Travel Hack: Wine and Fall Colors

"Wine is to women as duct tape is to men- it fixes everything!"

Fall Cocktail of the Week:

Caramel Apple Spritzers

These cute and tasty spritzers from Delish unite the sweet flavors of caramel and cinnamon with the fruity flavors of green apple and moscato to create a delectable concoction that you will want to enjoy throughout the rest of fall.

 

 

There are very few things in life better than visiting vineyards, seeing the behind-the-scenes of how your favorite alcoholic beverages are made, and sipping many different varieties of your favorite wines. But wait a minute- we can think of one!  Imagine all of that plus beautiful fall colors throughout the entire vineyard...that's exactly what we are here to provide.  We have searched far and wide and come up with a list of a few of the best vineyards to visit if you are looking both for great wine and the beauty of fall!

1. Sonoma-Cutrer

Located in the Russian River Valley in California, this beautiful vineyard is surrounded by excellent dining locations and wines for your enjoyment. The area also offers bike and kayak rides through this vineyard and those surrounding it. The area will be home to beautiful and vibrant autumn-colored leaves soon so fall into the California spirit as soon as possible!

2. Wagner Vineyards Estate Winery

In the Finger Lakes of New York (which Trip Advisor just named one of the top wine destinations in the world- go east coast!) you will find this homey vineyard that is home to a large collection of beautiful fall foliage that you can admire as you sip.

3. New England Coastal Wine Trail

Ok, so it's not a vineyard. But it's an entire trail! Come on, how could we not include it? The entire trail stretches from Cape Cod to Connecticut and is home to not one, not two, not even three, but nine wineries! And the walk between them is full of beautiful fall leaves and sights. So put on your walking shoes and get to hiking the best wine trail there is!

4. Terra Blanca

Yakima Valley, Washington, where this beautiful vineyard is located, is the first official wine-producing area in Washington. Terra Blanca is famous for its eco-friendly wines at the end of yellow, gold, and red tree-lined country roads and is a must-visit travel destination for any lover of wine and fall.

5. Jefferson Vineyards

Part of the Monticello Wine Trail in Virginia, these vineyards have as much beauty and flavor as they do historical value.  This vineyard was established back in 1774 and is home to some of the country's oldest wines and landscapes. This vineyard is perfect not just for the fall colors that fill its vast area but also for the significance it holds in history.
