Frequently Asked Questions
1. How long is a typical wine or beer tour?
a. An Average tour is 6 hours, but we do offer tours of 4, 5 and even up to 8 hours. Many venues close at 5 or 6pm, we find that this length of time usually allows us to get in a full day of wine tasting without rushing. Depending on your experience at each place, we can usually hit 4-10 steps including a stop for lunch.
2. Is drinking alcoholic beverages allowed in the vehicle?
a. No. We do not allow the consumption of alcohol in our vehicles. We have found that drinking between stops can make for a bad experience. Keep in mind, you will be drinking at every stop. Just as in a bar, intoxicated customers may be denied service.
3. What should I bring with me on a tour?
a. Your ID. A camera, a phone & charger (we are not photographers, but we will take photos for you), our vehicles have USB ports for charging phones but we do not provide cables. Any snacks or lunch, we provide soda or water of your choice, just let us know what you like. If you plan on going to a brewery, bring an empty growler if you have one, most breweries will fill any growler no matter the logo on it. A jacket or sweatshirt is always a good idea.
4. Do we have to stick to the itinerary?
a. Not at all, whether we help you set a route or you have a list of stops you want to make, we can adjust that at any time.
5. Are there places to eat?
a. Yes, there are many. Many of the venues will also have snacks, crackers, cheeses etc. If you would like to stop at a specific place for lunch on your tour, please try to let us know ahead of time so we can plan your route around that.
