While wine is clearly the draw for why people visit a specific wine region, studies have found “factors appear to influence wine tourists travel to a particular region, including the experience at the winery and general tourism opportunities in the area.”
In other words,wine tourists seek a broad range of experiences, not just a simple wine tasting.
At Carpe Travel we share the back story of wine, its region, the people making it standout, and of course where to sip, stay and what to do beyond the vines. Carpe Travel is dedicated to showcasing wine regions within the United States, as well as other wine regions around the world. (With every 50 states in the US producing wine, combining a vacation with a visit to wine country has never been easier!)
