If you’re in need of a new weekend date idea, improve your palate and tease your taste buds by taking a couples trip to a winery or brewery. Napa Valley is one of the world’s premier locations for fine wine. If you live on the West Coast, you can plan a romantic getaway to one of the region’s romantic vineyards. On the East Coast, north Georgia is home to some wineries too.

A Beer and Wine-Filled Date Idea

Is your partner more of a beer fan? New York City is home to a variety of wonderful options. The Brooklyn Brewery not only serves an assortment of beer, but it also offers tours and allows customers to order food from the surrounding area. Or with summer approaching, try the Standard Biergarten’s lovely outdoor facility, which is right below the beautiful High Line.

Put a spin on the winery date idea by visiting The Sommelier Society of America. Since 1954, the organization offers wine education classes and tasting programs for couples who want to become more knowledgeable about reds, whites, and roses.

Maybe you don’t have a weekend to plan a trip away. You and your partner could also enjoy a fun-filled day activity touring one of the famous Anheuser-Busch breweries. The St. Louis location is currently the number one ranked brewery in the United States. Tours are available in four other states as well.
