Groupon Guests

January 10, 2011 -- Grapes, like reclusive musicians, can produce intoxicating masterpieces if left alone and not forced to participate in amateur jam sessions. Today's Groupon celebrates the life's work of these vineyl visionaries: for $14, you get wine tasting, appetizers, and a bottle of wine (a $27.95 value) at The Rusty Nail in Sulphur. The Rusty Nail douses mouths with custom wines distilled in-house in its fully operational boutique winery. The Rusty Nail takes its name from the original hardware store constructed in 1906. Swirl and sip The Rusty Nail's line of robust reds, crisp whites, and dessert wines with a tasting ($7) while noshing on nibblings including an appetizer ($7) such as cheese platters, buffalo wings, and spinach and artichoke dip. Browse Rusty Nail's bottles of artisan wines, each named after famous shoes such as Peep Toe Chardonnay and Dorothy's Ruby Red Chianti (13.95 each), and all lovingly labeled with a logo of a shoe with a nail for its heel. Rusty Nail's gift shop includes wine bottle koozies, cork cages, shoe ornaments and more. --

Thank you for purchasing our offer on Groupon - you're in for a treat!

How does it work?

Your Rusty Nail Winery & Tasting Room Groupon is redeemable for:

  • One bottle of Rusty Nail Winery's private label wine (value $13.95)
  • One tasting flight from the Tasting Room (sample of any five wines)
  • One appetizer from the Rusty Nail Bistro
You can, of course, purchase any item outside the Groupon on a separate ticket during your visit.

Choose from any of our private label wines valued at $13.95.  There are currently ten wines available at this price point with more coming soon.  


The tasting is done at our Tasting Room, guided by our Tasting Room hosts.  We currently have 17 wines on our complete tasting menu with more expected in early February and more in the Summer of 2011. You are welcome to try any five. You're not limited on which wines you can taste - anything we have open and available for tasting is available to you. We are all about finding fun and pleasure in wines.  We can make recommendations based on what style you normally prefer, or help you to find something new and exciting. Our goal is to help you find what you'll like.

You may choose one scrumptious appetizer from our Bistro menu.  Appetizers are subject to availability.  Examples of appetizers on our regular menu are: cheese platters, spinach and artichoke dip, chips and queso, buffalo wings, and jalapeno poppers.

When planning your visit, please check the Directions & Hours page on our website for maps and operating hours.  You can also use Google Maps and related GPS systems.
