There are so many vineyards scattered around the world. And yet, new vineyards, and wineries, seem to pop up every year. You may already have your favorite wine to drink. But why not choose a couple vineyards to visit for wine tastings while you are on a family vacation? You can easily book a wine tasting at any winery near your vacation destination. And it is even better if you can show your love to those wineries on National Wine Day.
I thought I would share three vineyards to visit for wine tastings. Each one is in a fabulous area, so your vacation won’t just be all about the wine.
The Historic Del Dotto Winery and Caves is located in Napa Valley. However, it is not their only location. Please keep this in mind if you are interested in seeing their other vineyards during your family vacation in California.
The owner’s family has been in the winemaking business since the 1400s. So, you can say he had some knowledge about the industry when he purchased the Rutherford property. On that property sat a Frank Lloyd Wright craftsman house from 1912.
The tasting room on the property was opened in 1999. There is also a hand dug cave on the property. That cave was dug back in 1885.
A more recent addition to another piece of their property is the Del Dotto Venetian Estate. It is at that estate where a culinary program is now held. If you are interested in visiting there, your family must travel to St. Helena, California.
A visit to this vineyard will have you exploring the cave and drinking some fine wines during your wine tastings experience. The Del Dotto Winery currently produces cabernet sauvignon, cabernet franc, merlot, pinot noir, chardonnay, and sauvignon blanc.
One of the best ways to visit this vineyard in the Napa Valley is to take a guided tour via a private jet. These tours allow you to accomplish more during a family vacation in a few days than you could in a couple weeks.
During this tour via private jet, you will see so much more than the Napa Valley. The rest of your time will be spent in San Francisco, Zion National Park, Grand Canyon, Sedona, and Las Vegas.

Boundary Breaks is a fabulous vineyard located in the Finger Lakes in New York State. This winery is part of the Seneca Lake Wine Trail. So, this may be a wine tastings family vacation that focuses on wine more than anything else.
However, there are other exciting activities to keep you all busy. I recommend checking out the Rue Claire Lavender Farm. Picking your own blueberries will be fun at Wolftree. And you can’t go wrong with a little time spent at Finger Lakes National Forest or on the shores of Seneca Lake.
But back to the winery. This vineyard is quite close to Seneca Lake. This location is excellent for growing grapes used in wine because the lake moderates the temperature at the vineyard. The warmer air during the winter ensures the grapes get quite ripe during what is normally a short growing season.
Boundary Breaks began with Riesling wines. They sell Rieslings that are sparkling, dry, and sweet. And don’t worry if you prefer red wines. They have an excellent cabernet franc that will check off all the boxes.
The best vineyards to visit for wine tastings on National Wine Day are over in Italy. Avignonesi is located in the Tuscany region. If you are ready to travel out of the country with your family for your next vacation, I recommend checking out this vineyard.
This may not be one of the oldest vineyards, or wineries, in Italy. However, it has become quite popular thanks to the owner’s respect for the ecosystem and sustainability. This is one of the best wineries in the world for organic wines.
The vineyards grow grapes for white, rose, and red wines. During your visit, you will have the opportunity to do a wine tasting, explore the vineyards, and participate in a cooking class. Although, the hot air balloon rides maybe your favorite option.
Avignonesi is closed during the months of January and February each year. So, you must keep that in mind when you are deciding on when to take your next family vacation.
These are three of the vineyards you may want to consider visiting for a wine tasting on National Wine Day. However, we both know there are many others that deserve your attention as well. So, make a reservation at your favorite winery and have a glass or two, as you think about where you want to take an amazing family vacation.
