Thanks to cartoons, many Americans believe that the correct way to taste wine is to take a sip, then witness something so shocking that it causes them to involuntarily expectorate. Skip the spit takes and sample wine correctly with today's Groupon: for $99, you get a wine tasting for two and two bottles of wine a month for six months (a $209.70 value) at Water 2 Wine. Choose between locations in Centennial and Greenwood Village.
Water 2 Wine’s more than 90 varieties of grapen goodness put the spirit on any palate. The on-site winemaking magic transforms ordinary bottles of macerated grapes into delightfully low-sulfite wines. Your six-month wine taster nets two bottles of these sumptuous liquids per month, one red and one white (a value of $29.95 a month for six months). Groupon buyers will get to know the winery's wares first with a one hour two-person tasting (a $30 value). After being ushered into the cozy tasting room, partakers indulge in fruit vampirism for a whole hour, learning about the varieties, regional specifics, and specific gravity, and tasting a variety of wines. Tasters typically sample eight wines during a wine tasting, although there is no set number of wines included. Potable possibilities include a lush, earthy Malbec, the award-winning California Symphony, and a selection of sweet wines in green apple, wildberry, and peach apricot varietals.
Water 2 Wine has won all sorts of awards, including two silver and three bronze medals in the Finger Lakes International Wine Competition and a bronze medal in the 2009 Denver International Wine Competition. The winery was also featured in Westword blogs, and it received an average rating of five stars from nine Citysearchers.
