Vast swaths of California’s beautiful countryside are dedicated to wine production, with boutique wineries and big names producing some of the world’s most famous varietals. After all, Napa Valley the wines are up there with Burgundy and Bordeaux in terms of weight.


Visits to idyllic vineyards are a nice part of the California experience, but they’re not without stressors behind the scenes: there’s Google mapping, checking hours, and, of course, driving or arranging transportation. Plus, there are literally thousands of California wineries and wineries to choose from – 3,600 per account. Even after narrowing it down to a certain area, you’re looking at dozens (if not hundreds) of potential properties.




There is an easier way. Guided wine tours take the legwork and logistics out of travel. All you have to do is admire the rolling landscape and sip delicious wines at each stop. Perhaps take a note or two, if you’re so inspired, and doze off as your driver brings you safely home.




The best wine tours in California can be for everyone, from beginners and late drinkers, to pinot lovers hoping to experience other great red wines, and couples looking to relive a trip to Provence. These are intimate affairs that favor luxury vehicles and small vans over 50-seat buses. The following California wine tours have earned accolades for their tailored itineraries and consistently friendly, informative, and sober guides and drivers.



Painted Ladies Wine Country Tour

Painted Ladies Tour Company is popular for its San Francisco city tours in a (very themed) vintage VW bus. The family-run business also spins its retro wheels through the legendary Sonoma Valley on small-group tours of up-and-coming wine producers. Past guests rave about the friendly guides, the great road trip vibe and the carefully curated lineup that includes an Italian winery for lunch. And don’t worry, you’ll get a photo op on the Golden Gate Bridge.



Toast tours

If your group includes beer and whiskey lovers, this company from Paso Robles is an excellent choice. Groups aboard Toast’s 12-person shuttles can visit distilleries, micro-breweries and even a cider house, as well as local wineries. (Tablas Creek Vineyard is a favorite for its organic Rhone-inspired wines and herd of adorable alpacas.) Other tours can combine wine country with two classic California locations: Hearst Castle and Pismo Beach.



End of the world tours

This local favorite did tours around San Francisco and Sonoma wine country. They visit boutique and commercial wineries, showcasing local flavors and generous pours. Take the nine-hour Great Wine Tour with up to 13 other people in a van that takes you to three different wineries, lunch in historic Sonoma Village, through scenic Sausalito, and make a photo stop at the Golden Gate Bridge. Or create your own bespoke tour, like a walk through the giant sequoias followed by wine tasting in the Sierra foothills.



Bin 415 Private Tours

Michel Lagau

something that fixes Tray 415 other than the fact that his guides are certified sommeliers, so they really, really know their business. The SF-based tour group organizes private, totally personalized wine trips (via Mercedes SUVs, no less) exploring the famous Sonoma and Napa varietals. The guides and winemakers themselves illustrate everything from grape harvesting to bottling. Lunch is a highlight, with stops past including French country cooking (at The girl and the fig in Sonoma) and Farm-to-Table New American (in Farm at Long Meadow Ranch in Saint Helena). For those looking to splurge, Bin 415 will attempt to snag the coveted French laundry Reservations.



Squire Livery Tours

While some wine tours embrace the flash factor – Segways! limo vans! party bus! — the three-person team of Squire Livery Tours keeps things sweet and simple with a two-car fleet and an accommodation style that’s nothing short of a delight. Run by knowledgeable Kent Higginbotham, a true Napa/Sonoma connoisseur who has lived in the Valley most of his life, Squire lets you be as active as you want – let them know what you’d like to try (you can, for example, mention that you like riesling or want to know more about cabernet sauvignon) or just leave everything to the guides. Whenever possible, they will host private tastings at times when the estate is closed to the public, which winemakers often do for VIPs and industry insiders. Past guests regularly speak of the expertise and genuine warmth of the Squire guides, and say they never feel rushed or overwhelmed.



