You Can Go Hiking And Drink Wine With Llamas At This Vineyard

You Can Go Hiking And Drink Wine With Llamas At This Vineyard

These days the line between weekend activities and leaving your pet at home have truly been blurred - from participating in a spot of goat yoga to drinking tea at cat café, nothing is off limits.

But when it comes to a vineyard tour you would assume, 'surely no animals are allowed?' - yet, you would be wrong, in fact very, very wrong according to one American winery.

Divine Llama Vineyards is a family run vineyard and tasting room nestled amid the Yadkin Valley Wine Trail in North Carolina and is home to award-winning wines and llamas.

No, your eyes do not deceive you - "award-winning wines and llamas."

The vineyard based in East Bend, NC was established in 2007 by owners Michael and Patricia West, Leslie Messick and Paul Baumbach while their tasting room opened in May of 2009.

The vineyard is also home to a llama farm, Four Ladies & Me, and they've combined their nifty businesses to give wine-lovers a truly unique experience that allows you to walk these majestic creatures along idyllic Miller Creek AND taste their range of wines.

Sign me up now.

Those looking to get a little exercise in before participating in a wine tasting can join a two-mile llama trek, which finishes at the vineyard's wine tasting facility, where you can sample seven of Divine Llama's wines.

Not only that but you will receive a commemorative wine glass for your efforts as part of the $50 (£38) experience - not too shabby.

But if you aren't interested in trekking for two-miles, you can also just check out the llama farm, where you'll meet the animal that inspires many of the company's wines.

Also on offer at the vineyard is llama yoga, where you can find your inner llamaste before tasting the vineyard's delicious merlot - need we say anymore?
