Fun - Wine Tasting

Every state in the US has at least one winery, except Alaska, and I'm probably wrong about that too. Where there are wineries, there's wine tasting. Wine tasting, as day long activity is no longer confined to California. Michigan, Texas, Virginia, New Mexico, even Indiana, have winery tours and tastings. In fact, I bet nearly all states have at least one wine trail - just type wine tour in to Google and you're sure to find several. We've had some fun the last couple of years riding around, hitting the tasting rooms.

Wine touring is a fine way to learn about new wines and to really get to try before you buy. And usually wineries and their tasting rooms are in very nice areas to visit, typically nestled in among rolling hills or mountains. If you don't know that one of the wineries sells food, I recommend packing a lunch. Most wineries will let you buy and drink on the premises, so prepare to have a picnic in a winery. Just make sure that if you are driving, either don't taste, or don't swallow!

    Definitely get someone else to drive. Where's the fun in spitting it out?
