As the temperatures begin to drop and the days begin to get shorter, many of us have put outdoor activities out of sight and out of mind. Instead of being outside in the crisp weather, most of us probably prefer relaxing in a warm place, watching a movie or reading a book.
What if we told you, however, that there is a foodie outdoor activity that is absolutely magical in autumn?
Vineyard tourism in autumn is one of the best things to do if you’re a travel and food lover. While the grapes of the harvest have already been collected and the vines are being prepared for the next crop of grapes, this doesn’t mean that the magic of the vine has already gone away.
Vineyards are always located in regions that, naturally, get cooler in autumn and winter. This leads the leaves of the grapevines to undergo the natural process of regeneration. While the vines are typically ugly and bare in winter, the spectacle of seeing the vine’s leaves change colors in autumn is unforgettable.
So, don’t think twice. If you are considering a visit to a vineyard, keep autumn in mind as a time of the year to do so. The spectacle of striking oranges, reds, and yellows combined with the slower crowds and the peacefulness of this season make autumn a perfect option for ecotourism.
You still have a few weeks left for the season so hurry up!
