Explorer Ponce de León abandoned his quest to discover the mythical land of wine after a tumble into the Fountain of Youth left him eternally underage. Take up his journey with today’s Groupon: for $59, you get a California Connoisseur winemaking experience at The Wine Place Markham (a $129 value, including HST).

A winner of a Markham Economist & Sun's Readers' Choice award in 2010, The Wine Place Markham has helped oenophiles craft their own quaffs for more than 15 years. The California Connoisseur winemaking experience brews 30 bottles' worth of wine with grape concentrates from the sun-kissed climes of the state made of solid gold. Burgeoning brewers choose from an array of white and red varietals such as zinfandel or pinot noir, pour in the yeast, then think about what they've done and let the wine ferment 4–6 weeks in The Wine Place's 2,000-square-foot, climate-controlled heritage building with an original cellar, where all equipment is meticulously cleaned and maintained. Today's deal includes professionally designed labels plus all corking and sealing, and vintners can either buy bottles ($1 per 750ml bottle) or bring their own to preserve their beloved elixir's bouquet, flavour, honest spirit, and velvety sheen. Experienced imbibers can upgrade to The Wine Place's more advanced kits for an additional fee.
