Can I drink alcohol in the Mercedes Sprinter?
Unfortunately our insurance will not allow it.
Can we bring our own lunch?
Yes! You are more than welcome to bring a lunch or picnic to one of the local wineries (based on winery restrictions). All of our tours include packaged snacks. We also offer individual Bistro Boxes or we can arrange boxed lunches from The Orchard House (contact us for pricing). Some wineries also offer snacks or small plates for sale.
Is there an off-season for wine tasting?
Absolutely not! Spring, summer, and fall are definitely the busiest times of the year. Although winter is slower, most of the wineries are still open for tastings.
What if I want to book a tour during the week?
Contact us and we can coordinate a customized tour for you. Many of the wineries are open Wednesday-Sunday although there a few that are open 7 days a week including Fujishin Family Cellars, Koenig Vineyards, Hat Ranch Winery, Ste. Chapelle Winery, and Sawtooth Estate Winery & Vineyard.
Is there a deposit?
Yes. We require a non-refundable deposit of $89 (depending on the package you choose) to secure your desired tour date. The deposit then covers one passenger’s fee the day of the tour. Once the deposit is received, your space is reserved. If you need to cancel your tour, we will do our best to reschedule for a later date and also keep your deposit on file.
Can I rent the Mercedes Sprinter for something other than the wine tour?
Definitely! The Mercedes-Benz Sprinter would be perfect for transportation to local events such as concerts, sporting events, corporate and company parties, dances, and other special events. Contact us for information here
