Going into the wine world is a lot like going to Disney World. There's an enormous amount of activities you can (and should!) do. Given the massive number of opportunities available to you, it can be challenging to pick only the most memorable ones you have time for during your trip to wine country. In this blog, you'll learn some essential fun things to do when you visit a winery.
In case you're wondering, you can still go on wine tours during the COVID-19 Pandemic! Just find yourself the ideal COVID-safe wine tour company!
Without further ado, let's get into our top picks.
#1. Go to a Wine Pairing Workshop
Pairing wine with the right foods is a delicate art and balance that you can learn at a workshop! Going to a wine pairing workshop will help you immensely when you have dinner in a vineyard.
#2. Paint with Wine
Have you ever pictured painting using wine?
For many of us during our everyday lives, painting with wine can sound insane given that we have access to far cheaper actual paint. But many wineries allow you to create pictures and paintings using wine pigments and left-over raw materials from making wine.
In this way, you can use the raw materials and pigment to paint memorable paintings while having a good time, even if you're no Picasso! As you paint, you also have the additional benefit of sipping fully processed wine to relax and get your creative juices flowing.
#3. Have Dinner in the Vine
Dinner in a private vineyard can be a truly magical experience. Having a high-quality chef prepare 4-5 course meals perfectly paired with your wine makes for an exquisite experience. The right company will also provide you with fresh produce from the farm, making your meal that much tastier.
#4. Take a Tour of Wine Country
During these tours, you can discover everything about wine-making, aging, breeding, and other techniques.
You'll become familiar with every part of the winery, go down wine trails, learn about the winery's history, and overall have a worry-free day.
