Default Wineries and Newell's?

Many folks on here like to go wine-tasting? I'm imagine rollin down the road with my gal and hitting some wineries anywhere between Arizona and Vermont. Thinking of the best route to take to further our fullfilment of great wines and cheeses. Any thoughts would be fantastic.

Gloria and I have visited many wineries all over the west coast. We've had the chance to visit some other wineries in the US. You asked for wineries from Arizona to Vermont so I have a few links for you below of some wineries we have enjoyed visiting. If you are ever near any of these do visit.


Here a few wonderful wineries in Arizona-

Absolutely, that's one of our fondest things to do. Don't have the list with me now but we've visited wineries in Moab, UT, Cottonwood, AZ, near Cabello, NM, Cortez, CO, and others. We've found and enjoyed some really nice wines, nothing like a wine & cheese happy hour sitting out by the coach enjoying the scenery.
One thing we plan to do in the spring is to join www.http://harvesthosts.com/
Sounds like a really neat thing, tour a winery and dry camp at their place.

I joined Harvest Hosts a few months ago, but have not been able to take advantage of what they offer yet. I am hoping to in the next few months. I like the concept.

As the saying goes: "Wine, Woman, and Song". I give thumbs up to that. And if you own a Newell and throw that into the equation you have: "Newell, Wine, Woman, and Song".

Clarke and Elaine care to share the details on what's to it to join?

Everyone thank you for all the great links to start things out. I have been reading on some the great links. Hugo you got me lined up with a good start. I figured Utah would be slim pickings but if I can go that route and then venture over the 70 into Colorado, I would need to line out some possibilities in the midwest.

We used to have fun stopping and touring wine tastings when traveling with friends and family together in our last Newell. Since being in Belize I've been drinking a little more beer and my wife goes after the tropical drinks. Spiked Coconut or Pineapple anyone?
