The Points Guy: Wine Wednesday, Russian River Valley

Today on The Points Guy, we launched a new weekly series called Wine Wednesday (like on Twitter) that's kind of like an abridged Destination of the Week dedicated specifically to wine regions around the world and giving some hotel, restaurant and wine-tasting recommendations, not to mention a tip or two on how to get there using miles.

For the first post in the series, we decided to cover a destination that The Points Guy and I hit this summer, the Russian River Valley, when we were dashing around the world for the Catch The Points Guy campaign with Chase Sapphire Preferred. Not only did we get there using miles to fly into San Francisco, but we stayed at the Hyatt Vineyard Creek in Santa Rosa on points and used the card itself, which is a Visa Signature, to score free wine-tastings and other swag while we were there - so even on the most epicurean of trips, you can still find plenty of ways to earn and burn points as well as brandishing the benefits of your credit cards to their fullest.
