With millennials starting to grow up and join the workforce, wine has skyrocketed in popularity and is as common at parties as beer and diet coke. With the dawn of wine tourism, here are the best wine regions to visit in the US.

1. Healdsburg, California

Just in time for the millennial wine boom, this hipster district has just now started to overtake Napa valley. Located in Sonoma, one of the newest places to be here is SingleThread. According to Conde Nast Traveler, this is a 55-cover restaurant with rooms with an additional five acres of working farmland where grapes and vegetables are freshly picked. Only 65 miles north of San Francisco, many yuppies and entrepreneurs have also tried starting up their own businesses here with the shared idea of sharing with customers "how to live the life they themselves are trying to live".

2. Walla Walla, Washington

Once known for its prison, the east side of Washington is totally different from Seattle's coffee and rain. Beautiful orchards and dry weather contribute to making this area home of the country's best Bordeaux varieties. Thrillist suggests checking out the glass house at Cadaretta, with 360-degree views of the valley from the hilltop estate.

3. Charlottesville, Central Virginia

With over 300 wineries, Thomas Jefferson was said to have started the wine boom here, having owned land in the area and planting the first grapes in the region during his presidency.

4. Paso Robles, California

Just a three hour drive from Los Angeles or San Francisco, the beautiful foothills of Santa Lucia produce a lot of wine and at cheap prices. Wine sommeliers even say that, "You are more likely to get a great $20 bottle of Paso Robles cabernet than a great $20 bottle of Napa Valley cabernet."

5. Finger Lakes, New York

Even if this region opened up just a few years ago, it already boasts about 100 wineries, and big developers and large hordes of tourists have not discovered the place yet. Places to see here include Watkins Glen State Park's famous gorges and then Dr. Konstantin Frank Vinifera Wine Cellars, the pioneers in East Coast winemaking.