Baja California Wine Tours

If you visit San Diego, consider replacing the craft breweries of North Park and Ocean Beach with the vineyards of the highlands of northwestern Mexico. With San Diego as a starting point, Baja California Wine Tours leads day trips or even overnight stays in the famous Guadalupe Valley, where the altitude, soil and Mediterranean-like climate grow everything from chardonnay to malbec. Dramatic mountain scenery is a given, and tours can include stops at a 19th-century horse ranch, the studio whose water tanks were used to film Titanic and The deep blue seaand laid-back Mexican beach towns like Ensenada and Rosarito for chilled ceviche and a horseback ride across the sands.



Food and Farm Tours

A day dedicated to wine, cheese and goats? Irresistible. Food and Farm Tours celebrates Northern California’s glorious foodie scene with tours of artisan food producers and organic farms in Marin and Sonoma counties. The most popular tour goes to Hog Island Oyster Farm, Cowgirl Creameryand Brickmaiden breadsbut bespoke tours can include a craving-worthy sparkling honey wine tasting at Heidrun Meadery or white and red certified organic at McEvoy Ranch.



Sustainable wine tours

Sustainable wine tours specializes in day trips to explore the Santa Ynez Valley, one of the five wine regions of the Santa Barbara Wine Country. Leading Tesla SUVs or Mercedes Sprinters, tour guides invite small parties to a few of the region’s family-friendly wineries for private tastings. While tasting bottles and charcuterie boards, guests learn about the winemaking process – from fruit picking to fermentation – from the estate owners and winemakers.



Visits to noble wines

Even if you consider yourself somewhat of a wine expert, try to figure out which of the hundreds of Napa and Sonoma (and hundreds) of vineyards to visit is daunting. Noble wines Austin Smith takes research out of the equation with its bespoke itineraries based on customer tastes, preferences and interests. Do you have a weakness for pet-nat? You want to visit the vineyard who put Napa on the map after dethroning noble French wines in a blind tasting contest? (Wine rookies who don’t know where to start are also in good hands.) Almost everyone who has hopped into the vineyard with Noble praises Smith for his courtesy, professionalism, and insane knowledge of all things wine. Californian. He doubles as a photographer, keeping a professional camera handy to help capture the day.

The company’s “Women in Wine Country” tour focuses on women-run wineries, with stops at Fantesca Estate and Winery, St. Clair Brown Winery and Brewery (owner Elaine St. Clair is the only female winemaker and commercial brewer in the United States), and the ultra-friendly Crocker & Star in St. Helena, where co-owner Pam Starr and winemaker Evyn Cameron produce superlative and enduring wines, including highly acclaimed Cabernet Francs and Sauvignon Blancs.



Green Dream Towers

If you’re looking for a more intimate wine experience, consider one of the Green Dream Towers‘ private visits. The company specializes in full-day and half-day Napa and Sonoma wine tours. Spend the day traveling through the stunning scenery in a luxury vehicle like a BMW convertible, limo bus, or executive coach with a private guide. They also run open tours which always feel special as Green Dream keeps the groups small and pays a lot of attention to the selection of wineries you will visit.

It’s on an oyster farm.

From central California to Maine, from the Gulf Coast to the Pacific Northwest, the oyster tour is becoming the new wine tour as consumers learn more about these salty shellfish and growers build brand loyalty – all in a peaceful waterside setting and against the backdrop of people’s hunger to learn more about their food.

And there’s still time to enjoy them in the temperate fall, before they usually end for the season.

“It’s kind of cool to eat something that’s just been taken out of the ocean and sit next to that seashore while you eat it,” said Gary Fleener, sustainability scientist and agricultural education at Hog Island Oysters in Marin County, where he conducts tours. .

Maine launched the Maine Oyster Trail, with more than 80 tours of farms, raw bars and retailers along the coast, plus an online trip planner and “passport” system to track oyster farm tours and raw sea bass.

