Valentines, Galentines, or Spoil Yourself this February in Wine Country
Plan the perfect wine country get away during the month of love ...
February is the undisputed month of love. Why not celebrate the one(s) you love with a wine country weekend. For those seeking a romantic weekend, wine country certainly sets the stage with many wineries offering intimate wine tasting experiences and proposal packages as well as hotels and spas rolling out the "rose petal" carpet so to speak with romance packages galore. With so many options readily available, surely even the most planning challenged among us can put together a dreamy romantic experience to remember.
For those living the single life or not ready to make it "official" you don't have to sit this holiday out. If we learned anything the past two years, it is that self-love and care is vitally important. So, spend a day or two spoiling yourself rotten in wine country. Love your body with a bike tour or hike through the vineyards. You'll be rewarded with fresh air and a solid sweat session so you can splurge with less guilt later on.
A tasting for one? Well, it's actually quite fun, but I suggest booking more immersive experiences such as a blending experience or wine & food pairing or cooking class. These hands on experiences tend to be very social not to mention super entertaining.
When it's time to dine you'll be feeling fine as you happily waltz past the line of hangry couples straight to your seat. Many of the most coveted restaurants offer bar seating and flying solo makes snagging a seat so much easier. Often bar seating is first come, but you could check to see if reservations are available if you don't want to leave it to chance.
Sure you could stay at home and Netflix, but then again you could binge on your favorite series from a super luxurious hotel bed with glass of wine in hand after a day being pampered and kneaded from head to toe at the spa.
Round up your gal pals for a Galentine's celebration. Leave the boyfriends, husbands, or significant others at home and spend a day showering your ride or die's with love. Make it a weekend by booking a vacation rental for your tribe for some serious catching up and gut busting laughter. Spend the days exploring tasting rooms and finding the perfect wines to enjoy later on over a casual dinner in with those who have been there through it all.
No matter how you celebrate or with whom, wine country offers something for everyone to feel the love this February.
