If you’re anything like me, marathon drinking got a lot harder after 25. So if you’re planning on doing an all-day wine tour it’s important that your pack and prepare for the long haul.
While the different locations typically provide free water, the shuttle does not. Staying hydrated will not only help you survive the day of the tour but also the day following it. (We hate wine hangovers!)
Sorry if you are anti carb but this was so helpful for us. I typically go for something easy to snack on like crackers or goldfish.
Fruits or Veggies
When I think of foods to keep me sober I don’t usually head for the fruit tray but this time I was really glad I brought fruit. I opted for strawberries and grapes. Fruit was a great snack to have because it was sweet and also not too heavy. Also it was a way of getting extra potassium and vitamin C that we otherwise wouldn’t have gotten.
The reason this was such a great pick was because it was portable protein.
The purpose of a wine tasting is to “taste” the wine. No server at a wine tasting has ever been accused of having a heavy pour. Unless you purchase a bottle there you aren’t likely to get a huge buzz. Most tour shuttles allow you to bring your own alcohol so bring your favorite bottle for the ride.
And in honor of Scandal Thursday an Olivia Pope Gif 🙂
