We’re only two weeks away from the first day of spring, and we’ve just had yet another snowstorm. With it still feeling like the dead of winter, the thought of going on a beautiful wine tour has probably not crossed any of our minds recently. But what you may not realize is that a wine tour does not have to be a seasonal event. It is certainly a more popular event in the warmer months, but there are some benefits to taking a Charlottesville wine tour in the winter.
One of the main pluses is that there are significantly less crowds, allowing you to have a more intimate, personalized experience. The following article outlines the different benefits of taking a wine tour at different times of the year:
Guests are always asking me when the best time to go wine tasting would be. My answer ? “It depends!”The cooler weater of Spring starts showing the grass and flowers starting to bud as well as the grape vines. It’s not hot yet so the tasting rooms are not so busy. Many wines are released at this time so there are lots to choose from for your tastings. …
For me, though, the main draw to a winter wine tour is the scenery. Charlottesville wine country is beautiful to begin with, but cover it in a white fluffy coating, and it’s just stunning.
Since spring is not yet on the way, why not enjoy the beautiful snow while we have it? And with a glass of wine, there’s no need to worry about the chill.
