Turning water into wine is more than an impressive and popular wedding trick—it's also a handy way to jazz up your next bath or scuba-diving quest for submerged cheese and crackers. Give grape-altering skills a kick-start with today's Groupon: for $65, you get a customized winemaking experience at Yonge Street Winery (a $130 value). This Groupon is valid for redemption at one of two locations—Yonge Street Winery in Aurora or Humber Valley Winery in Bolton.
Yonge Street Winery offers custom-crafted artisan wines, quality crystal stemware, and stylish storing solutions for both the fervent wine enthusiast and the casual dabbler in the drinkable grape. The winery's custom winemaking experience offers guests the chance to compose their own flavourful libation over the course of about a month and a half. The process begins with customers meeting with Yonge Street Winery's consultants to choose one varietal from the extensive list of varietals imported from vineyards around the world. After the initial consultation, which lasts approximately 10 minutes, clients will turn over the red-and-white reins to the winery's grape wranglers, and they’ll bring the blend to flavourful fruition over the course of approximately a month and a half. At the end of the process, clients will return to package and take home all 23 litres of the libation (about 30 750ml bottles), leaving the winery with the smug smile seen only in victorious vintners. Included in this deal are labels, foils, tax, corks, and corkage fees. Bottles are not included in this deal; you may bring your own, or purchase some from the winery for $1.25 each.
Your Groupon may also be applied toward the purchase of a Vino Del Vida wine package ($130), as well as for an upgrade toward the purchase of a premium package of imported wines, featuring more than 40 choices available from countries such as Italy, Chile, France, and Australia. Brush up on your own beverage-fermenting skills in anticipation for the next wine drought, or craft a customized carafe to commemorate your apartment's cable installation. Call ahead for an appointment.
