True wine connoisseurs teach themselves to distinguish varietals, identify flawed bottles, and cry pure chardonnay. Become one with the grape with today’s Groupon: for $59, you get a two-hour private in-home wine-tasting party for up to 16 guests from Wines for Humanity, valid within 30 miles of Green Bay, Fox Cities, and Oshkosh (up to a $300 value). The party includes:
- Seven bottles of wine for tasting
- Tasting glasses
- Professional wine expert
The skilled wine gurus at Wines for Humanity (WFH) pepper lessons in tasting technique with fascinating trivia throughout private wine-tasting parties. During each two-hour soiree, an experienced wine professional guides groups through sample sips of seven wine varietals sourced from premium wine regions around the globe. Over the course of the evening, budding oenophiles learn how to taste wine, pair wine with food, and dehydrate wine into liquid raisins.
WFH provides all materials necessary for the party—including glasses and dual-strawed wine helmets. However, hosts will be responsible for arranging hors d’oeuvres, which can be planned according to a custom recommendation list from WFH. At the end of the evening, attendees can select their favorite wines to add to their personal collections (average $20/bottle), with a portion of all proceeds benefiting a local charity.

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. Before the tasting event, Wines for Humanity will bring glasses to the home while selected wines will be delivered by a local retailer in the state of Illinois and hosts are encouraged to prepare complementary cheese and crackers. Wines that are selected for tasting run at an average of $20 per bottle.
