Four Reasons To Take A Winery Tour In The Fall

Wine vineyard tours offer an excellent way to spend a fun afternoon with friends, family, or just with your spouse as a way to reconnect after a hectic week with work and family obligations. Although winery tours are generally viewed as a popular summertime activity, experiencing them during fall has its own special magic. Following are four great reasons to book an autumn wine tasting tour. 

You'll Get Inspiration for Holiday Entertaining 

With the holidays right around the corner, it's time to stock up on celebratory beverages. Visiting various wineries provides the opportunity to sample different wines and discern which selections best meet your individual needs and preferences. Keep in mind that you'll be able to order your favorites from the vineyard at a later date, so jot down tasting notes on your smartphone, or go old-school and take along a small notebook and writing utensil. 

You'll Escape the Summer Heat 

Grapes love seasonal heat, and because winery tours involve a great deal of outdoor activity, participants often have issues with dealing with the high temperatures. However, cool, crisp fall weather provides a much more comfortable experience. This is particularly important for those seeking tours of the actual vineyards rather than simply remaining in an air conditioned tasting room. 

You'll Get to See Vibrant Autumn Foliage

Vineyards are typically located in rural areas with lots of deciduous trees with foliage that turns brilliant shades of yellow, gold, orange, red, and purple during autumn. Taking a winery tour during the fall means you're also getting an autumn foliage tour, so be sure to book a winery tour service so that you can relax and enjoy the stunning scenery instead of having to keep your eyes on the road.

You'll Miss the Maddening Crowds 

Not only will the roads that wind through wine country be less crowded, but the tasting rooms, vineyards, and any associated restaurants or picnic areas won't be overly crowded if you explore wineries during the fall. Not only will you not be rushed through tasting rooms or vineyard tours, but you'll also receive more individualized attention — which means you'll be able to talk to the vintners about specific wines in a more in-depth way than if they were dealing with throngs of people, and you'll be able to sample various wines at a more leisurely pace. 

Please don't hesitate to contact your local winery tour service for more information on booking a wine tour during autumn.
