Grape juice magically transforms into wine in the same way milk becomes cheese and a 1972 Dodge Dart becomes an even older 1972 Dodge Dart. Tipple the tasty transformation with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of wine at Vineyard Gate in Millbrae.
Boasting more than 2,000 brands of wine, Vineyard Gate provides an Eden for oenophiles as well as an ideal place for tannin tenderfoots to cover acres of unexplored fertility. Venerable vino aficionados help pick out wine that pairs perfectly with each client's palate and lifetime supply of space meals. Vineyard's selection spans both the far ends of the Earth and the budget: for less than $30, sample the crisp, fruity 2007 Sacha Lichine VDP blanc ($9) or the 2006 Waterbrook cabernet sauvignon, with hints of ripe cherry and currant ($21). This Groupon can also go toward a splurge on more swanky spirits such as the 2004 Château de la Tour Clos Vougeot Grand Cru Burgundy, an elegant elixir with a mouth-coating finish ($106). Vineyard also offers a variety of sparkling wines, roses, champagnes, and half-bottles for the more temperate tippler.
Vineyard Gate's staff thoroughly researches every vino variety and meets with wine producers, walking their vineyards, talking shop, and tasting their wines, thereby ensuring every uncorked bottle features the finest quality of fermentation free of malevolent genies. Vineyard Gate also features a tasting bar, open Tuesdays through Thursdays 12:30 p.m–6 p.m., and Fridays and Saturdays 2 p.m.–6 p.m.
