Wine's taste only improves with age, as shown by its peerless collection of Phil Collins LPs. Educate your palate with today’s Groupon: for $5 you get admission for two to a barrel tasting and picnic at Westfall Winery in Montague (a $10 value). This event will be held on Saturday, July 16 and Sunday, July 17 from noon to 5 p.m.
Visitors to Westfall Winery descend into the building's secret barrel room to taste fruit-packed potables from Westfall's extensive wine list, all crafted with Old World wine-making techniques amid the picturesque greenery of Sussex County. Inside French oak barrels, fermented grapes age into velvety cabernet sauvignon, local blueberries age into slightly tart blueberry wine, and young castaways age into colorful, barrel-dwelling philosophers. Sated oenophiles can step outside to Westfall Winery’s picnic area to relish a grilled hot dog and homemade chili, and tour the winery’s sparkling pond and white picket fences. At the end of the event, guests can take home a bottle or a case ($12.50+), then use the empty bottles to build a glass-bottomed lifeboat.
