Wine can function as a social lubricant and conversation starter, especially if you seal off a cocktail party and slowly fill the room with it. Uncork a good time with this Groupon.
$55 for an In-Home Wine Tasting for 12–16 People Including Six Bottles of Wine (Up to $250 Value)
Two-hour events helmed by a wine adviser explore the art of tasting and pairing wine with food. Each tasting includes six bottles of wine, and the instructor will give the host suggestions for cheeses that would pair well with the bottles.
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.
