What You'll Get
Drinking wine is an activity that sometimes makes people believe they’re funnier, smarter, and two feet taller than they actually are. Today’s Groupon prolongs the pleasant illusion with $25 worth of wine for $12 at WineStyles in Wesley Chapel. This stellar walk-in wine cellar contains a cozy bar where you can try wines by the glass or bottle—your Groupon is toward either.
There are about 100–150 different bottles of wine for $25 or less. If you'd rather try a few varieties, individual glasses are between $6 and $12. Wines range from local Floridian grape escapes to international sensations hailing from the farthest yak-filled regions of the globe. Well-educated sommeliers stand at attention behind the bar while others roam the grounds begging for questions like hungry inquiry-otters. Ask which bottle would be the perfect pairing for your upcoming goulash cook-off or how to remove wine stains from your puppy. Get a crash-course in fermented education before becoming culturally abuzz.
If you forget lessons learned from your trip to WineStyles, a detailed description card accompanies each bottle. Use it to reference the characteristics, flavors, and suggested food pairings of your newly acquired red, white, or ultra-rare cerulean. Wine consumers who are already experts can expand a robust repertoire beyond the usual go-to bottle, while novice sippers can receive an informal introduction to the high-octane and unforgiving world of competitive wine loving.
Valid at Wesley Chapel location only.
Though WineStyles in Wesley Chapel is still fairly new and doesn't have many reviews, the St. Petersburg Times was eager to cover it as the newest addition to this burgeoning franchise:
- …Melquist wants to do more than sell bottles. He hopes to make the store a "third place" for wine lovers to congregate, much like Starbucks has done for coffee connoisseurs. That's why he's adding a 750-square- foot patio and offering a bar inside to encourage sipping. – Lisa Buie, St. Petersburg Times

- My husband and I are Wine Club Members at WineStyles…The staff is so much fun to chat with while you talk. They are knowledgeable about the products, the vineyards, foods that are a good match ... you name it. – Melinda M., Yelp
- I work for…catering and we use them all the time. They are professional, helpful and have the best wine selection. Anytime we or one of our clients has needed wine with a bridal tasting, or for their reception we have gone to the pros! – Erin B, Yahoo! Local
