the nearby farmers’ market complement the reds and whites, and wooden shelves brimming with bottles line the walls alongside works by local artists. Membership also grants access to specialty events such as wine dinners, festivals, and trips to regional grapevines laden with succulent fruit and juicy neighborhood gossip.
