In recent years, I've been gifting experiences over material things. While a new pair of headphones or beautiful eyeshadow palette are lovely gift options, they don't last forever. I've been gravitating more towards gifting experiences to my loved ones — from spa days to mini getaways. This holiday season, if you're struggling trying to figure out what to give your parents, bestie, or significant other, consider taking them on a unique trip. For your loved ones who are major wine aficionados, I've rounded up the best wine trips to give as a gift this year.
I know what you're thinking — wine trips sound expensive AF. But many of them are actually relatively affordable, especially since all of these experiences are located right here in the U.S. Not only are there incredible wine destinations in Sonoma and Napa Valley, but Oregon wine country is also incredible, as are the wineries in Montana and Montauk. You can give the gift of a beautiful destination, expertly paired with delicious food and fine wine.
You're probably in dire need of a vacay too, so give the gift of an ultra relaxing wino-friendly escape, and tag along on the trip. You'll make memories with your loved ones that will surely last for a lifetime.
