Happy wine trails across the country

Iowawine

     If you're traveling on vacation this summer, here are some wine attractions to check out:

     California: When I spent a year in the 1960s studying in Bologna, Italy, one of the great traditions I found was to take a big, glass jug to a wine shop and fill it with fruity lambrusco from a giant wood barrel. A liter of wine was 100 lire, the equivalent of 48 cents. For a starving student, this was heaven. Now some California wineries, including Preston of Dry Creek, are reviving that idea. Good reason to go visit.

          Iowa: If you pass through Iowa, be sure to check out the Iowa Wine Trail. Wineries like Eagles’ Landing. Wines like Penitentiary Red. There’s a winery 10 miles outside Dubuque where you can get married.

          Colorado: And if you’re in the Rocky Mountain State, you’ll be happy to know they’ve just repealed the law banning wine and liquor sales on Sunday.
