arcadySnow.jpgMost people think the best time to visit Wine Country is during the Spring and Summer. But, wine tasting during the Winter season is just as fun. Read what Erika of Arcady Wine Tours and Bed and Breakfast in Virginia has to say....

Wine Tasting in the Winter Time
"Guests are always asking me when the best time to go wine tasting would be. My answer ? "It depends!"The cooler weather 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."

montereyMidweekItinerary.jpgSometimes you only have enough energy to buy the tickets (if you're not local), book the hotel and maybe read about all the things you want to do on your wine country trip. By the time the official day arrives for vacation, you've run out of planning time and isn't vacation about relaxing anyways! Maybe you didn't want to spend hours upon hours figuring out all the activities. Monterey CVB alleviates the planning stress and gives visitors a hour-by-hour itinerary.
