It’s no secret that wine country travel can be the most luxurious, accommodating and interesting on the planet. I’ve stayed at incredible hotels and inns, dined at outstanding restaurants and witnessed (like, Amen) the most astounding natural beauty a person could hope see before they die. And I don’t plan on stopping!
I’ve also driven the most-graveled of roads, fit in the most-tiny of parking spots and ran through the most-crowded of airports.
I’ve been to places where no one spoke my language and I’ve been to places where no one has spoke anything but English.
I’m opening up a new column here on L’occasion called, simply, Passport. I’ll share pictures, recommendations and experiences for the ultimate in wine country travel. If you want to taste the wines that give you something to brag about (however veiled), I hope that Passport will provide inspiration.
Here is a photo preview of places that have my traveler’s stamp:
