6 benefits of visiting a winery
For a wine-growing area, wine tourism is a fundamental piece when it comes to promoting and disseminating different places around the world.
It is true that the quantity of individuals who choose wine tourism increases year after year and this is often not by chance. The unforgettable experiences and moments that are present in each winery, making the same visitors become popularizers of this through the social networks and in talks with friends or simply through word of mouth.
Fortunately, the establishments have understood this, perfecting their activities and creating various options so that today a visit is not only to see where the wine is made, but also includes bicycles and horseback riding through vineyards, gastronomic options typical of the winery, accommodation, etc.
The benefits of visiting a winery are many, and here are the most important ones in my opinion:
1. Interact with owners
What better than to understand the history of a winery told by the owner himself. Stories that surely include immigrant great-grandparents, lands where there was nothing, and almost unknown work methodologies. This doesn't happen everywhere, mostly we can experience it in wineries that they called boutiques where the owner is the one will be welcoming us and take us to know their wines.
2. Meet the winemaker in person
For all oenophile there's nothing more satisfying than having the ability to interact personally with who creates the wine. This is an excellent opportunity to ask questions, we must take advantage of the moment to get rid of all our doubts and learn first-hand everything about wine.
3. Taste exclusive wines
Many times the wineries keep unique vintages for those who
visit them, those that are no longer on the market, or limited consignments of
wines that only saw the light of a few bottles. We will also have the
opportunity to try before anyone else wines that have not yet been launched on
the market, either while they are in the summer or directly from its tank or
barrel before the fractionation. Contact Hunter Valley Tours for a wine tours today!
4. Ask experts
This is related to point 2, where, in addition to the winemaker, we will be able to dialogue with the tour guides, qualified people to be able to answer everything that needs to do with the world of wine.
5. Dialogue with other visitors
The visits will not always be personalized or private (in the case of wanting it to be like that, it is specified in advance during the reservation), so we will find ourselves sharing moments with different people from everywhere the world, knowing their opinions and also taking note of our own anecdotes. The questions of others can help us to understand a little more about wine, its makers and its peculiarities. If its possible, try to interact with them and keep in touch as well.
6. Contemplate unique landscapes
Each winery has a unique style, from architecture and natural landscape to art spaces and incredible panoramas. Let's put cell phones aside for a moment, raise our heads and take that moment to perceive with all our senses what surrounds us. The aromas of these places are unique and I assure you that the next time we detect them, our memory will send us back to that moment, becoming unforgettable.
