Do you love wine and wine tasting? You might be surprised about how much your kids will love a wine vacation!
"Wine is constant proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy" Benjamin Franklin
We have been exposing our daughter Mozart to vineyards and wine tasting from around the world since she was a few months old and she has loved it at every age. Here she is running through our Pinot Noir vineyard at two on a sunny spring day. Just like organic gardening and picking fruit in orchards, we value learning about nature up close and personal.
This video we took of our family wine vacation in Bordeaux, France gives you some idea of the fun that one can have together as a family. Biking through beautiful French Vineyards, swimming, tasting in caves, eating in charming French locations, countryside picnics, meeting French kids that live on vineyards, learning about science through wine making are just a few of the perks that please parents and kids. Here is another video we took a different year on a wine vacation in Alsace at harvest time. It was also easy for us to stick to our $23 dollar a day per person budget in both places.
We parents are actually not big wine drinkers, but we love the soulful aesthetics of beautiful vineyards that we have visited around the world. Here are a few: Santorini Wine And Vineyards
Vineyards are perfect for running, caves are exciting to explore and most wine tasting rooms have juice for kids to drink in wine glasses while parents taste. Have you ever tried wine tasting wih kids?
