Take a trip to the Texas Hill Country during Texas Wine Month in October. During this month-long wine celebration, you can sample wines at 36 unique Hill Country wineries. Top off your relaxing retreat with a stay at a romantic Hill Country inn.
The Washington Wine Country includes Tri-Cities, Walla Walla Valley, Yakima Valley and some 240+ wineries. Known for its red blends and Rieslings, Washington is unique in that vineyards are often located up to 200 miles from where the wine is produced. We recommend booking a wine country bed and breakfast during Fall Release weekend, which happens the first week of November.
With four major wine regions, California produces 90% of US wine. Napa Valley offers the highest concentration of wineries, followed by the Central Coast. Plan your trip around one of the many wine events that take place here, including Harvest Wine Weekend in Paso Robles where you'll be invited into the tasting room and onto the crush pad!
Also, be sure to check out wine events in the Finger Lakes region, Willamette Valley, and Charlottesville, VA.
