Wine and fine food is a matched pair, like Cagney and Lacey or Wayne Gretzky and the only thing people remember about hockey. Slapstick your face with flavor using today's Groupon: for $59, you get an in-home wine tasting for up to 16 people from Wines for Humanity (up to a $296 value).
Wines for Humanity's seasoned wine aficionados travel to homes to lead up to 16 sippers in an up to two-hour tasting party, toting along seven bottles of wine from vineyards around the world. As the expert discusses the art of correctly experiencing each sip of wine, groups sniff, swirl, and sip a septet of vintages that envelop mouths in flavor like braces made from licorice. While discovering which varieties suit personal palates, drinkers take in knowledge about complementary flavors with guided wine-and-food pairings.
A portion of the bottle-sale proceeds goes toward helping local families on the brink of homelessness, allowing guests to help improve their community without running for mayor or becoming a clandestine superhero.
Wines for Humanity
Wines for Humanity's professional wine advisers lead in-home tastings that teach guests the finer points of a five-point wine-tasting technique, all while raising funds for local charities. As students sip several exclusive vintages, they learn to judge wines' colors, aromas, and voting records, as well as pick out suitable food pairings. Wine Advisors will arrive half an hour before the tasting begins bringing the tasting glasses and wine. Hosts are encouraged to prepare suggested cheese pairings and crackers to complement the wines. Wines that are selected for tasting run at an average of $20 per bottle. A portion of every bottle selected for your own enjoyment generates a donation for UMOM New Day Centers, a charity that supports the prevention of homelessness for families with children in Maricopa County.
