Wine Tours and RV Sites

Just wondering if anyone has done winery tours and tastings. Which ones and the best places to stay with the rv.

I think this would be a very broad subject. One way to get better responses may be to be more specific in what area of the country you are looking to explore, that is unless you are one of the lucky and can come and go with your own time schedule and want to see it all.
I live in southern NJ (camp too) and we have some great campgrounds and an expanding wine making region, the wine makers are actually pushing to have it designated its own region. I am by no means a wine expert, but I think there would be plenty for someone to like about our wineries.

Great thread. I think the OP is looking for locations of wineries that give tours/tastings and also let you boondock in their parking lot for the evening. Did I read that right?

I guess that was a broad question, but that was my point. Anywhere so as to find the experience across the country. And yes I can go when and where I want. Boondocking is fine and campgrounds are also a plus. I'm sure there would be a lot of input, but that is the idea, right.

Go to HarvestHosts.com , They are a network of vinyards/wineries that let you boondock on their property overnite. The cost to join is only $40 per year. They are located all over the country and also include some farms as well. Good deal !!

Seneca Lake NY has a few campgrounds in the area and a whole lot of wineries. Me, DH and some close friends last year went to about 8 different wineries in the area. We are making our plans for this summer.

Harvest Hosts is great. Many wineries, farms, growers, etc. are in the network. Free stay for a night (or two if you ask) and nice folks at every one of the places.

We are also Seneca Lake in NY fans. We stay at the Watkins Glen KOA. Beautiful sites, heated indoor pool and adults only hot tub, lots of kids activities...and I could go on and on about the vineyards and wineries. I should really move there and work for their tourism department. Be sure to visit 3 Brothers...they are my favorite!

Plenty of campgrounds and plenty of wineries in the Niagara region. We also have a slew around here too (the real south western Ontario, Essex County).

I think the better option would be, where do you want to go? Since winery=vineyards=countryside and campground=countryside we can conclude that if there's a winery around, there's a pretty good chance there's also a campground nearby.

So pick the wine region you want to visit (Niagara, Napa, NJ, etc...) first and then look for campgrounds like you normally would.

We went to the Traverse City, Michigan area and went to 21 wineries in that area. Fantastic.
