Like Mike Tyson, wine is usually robust, is often boxed, and should never influence tattooing decisions. Imbibe the spirit of a champion with today's Groupon: for $30, you get a four-course wine-tasting package for two at Von Klaus Winery's Tasting Haus in Baraboo (up to a $60 value). The package includes:
- Tasting samples of four wines for two
- Four accompanying courses
Today's Groupon alson includes a buy-one-get-one-free voucher to the Barn Restaurant.
Father and son Clint and Clinton Clingerman work side by side using old-world techniques to handcraft 10 varieties of preservative-free fruit wines. A four-course tasting pairs several of Von Klaus's vineyard wares with well-matched dishes on succulent blind dates in the Tasting Haus. Candlelit couples indulge in a spread of Wisconsin cheeses, seasoned dipping oils and fresh bread, smoked salmon or shrimp, and a finale of hand-dipped chocolate strawberries or house-made wine truffles.
Groupon purchasers can visit the Barn Restaurant, featuring a full selection of appetizers, entrees, and sandwiches. Sandwiches such as the bacon-nator grilled cheese ($8) and the salmon burger with fresh dill and feta dill sauce ($8) fill plates alongside a choice of fries, homemade chips, or salad. The tilapia dinner platter includes Amber beer-battered and baked fish ($12), and the garlic escargot appetizer starts off meals with baked escargot, butter, and garlic ($9).
Must be 21 or older.
Von Klaus Winery Tasting Haus
Ivy snakes around door frames and fine stemware dangles above the Von Klaus Winery Tasting Haus’s bar where racks of all-natural fruit wines give off a kaleidoscope of colors. In this space, Von Klaus's staff re-creates the secluded winery experience right in downtown Baraboo. During four-course tastings, they pour samples of their sulfite- and preservative-free wines crafted from handpicked apples, wild cherries, or New Zealand kiwis. As guests gaze out the windows onto the historical square, the staff brings out small plates that may include Wisconsin cheese, jumbo shrimp, and chocolate truffles. As intimate as these pairings can be, the team at Von Klaus also finds a way to re-create the same feeling on a larger scale at private events. In addition to mobile tastings, the winery also brings its traveling vineyard to events in which a professional wine steward is on hand to offer guests a variety of sips.
