Embark on a wine tour this Summer
Have you thought to add taste to a tour you are taking? Rather than taking the traditional trip where you go to a beach to relax or an-out-of-the city excursion on a hike you can now add a wine tasting tour to chase out the boring. It is not just the wine that you are getting to taste here.
What is wine?!
Wine is an ancient drink. We read of it in the ancient tales of gods and warriors. It seems that extracting juice from the grape fruit and drinking it after somewhat fermenting was an industry of its own from a long time. Today it has grown and not only the famed Italian or French wine, but also countries such as Australia, Chile and even India is in to the business. However, the best wine comes from a Mediterranean sort of a climate, where the grapes are grown with the right water, sun and in the right soil type. The weather plays an important role in growing of any plant; when the early settlers understood this is an ideal soil and climate for the vineyards, they wasted no time to get in to the satisfying agricultural trip down history lane.
What will you be experiencing?
Most wine tours will take you to a well known vineyard. These areas are so intertwined with the growing they have their own culture. You can witness the methods of making of wine; taste different types of it that after this you will never confuse “woody” with “fruity”. There will be various events where you can be a spectator; such as pseudo-religious rituals. You can also be a part in some rituals such as singing and bonfires. You can easily reserve your seat in one of these tours via the internet; when you visit the sites and see a sign which says book now as limited spots available you know it is agood one where everyone is trying to score a seat!
Once you are in a tour like this, do not succumb to your fears of integration. These can only be experiencedif you really get in to it and take part as an actual member of them. You can work with them, go grape picking, help with the chores of a wine house and more. Most of them will provide the relevant costumes and youcan fully immerse in to the act of becoming a wine maker in no time.
Take a chance and enjoy life when you are out and about. It is an opportunity of a lifetime when you get to visit a true vineyard and experience the real deal.
