It can be intimidating to order wine, especially if you don't know the terminology or had an older cousin that said it was made from bug blood. Demystify the grape with this Groupon.
Choose Between Two Options
- $17 for a two-hour, in-depth wine tasting and pairing class class for one (a $35 value)
- $35 for a two-hour, in-depth wine tasting and pairing class for two (a $70 value)
Classes introduce wine etiquette and the basics of pairing and tasting. Tastings juxtapose wines from far-flung regions with domestic vintages.
You could call Vino 100 a wine boutique or a wine bar, but you might also view it as something of a wine library. Each bottle in the collection has been scrupulously cataloged according to the Wine Barometer system. Its tag decodes the complex flavors along two scales: flavor (dry to fruity) and body (light to full to solid). Buyers apply other selection criteria, too: the company guarantees it'll stock at least 100 bottles priced at $25 or less at all times, and that all those bottles will come from artisanal, limited-production wineries. Shoppers who can't wait to taste the evidence of the system's accuracy can take a bottle over to the wine bar for a small corking fee. Vino 100 also hosts wine classes and trivia nights to slake the thirst for knowledge.
