Wine tourism is not as fuddy-daddy as you might think it is. An increasing number of younger people are getting curious about the industry, which has demolished the stereotypical view of wineries and predominantly senior visitors. Wine tourism is getting cool.
This change has taken place for multiple reasons. Firstly, with the rise of entrepreneurship and intense competition in life an increasing number of young people getting burnt out with an overwhelming desire to recharge. The easiest way to turn off is to spend your evening with a glass of wine, the more complex, and far more enjoyable option, on the other hand, is to travel, preferably somewhere where peace and quiet could be found. By combining the two, you could clearly find the perfect holiday idea – wine tourism.
According to the studies, younger crowds visiting wineries on their holidays seem to soak up the entire atmosphere of the place, what can’t be said about the senior visitors who are only there for the wine.
It doesn’t matter how much you know about the wine, wine tourism is educational, enjoyable and just different. To give it a go, you could sign up for preplanned multiple day tours around the wineries, however, this might be too much of an experience for someone who is just starting out.
Choosing 2-3 wineries that are not too far from your main holiday destination would probably be just right. This would be sufficient to determine whether that’s something you enjoy, to experience local grapes and to purchase some souvenirs 🙂
That’s funny, but the regions with some of the most delicious grapes in the world are also the prettiest! Some of the most popular countries for wine tourism include Southwestern Europe + Italy, California, South America, South Africa, Australia, and New Zealand. The choice is amazing, isn’t it?