The first-ever Maine Oyster Festival was held in July in Freeport, featuring chipping classes, tastings, food trucks, cooking demonstrations, live music and local craft beer.

Hama Hama Oyster Company on Washington State’s Olympic Peninsula hosts the annual Hama Hama Oyster Rama, which it describes as the world’s largest subtidal party, complete with “shuckathalon”, oysters, clams, a beer and wine garden and live music.

Even Florida and Alabama oyster farms have come out of their shell and started offering tours, which they see as a way to improve their image in an area where oysters have a reputation for being muddier, sweeter and less brackish than their northern counterparts.

Even tour operators have started offering itineraries that visit one or more oyster farms in one day, often by boat and with wine and beer.

“You have the boat ride, you have beautiful scenery, you get a little education and you have lunch,” said Peter Milholland, the gray-bearded captain and owner of Seacoast Tours in Maine, which takes guests on a modernized oyster lobster boat. farms on Casco Bay from July to October, with a meal of oysters and crab or lobster rolls.

The demand is strong. Oyster farm tours “just exploded” last year, Milholland said, as pandemic-weary travelers sought outdoor activities and producers had to find another way to sell their oysters while restaurants — and, in particular, raw bars — were still limiting capacity.

Hog Island tours are so popular, the VIP version of which costs up to $300 per person, that the company has started using its restaurant reservation system to manage reservations.

The Maine Oyster Trail has already garnered 20,000 website views and nearly 2,000 registered users, double the first-year goal.

“There is definitely an intrigue, a mystique around oyster farming. Many people have never seen an oyster farm,” said Afton Vigue, outreach and development specialist for the Maine Aquaculture Association.

Eighty percent of farm tours available at Island Creek Oysters in Duxbury, which cost between $100 and $150 per person, depending on the day, were booked on the first day of open bookings last year; this year’s tours began in May and continued until the end of that month.

“It’s incredibly popular,” said Skip Bennett, founder of Island Creek.

Island Creek Oyster ToursIsland Creek Oysters

One reason is that people have become more sophisticated about oysters, discerning subtle differences in taste and learning to order them by brand or region.

“We have this super dedicated fan base, the real oyster geeks of the world,” Fleener said. They then spread the word on social media, including oyster farm tours, he said.

Since the rebound from overfishing and disease before the millennium, and with the rise of oyster farming and the popularity of raw bars, oyster production in the United States has reached 28 million pounds per year, from worth more than a quarter of a billion dollars and growing at around 6% per year. year, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

“People just eat more of it and want to see what it’s about,” said Julie Qiu, oyster expert and founder of the website. In a half shell, which is all about oysters. “Oysters are simply intriguing. You either love them or hate them, but it always sparks a conversation.

Increasingly, this conversation intersects with a broader curiosity about the origins of what people eat.

“There’s been this greater desire to understand where our food comes from,” said Allyson Blake, retail and events manager at Glidden Point Oyster Farm in Edgecomb, Maine, which also offers tours. from May to October. As a particularly sustainable food, oysters offer “a way to talk to people about our stewardship of the environment that isn’t highbrow or pretentious.”

Martin Byrnes Jr. considers oyster farm tours a type of ecotourism. “People want an environmentally immersive experience,” said Byrnes, who runs tours at Peconic Pearls, one of several oyster farms in the Noank Aquaculture Cooperative in Peconic Bay on Long Island. “They learn how nature works instead of spending money on material things.”

Some just want to go to a raw bar and eat oysters and drink champagne, “and that’s fine,” said Beth Walton, a New Bedford native who raised oysters on Cape Cod and is now executive director of Oyster South, which represents oyster producers. in the South Atlantic and the Gulf of Mexico. “But a lot of people want to see the farms and know what the salinity is and who the farmer is.”

