There is no better time to visit the wineries that when the days are longer and the temperatures are warmer. There is nothing that makes the day better than a full-bodied glass of wine. The wine tasting is a full experience that should be looked forward to because there is so much more than just the tipsy part. If this is the first time that you are doing the tour then here are some tips on how to go about it.
The costs will be less when you are doing the winery tour by yourself unlike when you do it in a group. Sometimes you will get free tours and wine samples but there are other times that they will charge a small amount to cover the sampling of the wines and a little extra for the specialty wines. There will also be a very wide variety. What you need to do here is consider the type that you want to try before the tour. Plan your itinerary in advance if you are planning on visiting many wineries and or national parks on experience park tour.
The planning of the winery tour can be overwhelming and that is why you should make sure that you use most of our time in planning. You will need a list of the wineries, the hours, time and most importantly the wine options that they have. Remember to include the shopping and the dining time as you plan for the several stops that you will be making for that day. Anything that involve alcohol should end with sober and responsible driving and that is why you should figure out who will be driving during your wine-hopping. Do not be fooled by the small amounts.
See, swirl and smell the wine before you can take that sip because that is the whole idea of the tour, to absorb and appreciate the characteristics of the wine. The tour is all about learning and that is why you should ask questions. If you come across wine that is too good to resist then you should feel free to take a bottle or two home. However, you do not have to buy and if you plan to then you should bring a cardboard box with you to avoid the rolling around in your trunk. This is a unique experience that you are supposed to enjoy and most importantly learn and you should do exactly that.
