How to Choose the Right Winery Tour

If you are looking for a winery tour to enjoy and relax with friends and family, there are different options to choose from. And it doesn’t matter if you are a novice or a connoisseur, there will be a tour to suit everybody.

First of all, you need to think about what you expect from the winery tour.

Maybe you are looking for an educational experience to learn more about wine types and what the process is like. Or you may be looking for an enjoyable holiday with your friends or a romantic getaway with your significant other. By having a good idea of your goals, you will be able to narrow down on the winery tour that can cater to your interests.

Also, it is best to research the region the winery is in so that you can select a region that you will love to explore. Wineries are located in stunning locations so you can look for a terrain that you will love and this will further improve your overall experience.    

The size of the group also matters when selecting a winery tour.

You need to think about the level of interaction you prefer. There are private tours where you can interact one on one with the professionals at the winery. Or maybe you want to meet other wine enthusiasts and you feel comfortable in large groups. It also depends on the people accompanying you on the winery tour. There is no wrong answer and this depends entirely on your preferences. For example, if you want to carry out a deeper conversation with the winemakers and ask questions about everything you are curious about, you can choose a smaller group. Not every winery is the same and they will each have their own unique character. They will have their own philosophy and approach to winemaking and you can look for wineries that produce wines that you are interested in trying. Or if you have tried some delicious wine already, you can choose the winery it came from so that you can learn more about it.

Some of the things you need to include

In your search when choosing wineries is their reputation in the industry and reviews written by those that have been on the tour before. Does the winery have awards and what are those accolades for? By choosing wineries with a good reputation and good reviews, you can make sure that you are choosing a quality establishment. Consider the tour itinerary as well. This will vary when it comes to different wineries. For example, some will have more focus on the wine tasting while others will also include guided tours of the cellar and vineyards. Think about the activities you and the participants love and choose a tour that provides engaging activities for everyone. You can also check whether the tour is accompanied by a knowledgeable guide that can bring their experience into the tour and create an enjoyable atmosphere.
