Tips from Sea Salt sommelier Jackie Eash:

1. Incorporate wine into just about any travel plans. There are wineries in all 50 states. Chances are there will be one close to you.

2. Plan ahead. Every winery is a bit different. If there is a specific winery you would like to visit, it is always best to schedule your tour & tasting ahead of time so you can assure your reservation is secure. Usually the website will have information on tour & tasting options. Allow at least two hours for a full tour & tasting.

3. Be mindful of tasting room etiquette. Remember, it is OK to use the dump bucket. Ask what the policies are for waving tasting room fees. Normally, if you purchase a bottle or two the fee will be waved.

4. Don't for get, you will need to figure out how to get your purchases home. There are two main options to achieve this. One is to place in checked baggage if you are flying. Look into appropriate baggage for this purpose. The other is to have the winery ship it to your home. If you are traveling internationally, be sure to run the numbers. It may make more sense to just enjoy the wine while you are on vacation.
