A full-bodied experience
Apart from the people and the experiences you’ll encounter while RVing, you’ll try some delicious food, see some amazing landscapes, and taste some awesome wine. These wines aren’t like the bottles you can get at your local store. They’re full of notes and sensations that you won’t get anywhere else but right where you stand. They may be sweet, they may be dry, but they will always be made with dedication and experience. Hold on to your tumblers, because here are our top vineyards you should try while touring the U.S.
A chilly assignation
If you’re taking a trip to the great white north, then you won’t want to miss Bear Creek Winery and Lodging in Homer, Alaska. The thing we love about this winery is that it’s also a lodge worthy of visiting in its own right.
The lodge has everything you’d want – from hiking trails to a stone hot tub and koi pond. Their wines are second to none in Alaska, and if you take advantage of their tasting room, you can get discounts on the wine you purchase. Just a fair warning: they’re not messing around with their wine, and some of them sport up to a 17% alcohol content, so you just may find yourself taking advantage of their lodgings whether you planned to stay or not.
From renowned Napa Valley
If you’re visiting Duckhorn Vineyards, be sure to make a reservation, because this place is popular. In 2017, one of their wines won wine of the year from Wine Spectator, and it’s easy to see why. Their wines are bursting with flavor and have nice fruity notes that you won’t easily forget. The vineyard runs events throughout the year that include wine, food, and a lot of fun. If you’re making a trip to Duckhorn, be sure to coordinate it with one of their amazing events.
Wine on the Missouri River
Augusta Winery knows that nothing pairs with wine as well as cheese and meats, and when you indulge in their lovely grounds and delightful wines, you can do so while nibbling on cheese and sausage that’s produced locally. Their wines aren’t made in large batches because they want to give the proper care and attention to each of the lots they produce. They have events running throughout 2019, and you can even book private tastings if you want to take some friends along with you for the fun!
Winery from the 1800s
Pontotoc Vineyards of Pontotoc, Texas, has a history that reaches back to 1872. While the area went through many hardships that would have destroyed any other business, the vineyard persevered. Now the vineyard encompasses the entirety of the old town that stood there, and it’s open for you to enjoy. Experience the flavors and history of this location with a wine tasting, and take home a bottle of their wine made from locally grown grapes!
Create wine memories in Pennsylvania
Blue Ride Estate Vineyard & Winery is another that believes in creating only small batches of wine to ensure that flavor is never lost in an attempt to produce large lots. They offer wines that range from one aged underground to one featuring pineapple and papaya. Their apple wine holds notes of vanilla and cinnamon, while their chardonnay is bursting with lemon, fig, and mango. Their wines are priced perfectly for you to take a bottle of each lot home with you to enjoy the flavors for weeks to come!
