If you and your partner enjoy wine, finding 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.  A winery or tasting room allows two people to indulge in conversation while being intellectually stimulating as well.

Of course, don’t forget to take your budget into account, since this experience can be a full day event, and leave you buying several take-home bottles.  It’s also good to confirm the cost of the tastings. Some places charge a fee to participate, while other venues are free.  Check out www.winerybound.com to find the winery closest to you.

If you don’t live near a winery, make a day out of it by packing your own bottles and enjoying a romantic picnic.  Or, you can look in your local paper for restaurants or wine shops in your area that are having tasting parties.   For an even cozier option, consider hosting your own event.  Invite your partner over to your place for a private sampling of reds and whites from a particular region.

Whether you’re a wine connoisseur, or simply looking to try something new, wine tasting is a fun, educational and intimate idea.
