Not just for drinking wine, these tours are also an education experience where the guest can tour the vineyard and view the harvest for the coming season. If you visit at the right time of year you may even be able to pick a few grapes yourself. After the tour of the site you will make your way inside to view how the wine is produced and after this the wine tasting begins.

Wine tours like every other type of tourism vary greatly in length and style, lasting anywhere from an afternoon to two weeks the choice is really yours. You can visit one or many different wineries and people use a variety of transport to get between them, from cars and limos to bikes and kayaks. If you’re fortunate enough to live within driving distance of a winery, drive on down have a great afternoon and bring home an addition to your wine collection.

Wineries open their doors to the public to sell their wine, it’s no secret. But after touring a vineyard in the sun and having a taste of merlot, chianti or pinots why not get a bottle for yourself?