Southern producers are turning to farm tours to change people’s perceptions. “There’s always this preconception of, ‘Oh my God, hot water oysters? They must be big and muddy,” Walton said. But she said variety should be as much of a selling point for oysters as it is for wine and beer. “People are blown away by some of the southern oysters. Why not give them a chance?”

Scenes from the Maine Oyster Trail.Joseph Conroy III for the Maine Aquaculture Association

In fact, oyster farm tours are a lot like wine and beer tours – and that’s on purpose. “A lot of oyster tourism is holding hands with wine tourism,” Fleener said. Winegrowers “are the masters of the food tour”. The Maine Oyster Trail is modeled after the Maine Beer Trail, Vigue said.

Just like at a winery or microbrewery, inviting customers to an oyster farm – and tasting the oysters – is a good way to build a brand.

“The more they drink, the more they taste, they start to pick up on the subtle differences,” Vigue said. And the next time those visitors buy shellfish, Fleener said, “they’ll remember you.”

They will also better understand how difficult oysters are to raise, starting in hatcheries as “spat” or tiny seed-like larvae, then transferred to floating bags, cages or baskets – and why they are so expensive.

“People are amazed, who plow through a dozen oysters, how long it takes to grow them,” Blake said.

But the best reason to visit a farm is that the oysters “are grown in some of the most beautiful places you’ve ever seen,” Qiu said.

“You feel the tide and you hear the birds. It’s such an amazing experience. It’s a natural connection between the things you eat and the places you want to go.

A tour bus winds its way up an idyllic sunny hillside at Enoch’s Stomp Vineyard & Winery north of Marshall. Visitors revel in the picturesque rows of vines and look forward to tasting the wines. They listen carefully while their guide describes the brief history of the cellar.

When the bus parks at the top of the hill, passengers disembark and enter a spacious wine tasting room and a restaurant. They sit nonchalantly at a wooden table and look at the menu cards listing wines while soaking images and sounds.

A barista explains that each variety is made at the vineyard with a specific purpose and flavor in mind. Dry, sweet or between the two. Red, rosé, blush or white. The menu describes the specific blend of each and guests are invited to select three categories of wines.

Barista returns with bottles of wine and glasses and pour a small ounce of each variety. Before pouring, she names each wine and describes her flavor. The guests comment on the flavors. Some pours wines they don’t like in a bucket while others sip them with caution. Everyone finds something that they like.

Wine assessment helps customers plan the wines they want to buy before departure. The variety was definitely a highlight in the Enoch tasting room. All the members of the tourist group appreciated a sweet and light wine called Susan’s Secret, but all were pleasant to taste.

Meanwhile, the tourist guides Melanie and Tony Juays are quietly sitting at an extra table on the other side of the tasting room. Tony leads the tourist bus to two other places and Melanie has a lot of information to share on vineyards and viticulture. The two hand out snacks and small bottles of water as the tourists return to the van.






Tony Juays drives the bus to Lekker Wine Tours.




The Juays share their love for the richness and flavor of wine through their new tour company, Lekker Wine Tours. They want guests to be able to admire the beautiful countryside while discovering the 30 wineries in the Upper East Side region of Texas.

The name Lekker Wine Tours is a deliberate choice.

Lekker (pronounced le-kah) is a slang term in Afrikaans – the native language of South Africa – and a nod to the family’s homeland. The family emigrated from the cosmopolitan country at the southern tip of Africa in 2005.

The term “Lekker” offers a variety of meanings, explains his son and trading partner Garrett Juays.

“Its direct translation is ‘pleasing,’ but we’ll use it for everything — delicious, wholesome, amazing — but not pompous or glamorous,” says Garrett. “[It means] we’re going to have a great time; we’re going to have a good time; It will be very engaging but it is not suffocating.

The circuits combine the know-how of Juays in the field of hotel industry to their passion for wine and entrepreneurship.

“This company is the story of three best friends who happen to be the mother, the father and the son,” explains Garrett. “And the three of us are very enterprising. Many ideas have emerged and we are certainly not afraid to launch new ideas.

