While candy is dandy and liquor is quicker, combining the two allows eaters to knot paisley cravats at lightning-fast speeds that surpass even Oscar Wilde's legendary record. Satisfy aesthetic sensibilities with today's Groupon: for $8, you get a tasting and two pints at Wine Cellar Sorbets, located near the intersection of Kent and Franklin streets (up to a $16 value). This Groupon expires October 30.
Wine Cellar Sorbets produces small batches of fine-quality sorbets using finished wines from around the world, enabling overeager oenophiles to counteract pesky ice-cream headaches with the bold, warming sensation of a sun-drenched terroir. Patrons will visit Wine Cellar Sorbets’ Greenpoint factory to sample flavors before choosing lucky pints to escort home, massage with sensual oils, and devour. Tastings take place every Saturday from noon to 8 p.m. until October 30. Champagne sorbet arrives bubble-free with a dry, citrusy taste that melds nicely with sliced strawberries ($6), while hints of currant and blackberry punctuate the cabernet sauvignon's full-bodied, dry finish, making it a cold and creamy companion to dark chocolate ($6). Celebrate an early VE Day by surrendering a scoop of semi-sweet riesling sorbet ($6), with notes of green apple and pear, to a warm, patriotic wedge of American apple pie.
Wine Cellar Sorbets aims to preserve each wine's integrity by limiting the addition of non-wine ingredients. The resulting icy treats are as creamy as they are fat-free, dairy-free, and gluten-free. Most offerings are composed of less than 0.5% alcohol, making them legally nonalcoholic, although a selection of 10-proof alcoholic sorbets—such as rose, sangria, and pinot noir ($8 each)—are available for sale only at the Brooklyn factory. Additional events and featured recipes can be found on Wine Cellar Sorbets’ Facebook page, but will not be broadcast via migratory geese formations.
Must be at least 21 years old to purchase alcoholic sorbets. Special arrangements for pick-up outside of Saturday tasting hours may be made by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.

- We found this Pinot Noir sorbet to be incredibly tasty. The wine flavor is strong and can surprise you if you are expecting a fruity taste. We think it would make an excellent topping on a flourless dark chocolate cake. – WSJ
- Wine Cellar Sorbets are just magical. Imagine champagne, sangria, ruby port, mimosa, sake, cab, rose, pinot noir, and many, many more -- frozen and with a touch of sweetness. Yum !! They're great as a dessert, and equally great as a base for cocktails. – Sergio R., Yelp
