U.S. Road Trip for Wine Lovers
After months and months of being cooped up, we wondered what the perfect road trip would be. And what could be better than a wine tour?
There are more than 7,000 wineries in the United States. Sure, California is home to nearly half of them, but 13 states are home to more than 100 wineries, and you'll actually find wineries in every state.
How exactly? We plotted out the ultimate road trip for wine lovers, with a winery stop in each continuous state.
Our map begins in Maine, but you can start really anywhere. Consider this your American wine bucket list, and try some of the loops or simply sample a few wineries near you. Cheers!
New England Leg
We begin our wine tour in Maine with stops in Massachusetts, Rhode Island and Connecticut over 390 miles and seven hours of driving. (You'll visit New York, Vermont and New Hampshire at the end of the journey!)
If you'd like to complete a New England loop, include Vermont and New Hampshire into your route.
This adds another 189 miles before completing the full loop at 761 miles and 13 hours of drive time — you can do this over a three-day weekend!

And, now, we get to California, where you could literally live here for years and not taste all of the wine that this West Coast state has to offer. From our Arizona stop to SoCal's Temecula Valley region to Paso Robles in the Central Coast up to the world-famous Napa Valley will take you almost 15 hours to drive 936 miles.
But if you want to just stay close to the central hubs of San Diego, Los Angeles or the San Francisco Bay Area, there are several day trips you can take to countless wineries in these three regions.
California – Temecula Valley
First up, we have Temecula Valley, Southern California's wine country. Grapes were first planted in the region in 1968, and it has since grown to nearly 50 wineries across 33,000 acres.
Needless to say, we couldn't choose just one winery to recommend, but you'll find most of the region's vineyards along I-15. The Temecula Valley convention and visitors bureau even has a wine map that highlights everywhere you can taste.
Visit Temecula Valley.
California – Paso Robles
Driving north (we recommend Highway 1 for the ultimate coastal drive), you'll find Paso Robles, another California wine region that first began in 1790. Again, we couldn't hone in on just one to suggest because the area is now home to more than 200 wineries across 40,000 acres.
You can taste more than 40 different varietals here, but we recommend going back to the area's roots with a flavorful Zinfandel (or five).
Visit Paso Robles.
California – Napa Valley
And, now, we've reached the mecca of American wines. There is no way we could pick one winery in Napa Valley or in neighboring Sonoma County, so we suggest you take a full weekend (or week) to explore the entire region.
The world-famous wine country has every type of wine you can imagine, along with vineyard tours, tasting rooms and Michelin-star restaurants.
Visit Napa Valley.
Pacific Northwest Leg
Next, we're going to pop inland to reach Nevada before continuing to the Pacific Northwest. This beautiful trek is 841 miles and about 14 hours of drive time.
Shorter options include simply enjoying the Willamette Valley, passing Mount Hood to Washington and back for a five-hour drive.

It's going to take a full-day's drive to get from Arkansas to the Chicago-area winery on our list, but then it's a piece of cake for this stretch dedicated to locals or travelers looking for wine near the Great Lakes. (If you are driving from Arkansas, though, we suggest a stop to visit one of the seven wineries in Hermann, Missouri.)
