Custom Tours

A Crush Above the Rest

For groups of six or more, any of the wine tours that we create can be completely customized. We have fabulous groups that tour with us every season and like to “mix it up” a little to keep things fresh and interesting. We have created some “winespired” journeys here to give you an idea of the different types of wine tours that we can create. These can be further customized for groups of two to four if you are looking for a more intimate or romantic wine tour. Whether it is a cooking class, getting your hands dirty in a vineyard, visiting a brewery or distillery, sipping on bubbles or pairing Ice Wine and chocolate….. anything is possible really.
