There are vacations, and then there are vacations that change your life for the better. Sure, you can sit on a beach and sip a chilled beverage. Why not step outside of your comfort zone and do something you can tell your children and grandchildren about?
Get some adventure in your life by taking one of these trips that will make you a better person!
Ain’t no way around it: Man has to be able to navigate a wine list, but there’s no need to become a master of wine here, so put down that 54-piece aroma kit, my son. An above-average fluency in grape varietals, wine regions and food pairings will really put a man at ease at the dinner table, and the best way to achieve that is full immersion. Organize a wine tour (or get a package deal) of a region that interests you and be sure to include both major producers and smaller, family-run vineyards. Eat the local food. Taste the full portfolio of wines (the word terroir will start to make sense).
