Drinking wine is an activity that sometimes makes people believe they're funnier, smarter, and 2 feet taller than they actually are. Bask in the power of belief with today's Groupon for wine-tasting outings at the VX Vineyard in Newberg. This Groupon expires on November 20. Choose between the following options:
- For $20, you get a wine tasting for two (a $20 value) and a bottle of the vineyard's 2009 pinot noir (a $20 value; a $40 total value).
- For $30, you get a wine tasting for four (a $40 value) and a bottle of the vineyard's 2009 pinot noir (a $20 value; a $60 total value).
VX Vineyard's award-winning stable of wines comprise a complex, balanced tasting experience to be enjoyed in the vineyard's scenic setting. After navigating the grounds of the 210-acre farm on a Saturday or Sunday, guests travel to the tasting room to swirl, sip, and fill squirt guns with a seasonal selection of four to five locally grown vinos. Along with their hand-picked sampling from the vineyard's stash, visitors munch on the farm's chocolate-covered hazelnuts and mingle in an authentic, unpretentious atmosphere, carefully cultivated by the family of vineyard owners. After their tasting, each party will leave with a bottle of VX's 2009 pinot noir, whose medium-bodied, smoky flavors of strawberry, cranberry, cherry, and caramel earned it a Bronze Medal at the San Francisco International Wine Competition.
