Driverseat Kitchener East wine tour expertsTop 5 Pro Tips for Wine Tours – what a great start to spring and summer planning! Driverseat Kitchener East spends a lot of time in Niagara’s wine country with our guests.

A winery tour is a great way to spend the day with friends or coworkers. Every trip we make, our clients rave about the experiences. As a result, we are booking more custom charters like this. Engaged couples are also turning to experiences instead of traditional gifts for their wedding parties. Memories last longer than almost any gift. As a result, we speak with more and more people every week about the nuances of organizing these great events.

1. Picking the wineries

  • Visit no more than 2 or 3 wineries a day. This lets you enjoy the experience and not have to rush when you find something really special.
  • Visit wineries early in the day if possible, you will beat the late-day tourists and larger crowds.
  • Research large and small wineries. Some offer cooking classes, traditional regional meals, or other activities paired with the tasting of their wines.

2. Dress for the occasion

  • Whites and light colors are great in summer, maybe not if you are planning on drinking red wine, visiting growing areas or the cellar.
  • Bring a sweater or jacket in case you tour the cellars. That’s where they age and store wine and it can be chilly.
  • If you love wearing high heels, some walking shoes as well. Sometimes a walk in the vineyard is part of the wine tour.
  • Fancy dress is great for a candlelit dinner or a night out. Something comfortable and casual (and stylish!) is a great choice. Remember you are visiting a very specialized farm.
  • Don’t wear too much perfume or cologne – it may alter your sense of smell and that of those around you. Smell is an important part of tasting wines.

3. Explore beyond your favorite wines Ready for the wine and brewery tour

  • Every winery has its own unique way of growing the grapes and recipes for producing wine. Trying something new may uncover a new fave.
  • Winery personnel love to explain the nuances of their product and you will learn something new.

4. Designate a driver who doesn’t join in the tastings

5. Take snacks and water with you

  • You could even have a picnic in a park between wineries.
  • Great for the end of the day and the ride home.
