Drinking wine is an activity that sometimes makes people believe they’re funnier, smarter, and two feet taller than they actually are. Today’s Groupon prolongs the non-truths: for $55, you get a wine-making experience yielding 30 customized bottles of wine (a $110 value including HST) at Vintner's Cellar Bowmanville. Boasting a venerable variety of international wine, Vintner's Cellar grants vino enthusiasts the chance to make their own craft wine during an anti-challenging process that creates wines worthy of picky palates at a simplified fraction of the cost of store-bought wine. Freelance fermenters will choose a wine varietal and customize it to their tastes and then add the yeast to begin the same wine-making process used at wineries—without the pains of a roof and the hassle of spooky crop circles. This pleasurable process uses purified reverse-osmosis water to keep flavour profiles and rap sheets clean. After six to eight weeks of marinating in a lucky bucket, the wine is ready for in-store bottling, labelling, and an elaborate cotillion party. Custom labels, included in the value of this Groupon, can turn bland bottles into fun conversation pieces or personal gifts for the holidays. Corks and shrink caps are also included in this deal. Vintner's Cellar Bowmanville is open 10–6 p.m. Tuesday through Friday and 10–4 p.m. on Saturday.
