For all those who suffered through cans of beer they wished were wine on camping trips, beach days and picnics, no more! Canned wine is the new normal in the libations industry and with more options than ever, you can crack open a cold one with the group while still getting fruity notes from regions in Napa.
Shop from Napa-made wines, including bright and light-flavored Sauvignon Blanc Lake County Finley Road Vineyard or the Rosé of Carignan for a fruity flavor. Red drinkers can stock up on variety packs.
Enjoy your Chardonnay or Pinot Grigio in a can from Francis Coppola’s family winery in California. Grab a membership for discounted wines or look for a four-pack in your local wine and spirits location.
Bonny Doon Vineyard has all the fizzy pink, whites and reds you could need for your beach day. The red offers a Syrah-Grenache blend while the white is 100 percent Vermentino. Savvy drinkers can join the wine club and save, as these four-packs can be pricey.
Sip red wine, fireside or crack open a can of bubbly sparkling white wine with friends with Essentially Geared Wine Co. The wide variety includes not just red and bubbles, but also Chardonnay, Rosé and Sauvignon Blanc.
Bleisure — it’s a term we’re all familiar with these days. After all, millennials drive the rising trend, combining business and leisure trips regularly. Take a few days to decompress in a new destination after a hectic schedule of meetings and business.
For most of us, time in the car is “me time.” You can listen to that podcast you’re captivated by, blast that pop song and sing along at the top of your lungs or listen to the next chapter in that biography e-book you’re almost finished. A road trip only amplifies those opportunities. So, next time you’re traveling by road, take the wheel and take control. Opt for a rental car on your next vacation, rather than a rideshare, taxi or public transportation, and enjoy the open road on your own terms.
One of Georgia’s greatest cultural gifts might be coming to an end. The Redneck Games, which began in 1996, have seen a dip in attendance in recent years. A lack of sponsors means many of us might never know the joys of “bug zapping by spitball” unless an influx of travelers can help revive the event.
