Don’t Travel July 4th! Stay Close to Home and Visit a Winery!

A Maryland Sparkling Wine

The news has been reporting that travel over the 4th of July  is expected to rise. Rather than getting involved in intense traffic congestion, why not stay close to home and enjoy visiting a winery in your neighborhood? You may even want to consider leaving the driving to Lyft or Uber.

In a winery tasting room you can enjoy the atmosphere while having an enjoyable conversation with other like-minded wine enthusiasts. And the topics are not just about wine, but can cover anything from food to travel and so much more. Do yourself a favor and visit a nearby winery and save the frustration of hours of driving.

  • Wines produced in the United States can rival those from other countries.
  • The top six states for producing wine include: California, Oregon, Washington, Texas, Virginia and New York.
  • Visitors to wineries often have access to wines that are not available in wine shops. 
  • There are many types of wine including the still wines that may be dry or sweet, sparkling wines and fruit wines. Other alcoholic beverages that might be found in a winery tasting room are hard ciders and distilled spirits.
