What You'll Get
Before wine tastings, people had no idea that wine was palatable and used large quantities of the fermented fluid to dye pantaloons. Learn from the past without staining knickerbockers with today's deal: for $30, you get a wine tasting for two, one bottle of wine, and a pair of engraved wine glasses at Water 2 Wine (a $70 value), in the winemaker's Centennial location.
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 histamine-free, low-sulphite wines. After being ushered into the cozy tasting room, you and your twin taster can indulge your penchant for fruit vampirism for a whole hour, learning about the varieties, regional specifics, specific gravity, and taste of each wine you select. Tasters typically sample eight wines during a wine tasting, although there is no set number of wines included.
After you and your drinkelgänger have experienced medal winners such as the Barolo-style Piedmont, you can pick out a bottle to take home from any of the $11–$28 stock. Water 2 Wine will swaddle your bottle in a custom label of your choice. A complimentary gift of engraved tasting glasses will chaperone your bottle’s trip back to your domicile, apartment, or yurt.
This Groupon is valid by reservation only on Tuesday through Friday from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. and on Saturday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.

About Water 2 Wine
After 22 years in the air force, Water 2 Wine–founder John McFadden established his first custom winery in San Antonio seven years ago. Already the business has spread as far as Milwaukee to the north and Denver to the west, bringing the country's vinophiles more than 100 wines, each of which are fermented on site and available for tastings every day. Those who want to get more involved in the crafting process may sign up to make their own wine and steep themselves in each step of the operation, from selecting the grape varieties, beginning the fermentation process, withstanding a wait of about 45 days, and finally christening their creation by smashing a tiny boat against the bottle. All custom-made wines are plastered with personalized labels made from one of Water 2 Wine’s templates or images that customers design from the ground up.
