What to do before a winery tour
Start with doing some homework about wineries in your state and try to plan a diverse journey that includes both new as well old wineries. Make sure to call wineries in advance to find out if they offer wine tasting as part of the tour or if whether the tour is limited to seeing around the facility. Choose a winery based on your palate, and do not forget to check each winery’s hours of operation before planning your day.
Most wineries are busy in the summer and fall months. If you want a more personal and enriching experience, make sure to hire a limo for your wine tour in the winters or the spring months to enjoy the unique flavors with a close circle of friends and family members. We arrange the best Long Island wine tours with professional and highly knowledgeable chauffeurs.
What do you do at a winery?
A winery tour is essentially getting a sneak peek at behind the scenes of how grapes get turned into wine. You get to visit the vineyards, where a winemaker or owner may walk you through the cultivation and harvesting process.
After this, you will visit the winery where you can learn about the various processes involved in winemaking. In the end, you will get to taste a variety of wines and buy your favorite ones at each winery.
Tips for a perfect wine tour
Wine tours are extremely fun as it involves lots of learning, visiting new places and people, and most importantly tasting a variety of wine collections. These are some tips to make your wine tour unforgettable:
- Carry along an empty box or a styrofoam wine carrier to carry all the wine bottles that you will end up buying at different wineries or breweries. Without a box, your bottles will keep rattling back and forth in the car and are highly prone to breaking.
- Make sure to rent a limo with a designated driver to enrich your experience. Tasting different wines can get you a little tipsy, having a designated driver can help you relish the tour without having to worry about driving back home. Touring around vineyards in a limo can offer a superior level of comfort, while you soak in the beauty of wine terraces.
- Try to visit the wineries earlier in the day, if you plan your tour on the weekends. One of the exhilarating aspects of these tours is getting to meet the owners and winemakers. They may not have the time to talk to you if you visit them during peak hours.
