Jennifer O'neill from Cellars Wine gives some great suggestions, "You don’t have to live in Wine Country to glamp it up with a nice bottle of your favorite vino. Whereas some people stock up on hydrating tablets and perhaps even a few cold beers, wine lovers will understand the appeal of bringing wine to a camping trip. Whether you’re spending a relaxing weekend in a cabin, want to hit the Appalachian Trails for a day hike, or simply want to turn a normal night in a tent into an ultra-relaxing one, we’ve got you covered.
What will you be pairing your wine with?
Consider the menu for the trip. If you and your family or friends know you’re going to go for a full-on cookout, then you’ll likely want to accompany the food with a different wine than if you’re just packing hotdogs and s’mores. The normal rules still apply, and juicy red meat like steaks will pair great with a red wine, but a lighter wine that has under 14.5% alcohol will likely hold better against any heat if you’re camping during the summer.
STAY SAFE AND ENJOY THE PAIRINGS
Enjoying wine while camping is a great way to enhance your senses in a way that also enhances the taste of the wine you’ve chosen to bring with you. Enjoy the great outdoors and allow the trip to open your eyes, nose, tongue and even ears to new experiences that can add to the food and wine pairings you’ll be enjoying."

A Riesling is great for summer camping, as well as whites that don’t need to be cold to be tasty such as a Chablis, Pinot Gris or Chenin Blanc. If you’re heading to the mountains during the winter, a Pinot Noir or Chianti is great for colder weather outings.
