My first born son turns 21 during his college spring break in March 2012. He has asked us to take him to several wineries for a birthday trip.
We're most interested in the wine, of course. He enjoys the reds we serve at home from California, Rhone, Bordeaux, and Chile. But I'd like for him to be able to sample the full spectrum of what's available to help him learn what he likes.
We're also interested in the 'tasting experience' - a pretty room; a knowledgeable host; viticulture & viniculture tours, a picnic area or restaurant, etc.
We have previously visited only a few North Carolina wineries. Of these, Raffaldini is one that we will return to. http://www.raffaldini.com/visitus.php
We have not been to Childress, but plan to visit. http://www.childressvineyards.com/win...
Which additional wineries or tasting rooms do you suggest? We may drive up into Virginia.
Thanks much! We'll also need help with restaurants, delis & bakeries once we know the winery itinerary.
