Wine Tasting with Interesting Activities Donna Carat, a Winery Tourists Keep Coming Back

Donna Carat, with a history of grape growing over 30 years, is one of the four wineries in Waipu, Taichung, and it is near the observatory of High Speed Rail Station. To receive tourists, a vast vineyard and dragon fruit garden right behind the winery is open to the public so that tourists can take photos with the fruits in close distance and the fruit garden is right by the road without any fences. On the day we visited, the grassland was just trimmed and mown and the grape vines over head are thick that creates a green and beautiful view.

Asides from wine making, the owner, Liqing PENG often organizes various activities to invigorate Waipu District, such as picnics under the vines, fruit picking, wine tasting, wine cheese and onion wine tasting, etc. PENG has all kinds of ideas and is very versatile that she always arranges different tour programs and caters to tourists’ interests; hence, even if you come every year, you won’t experience repeated program, which means there are already many regular groups of tourists come year after year.

Waipu on the outskirt of the metropolitan area becomes a good getaway on weekend. The winery is busy on the weekdays that only guests who make a reservation are received. Weekend is a good opportunity to visit the winery. <br/>