Some of the family businesses are payroll, human relations and accounting, which they did for Walker’s Mill Vineyard in Hallsville. As Mélanie became more familiar with the region’s wine business, she began to think about the possibility of arranging tours.

“It just seemed to be missing in Eastern Texas someone who would take people in the vineyards and meet the owners, would see their passion for what they were doing, [and] Listen to their stories about the birth of their vineyards, ”she says.

The current tour travels along the so-called Lantana region of the Lekker Wine Tour – Marshall, Jefferson, Gilmer, Naples, Pittsburg, Longview and Kilgore. The Juays have chosen names of native rustic plants from Texas for each of their four wine regions.

Visits to three other regions are also available. The Azalea region includes wineries in Athens, Trinidad and Palestine and the Petunia region in Canton, Lindale and Mineola. The Rose region includes Tyler and peripheral communities.

Walker’s Mill Vineyard in Hallsville is the second stage in the three -part travel of the Lantana day. The Art and Adriana Strahan-owned winery is immaculately appointed and features rows of Muscat grapes – the only varietal native to East Texas.

Muscadine wines have a dark red flavor that lends itself well to soft wines and dessert. A barista leads the tasting by explaining the name, mixture and flavor of each bottle. A favorite for this judgment is the blueberry wine – the only wine that is not made with muscat grapes.

After visiting Walker’s Mill and tasted wines, it is easy to understand why the Strahan dreamed of making Walker’s Mill The Jewel of a Cave that it is today.







Vin-appaié_britt's_800x600.jpeg

Britt Davis organizes dinner with wines in his restaurant.




The bus heads for Kilgore where Britt’s Wine and Dine is the third stop. The restaurant occupies the cafeteria of an old primary school and offers a spacious and open dining room with a bar at the bottom.

Wine tastings are associated with a three -course dinner during this visit – which can be organized on request. The kitchen and the wines are handmade by the owner Britt Davis. It is a self -proclaimed gourmet that develops its own wines from grapes cultivated in western Texas.

Davis presents each wine as it is served and explains its choice. The culmination of dinner is a thigh and a roasted butter thigh in a bourbon vanilla fishing frosting and accompanied by its dry pink wine Jess & Judy.







Wine-paired_dinner_800x600.jpeg

The wine-and-wine dinner at Britt’s Wine & Dine includes a quarter butter roast chicken cooked in a peach, vanilla and bourbon sauce.




Davis encourages customers to trust their own palaces when they taste wines.

“The flavor should really drive on your language with this wine,” he said.

The dessert is a rich pecan pie that he serves with a wine called Britt’s Paramour made with grapes by Napa Valley. It also presents a wine called Pinot Tage – a South African wine and a mixture of Pinot Noir.

Juays are not the only wine lovers in the region from South Africa.







Juays & Kronenberg_800x600

Melanie Juays and Altus Kronenberg at Enoch’s Stomp Vineyard & Winery near Marshall.




Former South African farmer Altus Koegelenberg moved his family to Texas in 2001 and opened Enoch’s Stomp with Texas restaurateur Jon Kral. They installed a cellar in a renovated barn and opened in 2009. The cellar experienced growth of 20 % per year.

Kiepersol south of Tyler is another winery founded by former South African farmer Pierre de Wet in 1998 and now operated by his daughters Marnelle and Velmay. Kiepersol is located along the Lekker’s Rose region which includes M6 Winery in Bullard and Briar Creek Vineyards in Whitehouse.

Melanie explains that the manufacture and tasting of wines are popular hobbies among South African nationals.

“It’s a South African thing, I tell you,” she said. “This is something to which we can easily climb.”

The Juays’ international experience has helped them identify the quality of Texas’ Upper East Side wineries and they are eager to publicize their tours.

