The Wine Cellar of Wisconsin in Elm Grove is offering a $20 gift card for only $10 through Thursday, January 5th.  This Groupon-like offer is for sale directly from the Wine Cellar.  They are calling their non-Groupon sale a “Grape-on”.

The $20 gift card can be used to purchase anything the Wine Cellar sells – wine, champagne, beer, glassware and accessories.  You can even use the gift card for admission to wine tasting events.

About a year ago, the Wine Cellar did the same offer, although it was through Groupon.  Several hundred people purchased the deal.  

To purchase this deal, you must visit The Wine Cellar of Wisconsin, located at 12910 West Bluemound Road by Thursday, January 5th.  The $20 gift cards can be redeemed starting Friday, January 6th, and have no expiration date. 

Three Tips for Gifting a Perfect Bottle of Wine

With Christmas less than a week away, we invited Joel Freeborn, owner of Wine Cellar of Wisconsin, to share some suggestions on how to buy the perfect bottle of wine for a gift. 


Well, here we are, just a few shopping days to go, and you still haven’t found the right gift for the wine lover on your list.  Have no fear: Just follow these three simple tips, and you’ll have a bottle they will talk about for years to come!

1. Learn their preferences. The wine universe is full of widely varied flavors. Knowing that your gift recipient loves wine is certainly helpful, but it’s not always enough; for example, even the most passionate ‘Big Red’ fanatic may not care for Chardonnay.  If you can uncover their very basic preferences of red vs. white, or sweet vs. dry, that alone will go a long way towards picking a bottle they will love.  If at all possible, try to gather more specific information like preferred grapes or regions, as it will lead you even closer to the bulls-eye.

2. Know your budget. Quality wine is available at every price point from $7 to the moon, and almost all of it is priced appropriately (in other words, $15 bottles are better than $8 bottles, $40 bottles are better than $20 bottles, and so on).  Knowing in advance whether you are looking for a $15 bottle or a $50 bottle will significantly narrow your search and save time (you could use a little extra time during the holidays, right?).

3. Be adventurous. Armed with your recipient’s preferences and a budget, now you’re ready for the fun part! Head out to your favorite wine shop and see what jumps off of the shelf.  Don’t be afraid to grab a bottle you’ve never seen before, and by all means, ask the staff for their own personal suggestions.  You’ll walk out with a bottle that the wine lover on your list will be thrilled to pop.

Happy shopping, and have a wonderful holiday season!
