Part of the fun of family travel is finding that unexpected place that both parents and kids can enjoy together. When planning a family getaway, I’m sure a winery isn’t top of mind, but maybe it should be. Just because your offspring aren’t of legal drinking age yet, doesn’t mean you have to put off trips to wine country. At Val du Charron it’s quite the opposite. The wine and lifestyle estate is a winery that all generations can enjoy, no matter how pint-sized or matured.
