SPECIAL NOTE RE: COVID-19 — PLEASE READ: Vine Ride is pleased to offer a modified wine tour experience that complies with current COVID-19 orders. You can expect:
- The tour vehicle to be thoroughly cleaned and sanitized before your tour.
- The chauffeur to wear a face mask, and to be free from any COVID-19 symptoms.
- Social distancing — you’ll be seated at least six feet away from other wine tour guests not from your group.
- Access to hand sanitizer and personal protective equipment (PPE) should you need it.
- To have a great time! We’re determined to bring a smile to your face, even if it’s hidden behind a mask…
MIXED GROUP & PRIVATE GROUP TOURS
If you have a smaller group (1-2 people), and you’re willing to share our tour vehicle with 1-2 people from another group (sitting six feet away), then a MIXED GROUP experience is ideal for you.
If you have a larger group (up to 8 people), or if you just want exclusive use of our vehicle regardless of group size, then consider our PRIVATE GROUP option instead. Details for both are below.
