Like Mike Tyson, wine is usually robust, is often boxed, and should never influence tattooing decisions. Imbibe the spirit of a champion with this Groupon.
$59 for an In-Home Wine Tasting for Up to 16 People with Six Bottles of Wine ($250 Value)
Over the course of a two-hour wine tasting, a trained wine adviser will divulge tips on serving wine, pairing food, and sussing out Draculas by their beverage choice. Hosts need only to provide cheese, crackers, and a table for glassware—the wine experts bring everything else, including glasses and six bottles of wine. Guests may choose to purchase a bottle (average price is $20), and an average of $2 from every purchase benefits local charities working to prevent homelessness for families with children.
Wines for Humanity
After returning from a mission trip to Bolivia, Anton Steinhart felt an urge to help families on the brink of homelessness in his own community. Armed with years of wine-industry experience, a charitable heart, and varietal-appropriate glassware, Anton began hosting in-home tasting events to benefit families in need. Since 1997, his initiative has raised more than half a million dollars for homelessness prevention while exposing of-age imbibers to new wines. During in-home tastings, wine advisers educate guests on tasting protocols, recipe pairings, and how to administer an impromptu Rorschach test using wine stains.
