Wine Country

To learn about the people who inhabit this prosperous paradise, begin your journey by taking a peaceful drive on winding country lanes threading across gently rolling hills. Stop in at any winery—whether it's a huge castle, modern architectural wonder or small family-run shop, you’ll be warmly greeted by hosts eager to explain their craft. Chat with local grocers at tidy markets and roadside stands. They'll be happy to help you create a simple, yet elegant picnic with flavorsome fruits and vegetables fresh from the fields. Visit quaint towns and chat with shopkeepers in boutiques and general stores to get the inside scoop—you may learn that a regionally renowned gourmet operates the rather nondescript café on the main drag.
