Husband and wife team answered door in duty clothes and looking unshowered. Place was dirty. Very strange people- gave me the creeps. Wine smelled like a combo of bad grapes with a touch of sewage!!!! I could not drink it and was desperate to get out of there AAOS fast as possible. These people are either mentally unbalanced or scammers... More

I received a Groupon for a birthday gift and as I LOVE wine, I was so excited to attend. My friend and I showed up at 3pm, rang the bell, and an elderly lady answered the door in what seemed to be her night gown. She asked us for our secret password (which was never mentioned after that so we... More

We love visiting wineries, and this is one of the favorites of one of our friends. We went with them, and were told there was a "Groupon" we could purchase at the winery. It was totally my fault that I didn't ask how much...and for what...but...it wasn't worth it. We ended up paying almost $50.00 for a bottle of wine.... More

We did the groupon experience and have been to other Florida wineries and this was very enjoyable. Its a small place but the cutest couple own this and made it a fun experience. I live in Ohio and my girlfriend lives in Florida and this is the BEST wine I've found so far in the U.S. They make the wine... More

We attended the Wine Snob event and had a very enjoyable time. The owners know a great deal about wine and love to share their knowledge. We learned how to properly taste wine and how to know for sure that the wine brought to us is what we ordered and also drinkable. If you are looking for a fancy California... More

Despite the bad reviews, we had a great time. We also haven't done many wine tasting events like this. The owners were nice, the wine tasted good. We got a deal on Groupon so the price was great. We plan on returning for their wine and chocolate tasting event.

Having good friends with us made it survivable - room was hot, smelly - the couple was not professional at all - used the same glasses for all wines & when we left w/the wine glass, they didn't even clean them just wrapped them up in paper & handed them to us. Although they did provide us with entertainment as... More

This is one Groupon deal that should be discontinued. Without a doubt it was the worst wine tasting we have ever been to. Absolutely terrible. We had wine spilled on us, and not even good wine !

My wife and I bought this as a GroupOn. We read some of the other reviews on Tripadvisor and were a little cautious, but we figured for the GroupOn price let's try it. I'm so glad we did. First, this is Florida. If you are expecting a setting out of Sonoma or Napa, don't. I've been to all those places... More

We had a Groupon Deal for this, but it would be worth paying full price. We received 5 tastings each, 4 chocolates each, a full glass of wine each, and a bottle of wine to take home...plus we got to keep the glass. The owner was quite a character...had lots of stories to tell and was very knowledgeable regarding the... More
