There’s so much that goes into planning the perfect wine country vacation. From choosing where to stay to who you’re going with, there’s a lot to consider! As wine country locals here at WC Lodging, we’re here to help make your next getaway the best one yet. That’s why we’ve put together 5 ways to enhance your next wine country vacation!
Hire a Car Service
One of the best ways to explore wine country is to hire a car service. This way, everyone in your party can sit back, relax, and enjoy the scenic routes without having to decide who’s going to be the designated driver after a fun outing. A professional driver will know the area, and can also offer insider tips on where to find the best restaurants and attractions. We’ve got a few car service recommendations listed here.
Hire a Private Chef
Whether it’s just you and your special someone, your family, or group of friends, hiring a private chef can be a great way to enhance your wine country vacation – especially after a long day of exploring! You and your party can enjoy a delicious meal in the comfort of your own vacation rental, without the hassle of making reservations or driving to a restaurant. Many private chefs here in wine country specialize in creating menus that pair perfectly with local wines, so be sure to ask about this when you’re making arrangements!
Plan Ahead by Making Reservations in Advance
Nothing dampens a vacation more than having to wait a long time before dining or an attraction. The best way to maximize your time in wine country is to plan ahead and make reservations – not just to restaurants but to wine tours and other local attractions if possible. We highly recommend this for groups with 6 or more guests.
Take a Guided Tour
Another way to enhance your wine country vacation is to take a guided tour! Guided tours can provide a wealth of information about the local history, culture, and winemaking process. Choose from a variety of tours, including walking tours, group tours, bike tours, and more! Need help deciding what to do first? Check out our local recommendations.
