What You'll Get
Grape juice magically transforms into wine in the same way milk becomes cheese and a 1972 Dodge Dart becomes an even older 1972 Dodge Dart. Tipple the tasty transformation with today's Groupon to The Wine & Cheese Gallery on Main Street. This Groupon is only valid for redemption on Fridays. Choose from the following options:
- For $18, you get a bottle of wine and a cheese plate (up to a $37 value).
- For $12, you get two glasses of wine and a cheese plate (up to a $27 value).
The Wine & Cheese Gallery keeps grapeblood-gurus gleeful with its collection of more than 3,000 wines, while turophiles can chow on a cheese plate, featuring three selected cheeses, fruit, and french bread. New wine offerings available for imbibing by the bottle or by the glass include a rich and elegant 2000 vintage Moulin-a-Vent from Château de Jacques and a smooth Valpolicella classico superiore blend from Serego Alighieri. Take a seat on the outdoor patio bistro or opt for a seat at the indoor restaurant Panache. For the latest in tastings and specials, wine-lovers can follow The Wine & Cheese Gallery on Twitter, unlike other wine and cheese galleries that continue to communicate with customers via flag semaphore or complex cryptograms embedded in highway billboards.
- Gainesville old-timers Bunky Mastin and Wade Tyler travel frequently to Italy and France to keep their shop stocked with more than 4,000 wine selections, including boutique bottles from Transylvania and Napa Valley's elusive 1993 Silver Oak cabernet sauvignon. – Terry Ward, Washington Post
- Unbeatable wine selection (one of the best in the Southeast), decent cheese spread, fine European chocolates and other specialty items. Having lunch outside is a real treat. – Stacey J., Yelp

About The Wine and Cheese Gallery
For 35 years, downtown Gainesville's Wine and Cheese Gallery has held court in a quaint white wood house that INsite Gainesville writer Jennifer Coleman calls "reminiscent of a classic French bistro.” Owners Bunky Mastin and Wade Tyler curate a larder with more than 3,000 varieties of wine, an international selection of cheeses, rich chocolates, and gourmet lunch items served on the charming patio bistro or inside at Panache, the shop’s restaurant.
Panache's chefs pull from the Gallery’s stock to harmoniously blend flavors in sandwiches such as The Normandy, which combines brie, apples, and cinnamon on french bread and is garnished with a miniature beret, and the turkey and havarti, which is balanced by an Adriatic fig spread. Patrons can also nibble on the quiche du jour or hide their faces from exes in soups that vary depending on the whims of the chef, with one recent creation involving sage matzo balls in the affairs of a ginger-chicken broth.
