Consider A Visit to a Wine Region for Mother’s Day

With Mother’s Day weekend quickly approaching consider a trip to a wine region for Mom. If a particular wine region visit is not possible, enjoy a picnic lunch with Mom at a winery in your own backyard.

A few of the wine regions we have visited that would make ideal spots to celebrate with your mother includes Temecula in southern California. Of course almost any region you visit in California will have fantastic wineries including Lake County, Sonoma and Napa Valleys, Suisun and Mendocino. In Oregon, think about a trip along the beautiful Columbia River that is home to many wineries. Texas also has its share of wineries especially in Texas Hill Country. On the east coast check out the wineries in the beautiful Finger Lakes in New York State. Virginia has several wine regions. Whether you are close to Washington, DC or not there are wineries in northern Virginia, around Charlottesville and along Interstates 66 and 81. Maryland has its share of wineries and is developing wine trails, with the most recent being the Frederick County Wine Trail. Don’t forget to check out the numerous wineries in Ohio as well as southern New Jersey, Colorado, Michigan and North Carolina. There is something different at every winery and your Mom will enjoy a day at a winery with family.

Many wineries enjoy having young children visit and often provide coloring books or small toys for them to play with. It does pay to call ahead to see if children are welcome in the tasting room.

If you are curious as to what to expect at a winery, check out the winery reviews of more than 465 wineries. on the Wine Trail Traveler website.

Later this week, I’ll delve into some of the specific Mother’s Day events being planned at some wineries.

Cheers! Kathy

    The Niagara Region has to be my greatest vacation destination. Each year that I visit I discover new things that I fall in love with.
