Tick one off your bucket list – go on a wine tour! 4 reasons a wine tour will change your life:
I recently traveled to the most popular wine region in Mexico – the Guadalupe Valley. It’s beautiful climate and scenery make it the perfect destination for an escapism getaway emerged in stunning gastronomy and unforgettable home grown wines.
- You do not have to like wine to go on a wine tour!
I will be very truthful here and say that honestly, I didn’t like the taste of wine before I left for Mexico – or so I thought. There are hundreds of different types of grape that can be made into wine in countless ways. Some wines can certainly be an acquired taste, but I swear you will find a wine that you love the taste of and you’ll never look back! Another reason why you don’t have to actually like wine to decide to go on a wine tour is the absolute fact that with great wine, comes great food. You can drink water all day long in the vineyards because either way, your taste buds are going to be tickled and satisfied time and again throughout your trip.
- The views are worth the drive.
The drives between vineyards are sometimes long, but I swear it’s going to be the best game of “I Spy” you’ll ever play! The natural scenery surrounding wine valley regions is unlike any other, with gorgeous rocky mountains and rolling green hills with an outstretch of miles and miles of fields of grape vines. The wine valleys are also usually the perfect climate for beautiful colored flowers and plants that any nature lover will adore. The scenery is just so diverse that you can go from driving in desert dust to lush greenery in a matter of minutes.
3. The architecture is incredible!
The hotels in the Guadalupe Wine Valley Region have a very distinct architecture with open plan hotels, with the walls of the hotel being borderline nonexistent. Some of the hotels focus on sustainability and are built with locally recycled materials and some even use items like freight containers to convert into individual hotel rooms, galleries and restaurants. The boutique hotels in the Guadalupe Valley are mesmerizing in the way they use the natural environment to achieve a modern, environmentally friendly hospitality experience.
4. Utter Tranquility in the escape to the valley.
There is something very calming about being in a wine valley region where you learn about the ways the world around us fit in with each other. Like how the moisture travels up and down a grape vine depending on how high the moon is. Or how people who live such simple lives in a random valley in Mexico serve some of the best wine to some of the world’s most affluent areas. Or how your mind and body can imitate life by mimicking the calm environment we’re in to provide us with complete relaxation.
