What You'll Get
To make unfine wine, simply place grapes beneath a silk pillow, repeatedly mash your head against it, and then wring the pillowcase into a nearby mouth. Taste traditionally produced fine wines with today’s Groupon: for $20, you get a wine tasting for four at WineStyles in Irvine (a $60 value). Tasting are held every day except Monday.
Transform your wine technique from a semi-inspired slosh to a proper swirl by traversing a variety of distinct wine blends at WineStyles. The shop hosts a range of rare reds and whites at each tasting. And because WineStyles specializes in hard-to-find wines from vineyards large and small, you'll be sure to shake tongues with a few blends for the very first time.
You and a three-person posse of palate pals will spend the evening imbibing six vibrant varietals, allowing your taste buds to mingle with an array of intriguing flavor profiles they can chatter about later when the rest of the mouth is busy whistling to the live tunes presented on Saturday nights. If something strikes your fancy throughout the tasting, simply spill a few drops on your shirt and the expert staff will happily sniff out a corresponding bottle for you to purchase at a 10% discount.
Whether you're stopping in to expand your worldly wine knowledge or just to toss back a few cups of fermented fruit, a tasting at WineStyles is an appropriate complement to work weeks both savory and unsavory.
You must be 21 or older to use this Groupon.
