A Guided Tasting of Several Wines

Let’s go through Several Steps of a Typical Wine Tour


STEP 1


Many wineries will start with an introduction to the property and a tour, which may include a bit of walking and will give you an overview of the winemaking facilities. Generally, a short overview of the history of the winery will also be included. Many winemakers use the opportunity of a visit to walk their guests through the entire process of winemaking. Hence, you get a better understanding of the overall process from grape to bottle.

Throughout the tour, feel free to ask questions and gain more knowledge from your guide. It is an excellent opportunity to learn more about wine and the winemaking process.

After a tour, there will be an opportunity to taste wines made by the winery. A tasting can happen in a designated tasting room, in the barrel hall, or often outside with a view of the natural surroundings when weather permits.

Many wineries find a unique way to present their wines and want you to relax and enjoy yourself. Small bites may accompany the wines, or there may be live music, or a chance to visit the vineyards. All wineries have the same aim in mind. They want you to enjoy yourself, have fun, taste the wines, and create a memorable experience that you will cherish.

Bottles of wine are often for purchase at the end of your visit. It can be well worth it to take home a great bottle of wine for dinner, a gift, a souvenir, and be able to recreate your visit again in the comfort of your own home. Some wineries may even have space where you can stay and enjoy another glass on the premise with your friends.


Remember, so much can vary depending on your desires as a visitor. How much of the production facility is open for public viewing, and what unique features your winery host would like to share will also shape your experience.

Wine provides more than a taste. It is often an expression of a region, a place, a family, and a season. At WineTourism.com, we hope you will enjoy discovering the nuances of every glass of wine. Please drink responsibly and take care to ensure a safe ride to and from your visit.

Frequently Asked Questions about Wineries

You can expect to visit a few areas in the wine production facility and taste wines made on site. The length of your visit will depend a lot on you and your desires. Often a simple tasting can turn into a more extended visit.

A winery visit will vary in length depending on the desired activities and how many wines or sights you take in. Generally, one to two hours will give you an excellent overview of the winery and a small tasting. Winery visits can involve grander tour options, an extensive wine flight, or additional activities such as a lunch or a master class.

There are certain seasons where wineries will be very busy due to other visitors or the harvest season. The seasonal workload can vary tour and tasting availability depending on the size of the winery and which hemisphere you are traveling in. Book at least one or two weeks in advance to be sure the winery can accommodate your party and for busy seasons book well in advance.

Two or three winery visits in one day max is best. More can cause rushed visits, and wines flavors will begin to all blur together. We hope you will enjoy yourself and relax during your winery visits instead of racing to the next appointment.

Most wineries will have a tasting room that will also sell bottles of wine to take home with you. Many may be able to take your order and then ship wines directly to your home, so you are not responsible for carrying them around when on vacation. Be sure to check with the winery if they can ship to you directly.

Many wineries are family-friendly establishments and encourage young parents to bring their children along for a day outside in the vineyards with a picnic or outdoor games.

Several wineries offer tours into underground cellars and through slippery surfaced production areas and do not recommend bringing along children for everyone’s safety.

Some wineries do allow pets in their outdoor tasting areas and gardens. Please check with your host ahead of time to see if animals are allowed.
