What You'll Get
Drinking wine is an activity that sometimes makes people believe they’re funnier, smarter, and two feet taller than they actually are. Feel the effects, educational and otherwise, of a wine tasting with today's Groupon: for $50, you get a night of wines delicately paired with meats and cheeses at Vintage Irving in Union Square (a $100 value). This Groupon can be redeemed at any of the designated Monday night events, with the first opportunity on Aug. 30 and the final event on January 31. Check the full schedule. Events have limited open spots and are subject to availability.
During the wine flight, one of Vintage Irving's sommeliers will lead the figurative tour across wine country, with stops—depending on the date—in Spain, Germany, France, or Italy. Sample both red and white wines from the evening's respective nation, extending the tannin-tinged hand of international diplomacy to your taste buds with each sip. Each wine tasting pairs the flight of fermented drinkables with appropriate meats and cheeses, allowing guests to take away mouthwatering matches for use at their next social soiree or company softball game. Irving Flight's wine tastings are an ideal way to expand one's palate without undergoing expensive "taste enhancement surgery." Up-and-coming oenophiles attending the classy event are asked to leave their Zubaz in the dresser drawer labeled "too mind-blowing for the public eye," and dress appropriately for the event. E-mail 48 hours ahead to reserve your spot for delicious wines and arresting meat & cheese pairings with Vintage Irving.
