We are all in the same boat. Gas prices around the country have reached an all time with most people paying at least $4.00/gallon. Trips to the grocery store are now debated with "Do we really need milk? Can we wait until we run out of a few other items before we make a trip? Is there a list because we can't make multiple trips...". As a result, some think traveling to Wine Country is out of the question. Can you imagine driving from winery to winery while your precious gas is siphoned off by roads  Out of the question you reply.
However, there is an easy solution to this problem. Drive to one spot...ONE SPOT...and taste hundreds of wines all at once. Well, maybe not all at once...There are a slew of Wine & Food festivals around the country and one is probably about to happen in your neck of the woods. Check the list below, buy tickets, and let the tasting begin!
