Wherever it's possible, wineries prefer to keep their gardens inviting to visitors all year long, and they'll plant seasonal flora accordingly.
Tulips are fairly short-lived, so be sure to time your spring visit right. It's a good idea to call ahead to the winery you'll be visiting to see if tulips are in bloom.
Grapevines, with their brilliant fall colors, become gorgeous backdrops to wine country gardens.
Not all wineries have spectacular gardens, but those that do are found in a number of the nation's wine regions.
Many wine country gardens show off local flowers, and others have international showcases. Of course, some have both!
After they bloom in spring and before the September harvest, grapevines are at their fullest, so a summer trip may be in order.
At some wineries, you must make tour reservations to enjoy the gardens, and not all are open year-round.
Some of the finest wine country gardens are at inns, some of which offer free shuttle service to nearby wineries.
