If grapes could talk, they'd recount their dreams, the first time they got plucked, and the first time they felt victimized by nature's rumor mill—the vine. Taste the tales of the grape with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of small sandwiches, cheese, cold cut plates, wine, and more at Wine Detective in Pasadena.

Wine Detective acquaints taste buds with a range of red and white wines as well as a variety of sampler platters and Basque-style small sandwiches. Peruse the menu to feast on small, open-faced sandwiches decked out with smoked salmon, brie, and serrano ham ($11/selection of three), cold cut platters ($11/selection of three), or the duck-trio plate featuring foie gras mousse, duck salami, and duck prosciutto ($17). Order a cheese platter to enjoy goat's-milk cheese from France and cow's-milk cheese from Italy alongside quince paste, dried fig, and marcona almonds ($11/selection of three, $16/selection of five). All small plates can be partnered with more than 45 red wines, including a 2007 Spanish blend of garnacha, tempranillo, and mazuelo grapes ($10) as well as more than 20 white wines ($7–$14.95/glass). Get this Groupon to share the fermented-grape-juice magic with someone you love or someone you want to love you.

Slink into cozy sofas or post up at the sleek, wooden bar for an evening of epicurean escape. A convenient location in the Commons Plaza encourages weary shoppers to kick up their dominatrix, grape-crushing heels and relax after an afternoon of tiring plastic swiping.

This is a wonderful place with excellent service and a nice assortment of fabulous wines. The food menu offers tasty appetizers, salads, and a variety of cheeses to pair well with the wine. The place is quaint yet stylish and the perfect spot to get together with friends. Wine Detective is also a great place for people wanting to learn more about wine.
