In recent years, wine tasting tours have become popular not only among foodies and epicures, but even among couples and families looking for unique experiences.
Here at BBZ Limousine and Livery Service, we offer limo rentals in New Jersey for such purposes. If you are planning a wine tour, here are some helpful hints that you can use.
Hire a limo
Wine tours are about fun and immersing yourself with the culture and process involved in making wines. Along the way, you will consume wines, making you unfit for driving. Eliminate this hassle and boost safety by getting a limo to transport you back and forth between your home and the vineyard.
If you must bring the kids
Some vineyards allow people to come with their kids. However, note that there are little to no activities available for the young ones and you might have to deal with a bored child or children. Plan ahead and bring snacks and toys to tide your kids over while you sample the offerings of the different vineyards.
Prepare a box for your purchases
During your visit, it is highly likely that you will enjoy one or a few of the drinks that you have sampled. You might want to purchase one or more bottles. As such, it is a good idea to bring an empty box with you for your convenience.
However, remember that you are not pressured to make any purchase during your visit to the vineyard. If you do not find anything that piques your interest, you can leave without purchasing a bottle.
If you are planning to visit on a weekend, go out early. This will give you ample time to talk to the staff and ask questions. When the actual tour and winetasting starts, the staff may not have enough time to exclusively accommodate you. Do remember to be polite when talking to the staff members.
Be ready to try new stuff
While it is a good idea to try a specific type of wine that interests you, you might want to have an open mind and sample other types of wines that you may be unfamiliar with.
Don’t be afraid to ask questions
The staff of the vineyard will be more than willing to answer your questions. Show genuine interest and ask relevant questions.
Mind your wine consumption
Remember, the idea of your visit is to sample wines and learn more about these. This is not your regular trip to the bar. Save yourself from potential embarrassment and be aware of your wine consumption.
Keep the wine away from heat
Ask the chauffeur to store the wine you bought away from heat which can cook the wine.
