THE OUTDOORSY OENOPHILE’S WINE COUNTRY COMPANION by Stefani Jackenthal (my friend Stephani's first book. WooHoo!)
Written by one of the world’s foremost wine and travel experts Wanderlust Wining available at Amazon click here, is a fun delicious journey through many of America’s finest wine countries; exploring their outdoor activities and wine tasting specialties. It’s a one-stop-read to crafting active wine tasting trips in unique (and familiar) wine countries all over the United States.
Discover how to kick off mornings with action-packed activities and spend the remainder of the day sniffing, swirling and sipping through local wineries. Learn how to taste wine like a pro and be in the “local know” about the best hiking and mountain biking trails or places to paddle, surf and sail. Visit creameries, galleries or savor a sustainable wine dinner served in the middle of a vineyard.
Each fast-paced, easy-to-understand chapter offers light-handed wine education and historic facts about the area’s wines, local parks and sports outfitter, “must-go” restaurants, art galleries, markets, vineyards, and more.
