An in-depth knowledge of wine can enliven humdrum dinner parties, just as an in-depth knowledge of dynamite fishing can enliven foundering job interviews. Give palates an executive education with today’s Groupon: for $49, you get a wine lovers' package from WineTasting.org (a $445 value). The package includes the following:

WineTasting.org and its founder, wine expert and PBS television host Mark Phillips, enlighten budding sommeliers on the intricacies of grownup grape juices during informative classes. Pairs of oenophiles head to WineTasting.org's offices for 90-minute seminars, during which Phillips taps into his wealth of knowledge and giant grapes to educate guests on wine fundamentals. Attendees gain valuable vino insight such as how to get wine to the right temperature, the differences between glass types, and when it's OK to put ice cubes in glasses of white. The skilled instructor approaches each lecture with a comedic, non-snobby attitude, ensuring that patrons can easily bolster their knowledge of the subject without having to bribe wine-bar waiters.

After the lesson, students can grab a well-stocked wine kit for home studying and merrymaking. Two dishwasher-safe glasses, designed by Phillips, cradle beverages in hand-blown crystal, while three wine-slushy mixes—chosen at random—enlist white wine and water to turn flavored powders into icy frozen drinks such as mojitos, strawberry daiquiris, or margaritas. Like the best stuffed animals, the included wineglass holder fits around customers' necks and positions chalices in a cushy, chest-level pouch, alleviating hands of strenuous grasping duties. A six-month subscription to The Savvy Host further tests customers' newfound culinary awareness with recipes, video cooking demonstrations, and appropriate wine pairings for different meals emailed to cyber-students each month.

Customer Reviews

great experience and a lot of fun
Craig W. · June 14, 2013
Mark's class was educational and fun. We learned some new and interesting stuff about wine and wine tasting. We love Belifore, the restaurant it was held at, have been there many times before, food on the buffet wasn't as good as ordering off the menu, but decent value for the minimal additional fee.
