Specialised social gatherings with a focus on commercial exchange have been encouraged throughout history including papyrus parties hosted by erstwhile Egyptian royalty desiring quality writing material, sword socials for medieval maidens aiming to surprise husbands and tempestuous Tupperware shindigs for housewives desiring quality storage devices. Embrace this trend with today’s deal: $19 for a 60-minute wine tasting party for six people to sample 12 quality wines and receive one bottle of premium flagship wine from Pieroth ($126 value).
Experienced wine connoisseurs, casual appreciators and interested oenologists will clear the cellar racks at the prospect of sampling top-shelf quality wines with five friends in the comfort of familiar surroundings. An informed personal Pieroth professional will painlessly guide protagonists through 12 quality tastings – generally six whites and six reds. Sample, swallow or spit such white wine subtleties as the 2009 Nussdorfer Herrenberg from Pfalz, the 2006 Muscat Blanc Late Harvest from Victoria or the 2009 Burg Layer Schlosskapelle. Roll, reel and rotate ruby red drops including the 2009 Domaine Springton from Australia, the 2006 Penedes Crianza from Spain or the 2009 Ile de Beaute les Beauvals from France. While the event is highly entertaining, Groupon Australianites will also increase knowledge of viticulture, gain a greater appreciation for wine and learn appropriate clothing to wear whilst sipping a merlot.
Hailing from the fertile wine-producing region of the Nahe in Germany, the name Ferdinand Pieroth is synonymous with good living, strong family traditions and quality wein, German for wine. Through their reputation Pieroth has established extensive bonds with other quality winemakers around the world. Groupon Australianites who arrange their wine tasting event will receive one bottle of a flagship wine, Blue bottled Nahe Kabinett vintage ($26 value).
