If grapes could talk, they'd recount their dreams, the first time they got plucked, and the first time they felt victimized by nature's rumor mill—the vine. Taste the tales of the grape with today's Groupon: for $150, you get two tickets to the Premier Tasting event at the Art of Wine Festival, held at the Walton Arts Center in Fayetteville on Saturday, June 11, at 6 p.m. (a $300 value).
The annual Art of Wine Festival culls more than 100 venders to showcase their reserve-quality sippables from around the world, supporting arts-education programs at the non-for-profit Walton Arts Center. Palates will expand their repertoires during the Premier Tasting event, an evening spent sipping, mingling, and perfecting the art of gargling the melody to Beethoven's Symphony no. 9. Take a jaunt through this sprawling pageant of bottles, meandering through themed rooms dedicated to particular types of wine, such as Argentina reds and California raisins post record deal.
After treating taste buds to ambrosial wines, browse the array of munchables from local eateries or peruse the assortment of items—including art, vacations, and dinner packages—up for bidding at the silent auction.
