If your idea of "vacation mode" involves relaxing over a great bottle of wine (or two), why not book your next trip around one of the best wineries in the Midwest? It's not California or Oregon, but the Midwest region is home to some surprisingly excellent pours—whether you prefer sparkling rosé, pinot noir or chardonnay. As an added bonus, all of the vineyards on this list boast remarkable outdoor spaces so that guests can sip and swirl alfresco when the weather allows (some are even situated near hiking trails and beaches). Whether you're a wino in training or you know your gamay from your grenache, these Midwest wineries are ready to fill your glass.