Lekker offers a competition for a free visit for a party up to eight worth $ 1,000 until the end of 2022 and a drawing for a free visit of $ 95 each month. Participants can record an e-mail address on the Lekker website at the address www.lekkerwine.tours.

Visits can take place with as little as six travelers or up to 20. Visits generally take place on Saturdays, because most wine establishments open their tasting rooms to the public on weekends.

Most half-day visits include tasting in three wine establishments and cost $ 95 per person. A full day visits offer tastings in five wine establishments and cost $ 150 per person.

Lekker now offers beer and wine circuits which include a stop in a brewery and two wine establishments for $ 95.

All visits can be personalized depending on what the parties want to live. A tailor -made visit can allow customers to discover what is happening behind the scenes of a local vineyard or to experience a meal accompanied by wines – and almost any other request.

“We plan the tailor -made visit according to what the guests want,” explains Melanie.

Meet the Juays at the Pineywoods Wine Festival in Lindale on October 14 and 15, register for a visit or learn more www.lekkerwine.tours.

Me&u has already helped change the face of the Australian hospitality industry with its app and beacon-based contactless payment system. But now the company is on a mission to explore the future of the Australian hospitality scene.

In a report co-produced by YouGov and industry experts, me&u’s ‘Trends Ahead Tour’ was created with the aim of helping Australia’s much-loved venues transform into the new era and beyond.

One of the report’s first major findings is the effect of changing lightning speeds on the hospitality industry in response to the pandemic. Over 80% of Australian consumers surveyed are looking for smart technology to be part of their entertainment experience, as long as places remain people-centric and continue to value human interactions.

The report also revealed that more than half of Australians want to explore their favorite place in a virtual reality environment. According to the report, the Metaverse is on the verge of blending into the tangible world, with 60% of millennials agreeing that they would be interested in trying a new place in the Metaverse before visiting it in real life.

Another 60% said they would be interested in places using the metaverse to experience virtual reality activities such as wine tastings, hotel tours and other experiences.

And while the realm of metaverse, NFTs, cryptocurrency, and blockchain may seem futuristic and out of reach, brands around the world are already playing with this brand new technology embedded in Web3.

Virtual reality is now a reality

As one of the new pillars of Marriott Bonvoy’s portfolio, Moxy Hotels aims to bridge the gap between physical and digital with its new augmented reality experience that blurs the lines of technology.

Its in-person hotel guests are free to virtually explore Moxy’s properties using their own personalized avatar, equipped with challenges to complete and prizes to win.

The popular hospitality brand is also set to partner with ONE Esports to launch a Gamer’s Paradise, which will feature an all-new series of gaming talk shows.

In California, the Madonna Inn takes guests on a wonderland of the mind, allowing them to immerse themselves in the fantasy of their choice – from a jungle motif to a 1950s flashback or a dusty Wild West cabin – in their in person themed hotel room.

The augmented reality technology has a digital library of thousands of worlds and can be accessed by pressing the sides of the AR glasses provided at reception. Who needs room service in the hotel of the future?

A world first

How sites can extend technology and our experience into the limitless metaverse is already taking shape.

In May, M Social, a lifestyle brand under Millennium Hotels and Resorts, became the first hotel group in the world to establish a hotel in the Metaverse. Housed on the browser-based platform Decentraland, the digital experience is perched around the corner from Genesis Plaza, a much-loved hub of the 3D world. The central positioning allows their customers to “discover new experiences and connect with like-minded people”.

Currently, digital customers can enjoy virtual property that features stylish interiors inspired by their real-world establishments in Paris, New York, Singapore and Auckland. Upon arrival, guests will be greeted by an avatar assistant in the lobby before guiding them on a journey through hotel discovery. For those motivated enough to venture into the maze of Decentraland, actual hotel prizes are up for grabs.

While metaverse-led experiences may not yet be making their way into the Australian hospitality industry, me&u has shed some light on the future of our nation of food and drink lovers.
