Plenty of places around the country are great for wine.

Plenty of places around the country are great for wine.

Wine enthusiasts are typically steadfast regarding what they like and what they don't enjoy. This can be the type of wine, how they like it served and when they like to have it. Having something local may also be important to some. Luckily, there are wine hotspots throughout the country, giving people plenty of options on what types of wine to have and where they can get it. If this sounds like you, have your moving company help you relocate to one of the best areas for vineyards. There's plenty to choose from, so you might want to research some to see if it is a good fit.

Sonoma County, California
If there is one state that is a staple for wine, it is California. Napa Valley is the center of the American wine universe, but there are plenty of other great places in the Golden State. Sonom
a County is a good place to start, as the area has plenty of different wine options, according to Trip Advisor. Just about every wine type produced in the country is done here, which may make this a good location to consider. There are also a multitude of wine-tasting areas, so weekend getaways may not be far away.

Traverse City, Michigan
The Great Lakes Region also has plenty of wine options, despite the traditional climate of the area. There is one area of Michigan that fares a bit better than most when it comes to winemaking. Traverse City has become a popular spot for wine in recent years. The International Business Times noted that the area doesn't get the difficult winter conditions that much of the rest of the Wolverine State gets, due to its location near Lake Michigan. It was previously a staple for cherry production, so grapes fit in just as well. This can make it a great spot for top wines. Some of the best in the area are Pinot Blanc, Gewurztraminer and Riesling.

Walla Walla, Washington
There are also plenty of good spots for vineyards in the Pacific Northwest. One area in particular that could be great to consider a move, or even a weekend trip, is Walla Walla, Washington. The city has not only great wine options, but also notable scenery, as the Blue Mountains are in the distance. There are also plenty of good wine choices in the city, as some of its most notable choices are Merlot, Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon.

North Fork of Long Island, New York
New York may be one of the biggest producers of wine outside of California, and there are some good inland spots. However, Long Island has some that you may not know about. The North Fork of Long Island has been a home for wine for nearly the past half-century, according to the International Business Times. The area is not as busy as the Hamptons, and it may be a good spot to check out what the locals have to offer for drinks.

Palisade, Colorado
The Rocky Mountains are also the home of some great vineyards, and the area does have quite a history of winemaking. Palisade, Colorado, was the home of wineries nearly 100 years ago, but this was cut off when Prohibition occurred. The area has bounced back in the past several years, to the point where the vast majority of the state's wine comes from the city. There are many different types of wine created here, and whether you prefer grape wine, or ones from other fruits, you may get exactly what you are looking for.
