When you think of "Wine Country" you usually associate quickly to Tuscany, or the south of France, even Northern California for a taste a little closer to home. But did you know that Raleigh itself has it's own selection of locally grown and produced wine? Probably not a very common fact, which is why the industry of wine tours and tastings has been steadily growing in the area for the past couple years.
More and more people are learning about the growing selections of wines growing right in our perspective back yards and taking advantage of the local industry for more affordable and locally produced wines. And whether your group is set to go for a full vineyard tour, or a group wine tasting for a special event, having transportation set for all the members of your party is not just vital, but also a wise decision.
As any wine tour, and especially tasting, will involve the sampling of many wines (admittedly, probably the largest drawing feature for such an event) in drinking such small sizes, repeatedly throughout the day, one usually doesn't realize exactly how much they have had to drink until it is too late. Even the most responsible of us who are in charge of driving can accidentally go over the limit before they even realize it.
Having a safe, responsible driver pre-planned for your group, like the ones we provide with our shuttle bus service, ensures that every member of your party can partake in the tour and tastings events without having to count their drinks, or the time since the last one, and just enjoy themselves on the day's events.
Planning a wine tour or tasting trip with us, allows you the satisfaction in knowing that your entire group is accounted for, and that you have the capability to do virtually whatever you would like in terms of alcohol, and know that you have a responsible, expedient route there and back again. And also the room to transport anything you may buy while you are there, as you are sure to come across a brand or five of different wines you like, so ensuring that you have the necessary room to transport them safely back home with you is an added benefit.
The wine industry is booming, and quickly becoming one of the fastest growing alcohol markets in the U.S. today, so going on a tour to learn the ins and outs of the industry, and see how locally grown and produced wines are brought from our soil to the dinner table is a continually growing industry as well. Not to mention it being a break from the normal plans that would usually come to ones mind when thinking of a group event.
So if you think that a wine tour would be a great trip for you and a group of friends, be sure that we are your second call, to provide you with an all encompassing, safe and luxurious travel method for you and those close to you.
