Discover the wonders of US wineries on a motorcoach tour!
Here in the United States we are lucky enough to have some of the greatest and most prestigious wineries in the world. Contrary to popular belief such wineries are not only located on the West Coast. Indeed, you can find high-quality vineyards all over the country, which sounds like the perfect excuse for a wine-filled trip to us! Just keep reading to discover the 15 best wineries in the US that you won’t want to miss!
A Note on Visiting US Wineries
You have probably guessed by now that visiting wineries and vineyards means sampling their product. Indeed, you can expect to be offered a tasting flight of up to five wines at each vineyard, as well as being given the chance to buy full glasses of any wines you like and to purchase full bottles to take home with you.
Of course, because of this, driving yourself and your party to each winery isn’t the best idea, because it means at least one person cannot partake in the main activity being offered–wine drinking! With that in mind, one of the best ways to tour wine country is by renting a luxury motorcoach complete with a private driver. This way you won’t have to worry about staying under the legal limit to drive and will also reap the rewards of having a 5-star hotel on wheels available to you between winery stops. While not touring a winery, you can relax or sleep in the luxurious bedroom of your motor coach, grab a snack in the kitchen or just chill with your friends and share a bottle of your favorite wine.
A king among wineries, the Maysara Winery in Oregon is a must-visit spot. Not only is it set in the stunning and untamed beauty of the Pacific Northwest, but Maysara prides itself on its environmentally sustainable growing practices. Indeed, the care and attention they provide to the land and grapes cannot help but carry over into their high-quality products.
With their most popular wine Evolution being available across the US, as well as in Asia and Europe, you know that a visit to Sokol Blosser in Dayton will be well worth your time. Also, as Sokol Blosser focuses on sustainable practices and growing their own organic grapes, you can be sure that a visit to their vineyard will be supporting the environment too.
Last but certainly not least we have Hall St. Helena which is in the most famous wine-producing region in the US, Napa Valley. Not only will you find some of the most delicious wines here but plenty of breathtaking art including the 35-foot silver rabbit made by Lawrence Argent. This is a must-see for all wine lovers and art lovers alike.
While there are many wineries in California to explore, one that should not be missed is the Scribe Winery in Sonoma. Indeed, there are two crucial reasons why this vineyard should be included on your tour. The first is their singular approach to wine, where they focus on growing grapes in the most ecologically sound way possible. The second reason is their stunning Hacidenia style building surrounded by palm trees where you can pre-book private tasting tours during your trip.

So beautiful that it’s one of the premier wedding venues in Alabama, the Cat-n-Bird Winery is a little different from the others mentioned in this post. This is because it doesn’t have a vineyard of its own to grow grapes.

Set atop a hill, with rolling valleys of vines surrounding it, Wolf Mountain in Georgia is a must- visit winery location for anyone exploring the East Coast.
