How does that sound? When you are leading a hectic life in a city, anything that has to do with the outdoors and a change of scenery would sound great. That is how a weekend should be spent, not simply walking through stores and malls in the concrete jungle of urban landscapes. If you are lucky to have vineyards a few hours’ drive from the city, you cannot ask for more.
Today wine tourism is an exclusive tourism category that makes it possible for anyone to spend a weekend or more at a vineyard and explore wining, dining and even recreational activities in such a place. Gone are the days when one would have to take permission to visit a vineyard owned by a private individual. Nowadays, most vineyards are tying up with travel and tour operators or list their services online for tourists to come and spend weekends, a day, stay in groups or even avail wedding packages here. If you are traveling across Australia, you can indulge in Barossa wine tours here.
A wonderful vineyard experience
Vineyards are usually located in sub tropic climate. Hence, many countries have certain regions which are optimal for vineyards as grapes can be cultivated in such places. When you visit a vineyard it usually has a winery associated with it. You might plan to visit a vineyard by itself or make it part of the Adelaide Kangaroo Island tour with an organized tour operator. Vineyards are usually located in places where summers are hot and dry while winters are mild. Hence, there are certain times of the year when visiting a vineyard will guarantee you a pleasant stay. Most vineyards have rolling greens and scenic landscapes around. When you opt for a vineyard visit or a stay, it usually includes a package deal that has rooms for accommodation, food and drinks on the menu. Some even have tours around the region to check out local attractions. In case someone wishes to travel in a group or plan a wedding in a vineyard, bookings can be made in advance with a tour operator or directly with a vineyard owner. Such customized booking includes selecting menu for the different meals, choice of accommodation, décor and services required alongside the use of different facilities.
No matter how you experience a vineyard, take the time to explore the outdoors, relax and unwind. A vineyard trip should be all about being outdoors, sampling wine and food selections as offered on the premises. It is also ideal for couples as they get a chance to be in a romantic and the natural environment.
