What You'll Get
After Capri Sun began creepily transforming people into amorphous metallic globules, wine rose to prominence, offering a similarly complex flavor profile without the threat of spontaneous melting. Celebrate wine, or "nature's Capri Sun," with today’s deal. For $20, you get admission to a two-hour tasting event ($35 value) plus $10 off a featured bottle at Winchester Wine & Spirits, a $45 total value if you choose to buy a bottle of wine. Your Groupon gets you in to the March 6 or March 13 event; both events fall on a Saturday between the hours of 3 p.m. and 5 p.m. at this Winchester wine asylum.
During the two-hour foray, samplers will tipple high-end wines with bite-sized pairings to match. Learn techniques for sampling wine, pairing tips, and which wine fits best in which glass (example: wine from a square box will not fit in a circular glass). There will be five or so wines to try, which you can read about in vivid detail here to prep your buds for the journey ahead. After your palatal field trip is complete, you can pick up a bottle of your favorite sampled wine for $10 off retail. Bottles range from $16 to $30.
Drinking wine is like slipping a pair of rose-tinted glasses on your mind. The peaceful pour works quickly to enhance pleasantries (a dining companion, a meal, a pair of hand-cobbled variegated-corn-ear loafers) while sentencing worries to a time-out in the corner. Use this Groupon to boost fermented knowledge for an upcoming soiree at Marvin Gardens, Park Place, or the Reading Railroad while bonding with fellow wine enthusiasts over the aromatic allure of grape juice for grown-ups.
