Travel Tuesday: The Frugal Wine Taster
”The discovery of a wine is of greater moment than the discovery of a constellation. ~ Benjamin Franklin
A voyage of discovery is a fun experience in and of itself but add to the fact, uncovering finding great new wines makes the trip all the merrier. But for many, the cost of wine-discovery can add up quite quickly, so many opt to just stay home and drink the same wines they have always enjoyed.
But what if I told, there was a way to get some complimentary wine-tastings in a great location known and loved by many, called Sonoma County. Would you hoot, would you holler or perhaps just load up the wine-wagon with friends and family and make your way out to wine country for the weekend?
I think that you, in fact, would find a way to free-up sometime on that busy work-free weekend. So here's the good-news; Visa Signature and Sonoma County Vintners offer cardholders the following year-round benefits at over 60 select Sonoma wineries:*
- Two unique complimentary tastings per cardholder
- Savings on wine purchased same day in Tasting Room and non-wine purchases
- Discounted savings on Reserve tastings and unique wine-and-food pairings.
- Complimentary tasting details and benefits vary by winery, and you may wish to call ahead to confirm winery benefits.
Seems like a pretty good deal for the wandering wino and great way to kick-off what might otherwise be just a dull weekend. So you get your empty glass over to Sonoma and give those wines a swirl.
The weather is perfect right now, and again it's a great time to hang in Sonoma County. While you're there, I would recommend having lunch or dinner at The Girl and the Fig a fun gastronomical experience not to be missed. So until next time sip long and prosper cheers!
