If you and your partner enjoy the luxury of indulging in expertly crafted wines, then attending a wine tasting event can be the perfect date idea. Watching a movie or dining at a crowded restaurant doesn’t always give you the opportunity to be intimate. Who could ask for more than learning about — and sipping on! –smooth wines in a cozy tasting room?

Date Idea for Wine Enthusiasts

Have you ever wanted to feel like former Bachelorette Kaitlyn Bristowe, and enjoy your favorite crisp, white wine while conversing with your beau? Well, it’s not as far-fetched as it sounds! Just find a winery in your area to give a classy and elegant edge to a typical weekend date idea. You can even find one that calls for more formal attire if that’s the style you and your lover prefer. You’ll be feeling like a reality TV star in no time!

Don’t forget to take your budget into account. This experience can be a full day event, and you may buy several bottles to take home. It’s also good to confirm the cost of the tastings. Some places charge a fee to participate, while other venues are free. Finally, if you’re hoping to purchase food to pair with your favorite new wine, you’ll have that additional cost to factor in. Check out www.winerybound.com to find the winery closest to you.

Follow this additional relationship advice if you don’t live near a winery: You can create your own wine-tasting experience by packing some bottles and enjoying a romantic picnic. Or you can look in your local paper for restaurants or wine shops in your area that are hosting tasting parties. For an even cozier option, consider planning your own event. Invite your partner over to your place for a private sampling of reds and whites from a particular region. You’ll be regular connoisseurs before you know it!
