What You'll Get
Jump to: Whyne?
Sip the nectar of life while learning how to accurately discern the difference between nutty life and oaky life with today’s delicately fermented deal. For $95, you get one admission to any 2010 premium VIP all-inclusive tour from Long Island Wine Country. Your Groupon is good until year's end and gets you access to whichever event you would like to attend, although a $50 surcharge will apply to the August 14th Summer Never Ends tour with the Lobster Bake dinner. Wine may contain trace amounts of alcohol and other things unsuitable for minors (grapes), so tour-goers must be at least 21 years of age.
Some VIP events take place on recognized holidays like Valentine's Day, while others fall on unofficial holidays like Autumn Vine (9/12) and December Cheer (12/11)—although Long Island Wine Country probably won't take your suggestion of "Robert's Day," the holiday you made up to apologize for breaking your roommate's stereo. Check out all the available dates and causes for celebration here.
Every tour includes a bevy of extras aside from the top-notch wine samples and guidance. You'll start your adventure to winetown by boarding a luxury motor coach at one of five locations (pick the one closest to you when you buy your ticket). On the ride out to your destination, you'll be served complimentary snacks and water while receiving an audio tour from one of the soothing siren tour guides, who may or may not be secret mermaids (let your earbones decide). During your daylong tour, you'll hit up three wineries, where you'll dine on delicious lunch entrees and artisanal cheese, sip rare and finely aged wines of Clooney-esque refinement, and peruse the grounds and cellars of the prestigious grape converters. The leisurely pace of the tour ensures that you'll have time to truly savor each wine and winery without being hustled back onto a bus every five minutes. See what Long Island Wine Country means by "all-inclusive" by checking out the lengthy list of perks.
By the end of your tour, you'll be effortlessly swirling life's most stain-causing restorative elixir, as you will be a certified master of the wine galaxy. If you are unsatisfied with conquering the wine galaxy and want to take over the entire wine universe, you can add a wine blending class to select tours for an additional $45. In any one of these classes, you'll learn how to mix piquant potions like a Hogwarts graduate and demonstrate your proficiency by whipping up a custom bottle to take home.
