Imagine sitting on a veranda and pouring a glass of your favorite varietal while watching the sun set over the vineyards. Now, imagine taking a short stroll back to your private suite and taking a dip in your room's Jacuzzi bath or warming up by the fireplace before calling it a night. Sound enticing?
No longer are breakfast rooms the only place at a B&B where you can find an offering that will tickle your palette. Tasting rooms at B&B wineries are putting pinot noirs, cabernets, zinfandels and more right at your fingertips (or a short walk from your guest room). After enjoying a few sips, you can explore the picturesque rolling hills and walk vineyard paths surrounding the inn.
With the arrival of fall comes the wine harvest season. So, make plans to spend a weekend at one of these six B&B wineries and raise a glass to a fantastic getaway.
