WHAT TO EXPECT
It is Texas, afterall. However, some tasting rooms are kept at cool temperatures throughout the year. We recommend wearing layers so you’re comfortable along the way.
Not all tasting experiences require guests to stand however, some are so we recommend wearing comfortable shoes, just in case.
Because we make appointments and arrangements in advance in order to receive the highest level of experience, we will adhere to a set schedule. Out of respect for the wineries and other guests, punctuality for your scheduled pickup time is paramount to keep us on track.
We want to ensure your time with us is a great memory, not a fuzzy one. We also want to show the utmost respect to our friends at the places we visit. If anyone in your group is asked to leave, is cut-off or is disrupting our other tour guests we will conclude your time with us and you’ll be responsible for finding a ride to your pickup destination.
We’re not a party bus
We want to ensure everyone in the tour group gets the best experience possible. Although we take having fun very seriously, we will not allow any open alcohol in our vehicles.
