Four Reasons to Go Wine Tasting with Kids

Posted on | August 21, 2012 | 1 Comment


Cycling to wineries is a fun day out for parents and kids. Cycling means you get to visit less wineries but it’s a great active day even with little kids.

Many wineries are beautiful buildings with sizable art installations but the art is typically outdoors providing ample opportunities for goofy kid-art-posing.

Although you may not like to think of it when you raise a glass of your favorite wine, viticulture is a science. Most winery tours do not include the laboratory which is a pity because this one was a real crowd-pleaser.

If you bring your kids to enough wineries, they may, at the grand old age of 14, be ready to give a little speech on why old vines are better than young ones.

    We take our kids to wineries all the time. Some are more kid-friendly than others, but it is always an interesting experience. My favourite was when our 10 year olds listened intently to the ramblings of an eccentric wine maker in a run-down winery in Tarpon Spring, FLA.
