    2013-10-02

    Few things are as relaxing as sipping on a delicious glass of wine in a gorgeous environment. Luckily this experience is available for many travelers who don't mind visiting some of the vineyards and wineries around the country that are open to the public. Many of these properties boast luxurious accommodations, informational tours and wine tastings that are perfect for anything from honeymoon travel to weekend getaways.

    Recently, TripAdvisor took a look at some of the best wineries in the U.S. With almost one-third of travelers planning on visiting a vineyard during the upcoming months, it is a good time to search for the ideal destination. Here are three of the top choices that were recognized as great spots for first-time foodie travelers and wine connoisseurs alike:

    Pride Mountain Vineyards
    California is a hotbed of wineries and vineyards. With so many to choose from, it may be difficult to select just one, but Pride Mountain Vineyards certainly makes a case as one of the state's best. Set on 235 acres of land, this winery offers visitors a chance to check out stunning views of Mount St. Helena and the surrounding vineyards as you tour a world-class facility. One of the most unique parts of Pride Mountain is its caves, which were manually dug between 1999 and 2001 and provide 23,000 square feet of space dedicated to aging wines to perfection.

    Sannino Bella Vita Vineyard
    Located in Peconic, N.Y., on the North Fork of Long Island, Sannino Bella Vita Vineyard celebrates wine in a casual and rustic environment. All tastings take place in a restored barn that was originally constructed in the early 1900s, but prior to that, guests can go on a tour that will show them the entire process of making the rich wines. Part of the fun of this tour is learning about the special process used for making wines on Long Island while also gleaning details about the intricacies of winemaking.

    Wollersheim Winery
    It may seem strange to consider visiting a winery in Wisconsin, but the state known for its cheesemaking can also produce its fair share of high-quality wine. Wollersheim Winery was founded more than 150 years ago and is found about 30 miles northwest of Madison, Wis. Visitors can enjoy a unique experience as they learn about the special grapes and processes needed to make wine in this colder environment.
