Gifts from the Farm: A Christmas Countdown - Day 6

What's your favorite vision of a vineyard? Is it the bare vines in late winter, racing toward a spring bud break? Green leaves and row upon row of lush fruit in the early fall? Or, later, after harvest, the leaves turning green-to-gold-to-orange-to-brown, heralding the vines' winter dormancy?

Day 6 - Vineyards and Wine Touring/Tasting

LLF Vineyard

Wine is sunlight, held together by water.

The end of another harvest...

Isn't there just something lovely about a wine tasting room, too? Congenial and inviting, and most often there is a host willing to teach a thing or two, or just chat about wine. It's such a relaxing way to vacation.

Vineyard stays tend toward the romantic, rather than a full-blown family vacation (although not always - a couple of our vineyard members do allow children under 12!). There are also farms and ranches with wineries nearby that offer tastings or tours, or with vineyards of their own.

This, as Galileo might agree, is the gift of sunlight.

Take a peek at our list of vineyard members, as well as all the members who offer wine touring or tasting as an activity.
