Before it was tamed, the wild grape was the scourge of the valleys, mocking the looks of recently sheared sheep and running away with farmers' sons. Drink to the fruits of cultivation with today's Groupon: for $49, you get a Vino del Vida wine making experience from Vine Masters (a $109 value). Customers can also choose to apply the $109 Groupon value toward another wine kit.
Vine Masters is a family-operated business, opened in 2010, that makes the art of wine making easy by inviting customers into their on-premise wine making shop and offering helpful customer service throughout the entire process. The Vino del Vida wine making experience combines grape juice and grape concentrate into a savoury, alcoholic alchemy. Vine Masters creates the perfect conditions for wine making. The staff ensures the wine is placed in a sanitized container, balanced for taste, and filtered to remove any residual sediment so that the end product is clear and clean. Customers who opt for the white wine will sprinkle yeast on the grape concentrate then burp, feed, and change the diapers of the product for four to eight weeks. After that, a creature with a smooth, clean, and crisp body and the smell of tropical fruits will provide beauty and unconditional love until it is completely consumed, or until it goes off to college, whichever comes first. The red wine experience is slightly different, as it will produce a product that is deep, rich, and most likely destined for at least a couple schoolyard tousles.
Beyond just a shared enthusiasm for wine, the staffers at Vine Masters are vintners themselves, constantly crafting and sampling the fermented fruits of their labour. Exclusively stocking RJ Spagnols wine kits, Vine Masters offers visitors the opportunity to create more than 225 types of wine. The team makes sure each batch of vino is taken care of from start to finish, tending to varietals by moving them into sanitized containers and then stabilizing, filtering, and singing "I Heard It Through the Grapevine" to their contents each night.
