Wine and romance go hand and hand. In the 12th century, Persian poet Omar Khayyam wrote, "A loaf of bread, a jug of wine, and thou." Walk the beautiful grounds of Estrella del Norte Vineyards through grapevines, past artist studios into the sculpture garden. In warm weather sit outside while sipping glass of the Estrella del Norte's Gold Metal Pinot Noir. Bring a crusty baguette, some cheese and olives and picnic as you sample the wines. The tasting room offers a six-wine tasting. Want something different? Opt for their "Holy Mole," a Zinfandel with a touch of almond, a bit of chocolate and a spark of red chile. Most romantic moment: a Colorado couple got engaged out by the romantic fountain in the vineyard. She said "Yes," and the happy couple toasted their engagement in a full tasting room to a round of applause.

- Best for Romantic Things to Do Because: Estrella del Norte offers wine tastings in a romantic country setting a short drive from downtown Santa Fe.
