Get a Driver

Once you have an idea of how many people will be going, contact transportation companies for rates. The sooner you call the more likely you are to find the vehicle you prefer at a good price.

For groups of 8 or more, please make reservations in advance. Plan an hour or so between each stop to allow time to taste, shop, take pics. (Don't forget to tag the wineries social media pages in your post!)


Fork

Think Food

Many of the wineries carry snack items or have a full menu and there are also many restaurants along the trail! Be sure to check their hours before you set off, and make a reservation if you have a large party.


hotel room

Think Overnight

Make your reservations at a hotel, motel, vacation rental or bed and breakfast along the trail so you can stop for the night to rest up and refresh for another day of winery touring!


And, don't forget to stay hydrated!
