True wine connoisseurs are taught to distinguish varietals, identify flawed bottles, and cry pure chardonnay. Become one with the grape with today’s Groupon: for $30, you get a wine-education-class package for two (a $60.85 total value) from Water 2 Wine, valid at locations in Round Rock and Austin. The class includes the following:
- A Wine Education and Food Pairing class for two (a $40 value)
- Two logo-etched wine glasses (a $5.95 value each)
- A high-quality, hinged waiter’s corkscrew (an $8.95 value)<p>
This deal does not include wine. Any students who wish to add the unlimited wine tasting, which includes more than 90 sample options, may purchase it at the time of the class for the normal $10 fee.
Water 2 Wine’s experts teach students to decide on the best bites to accompany vinos during classes held inside functional wineries. Knowledge pours into minds as small groups of students explore the basics of pairing and sample food to train their taste buds. Instructors infuse humor into discussions about how to judge sips using the eyes, nose, and mouth, and students are welcomes to pop questions about tasting technique, malolactic fermentation, or how to find the best wine via echolocation. After the class, pairs take home reference notes, a duo of etched wine glasses and a high-quality corkscrew for more elegant toasts at home.
Water 2 Wine schedules multiple classes a week, based on demand and popular telethons airing each night. Buyers can call ahead to find the most convenient class time.
