HALLSVILLE — A new East Texas venture is offering wine lovers the chance to experience some of the region’s best wineries in one day — and attendees don’t even have to worry about driving.

Lekker Wine Tours, which officially opened a few weeks ago, offers guests a unique and memorable way to experience the East Texas wine country.

Founded by Walkers Mill Vineyard and Winery Manager Melanie Juays, her husband Tony Juays and their son Gareth Juays, the family business is the first of its kind in East Texas offering half-day, full-day tours complete and curated East Texas ’25 wineries.

The family are originally from Cape Town, South Africa, where they have regularly organized wine tours in the Western Cape wine regions. The company’s name, “Lekker,” is a South African slang word that can be used as a universal adjective for any good situation, Juays said. The word encompasses the feeling of contentment, happiness, satisfaction, pleasure and enjoyment that the Juays want their customers to feel on every Lekker Wine Tour.

Divided into four East Texas regions, the company offers full-day tours with five winery stops for $150 per person or half-day tours with three winery stops for $95 per person , with a minimum of six guests per tour. Guests can sit back and enjoy the ride from winery to winery in a chartered bus.

Lekker Wine Tours was created to give locals and visitors the opportunity to tour East Texas vineyards and wineries with an expert guide, Juays said. The company specializes in knowing the best places to go, the best routes to take and the best places to see to make the most of the day.

Lekker Wine Tours offers organized and standard tours. Standard tours are designed to give visitors a taste of the best the region has to offer, while organized tours are customized to visitors’ specific desires.

“We understand that it can be difficult to taste wines at different wineries and always have a designated driver,” said Gareth Juays. “Lekker Wine Tours solves this problem by providing transportation so you can spend a day tasting wines with friends without having to worry about driving.”

To celebrate their launch, Lekker Wine Tours is offering the grand prize of an East Texas wine tour for eight guests at the end of December 2022. In the lead up to the grand prize, they will also be offering a tour for a single person every month.

Lekker Wine Tours also offers a shuttle that begins at noon on Saturdays and repeats every hour, between Enoch’s Stomp Vineyard and Winery in Harleton and Enoch’s Wine and Coffee House in Jefferson and back. The hop-on hop-off shuttle has a limited number of seats.

New company is first to offer East Texas wine tours

LONGVIEW, TEXAS, USA, May 31, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — Lekker Wine Tours is pleased to introduce you to a unique way to experience the East Texas wine country. The new winery tour company, the first of its kind in East Texas, offers half-day, full-day, and curated tours of the region’s top wineries.

Lekker Wine Tours is a new family business owned by Gareth Juays and his parents, Melanie and Tony Juays. The family has a long history of tourism in Cape Town, South Africa, where they regularly organized wine tours to the world famous wine regions of the Western Cape for guests of their family guest house. Lekker is a South African slang word that can be used as an umbrella adjective for any good situation. This word encompasses the feeling of contentment, happiness, satisfaction, delight and pleasure that the founders want their customers to feel during a Lekker Wine Tour.

The company offers a variety of packages ranging from half-day tours to multi-day tour packages, all designed to give visitors a complete and enjoyable experience of the East Texas wine country. Whichever package is chosen, visitors are guaranteed to have “lekker time”.

The East Texas wine country is a beautiful and growing region, with a growing number of vineyards and wineries calling it home. The region is also home to the Piney Woods Wine Trail, a collection of over 20 wineries across East Texas. Lekker Wine Tours was created to give locals and visitors the opportunity to tour the vineyards and wineries of East Texas with an expert guide. The company specializes in knowing the best places to visit, first class routes to take and the best places to see to make the most of the day.

Lekker Wine Tours offers organized and standard tours. Standard tours are designed to give visitors a taste of the region’s finest wines, while organized tours are customized to visitors’ specific desires.

“We understand that it can be difficult to taste wines at different wineries and always have a designated driver,” said Gareth Juays. “Lekker Wine Tours solves this problem by providing transportation so you can spend a day tasting wines with friends without having to worry about driving.”

A half-day tour is a great way to enjoy a relaxed afternoon while tasting various wines. These tours typically include three stops, where customers can enjoy a glass or two of their favorite vintage, or even discover new favorites. It’s the perfect way to get a taste of what the area has to offer without committing to a day trip. This tour is ideal for a birthday or party, family reunion, office team building or just a group of friends who like to get together. Whether a visitor is a seasoned wine connoisseur or just starting to explore the world of wine, a half-day tour is sure to please.

Full-day tour explores the East Texas wine country with visits to five different vineyards or wineries, including at least one production facility where visitors have the opportunity to learn about the winemaking process . At the last winery, guests can choose to enjoy a delicious dinner. This tour is the perfect way to explore all that East Texas has to offer.

That’s what Kara, a guest on a recent tour, said in her wine tour review: “This was the best wine bus tour I’ve ever done! The tour guides knew a variety of wines and gave great information about each of the wineries we visited. They were very friendly and professional. The service was amazing!”

To celebrate their launch, Lekker Wine Tours is offering a grand prize of an East Texas wine tour for eight guests at the end of December 2022. In preparation for the grand prize, they will also be offering a tour for a single person every month.

Temecula Cable Car Wine Tours adds FUV trips to its vehicle fleet https://perbaccocellars.com/temecula-cable-car-wine-tours-adds-fuv-trips-to-its-vehicle-fleet/ Tue, 24 May 2022 20:51:00 +0000 https://perbaccocellars.com/temecula-cable-car-wine-tours-adds-fuv-trips-to-its-vehicle-fleet/ TEMECULA, CA – Feel the wind in your hair, the sun on your skin, and drink in those rich earth tones of the Temecula Valley wine country while touring in a fun three-wheeled utility vehicle available from Temecula Cable Car Tours.

TEMECULA, CA – Feel the wind in your hair, the sun on your skin, and drink in those rich earth tones of the Temecula Valley wine country while touring in a fun three-wheeled utility vehicle available from Temecula Cable Car Tours.

It’s not a golf cart and it’s not a motorcycle either. The new Arcimoto FUV is an “ultra-efficient electric vehicle for moving people and things”. Now it will also move wine lovers through Temecula’s many wineries as part of a new partnership between the manufacturer and the local travel company.

Photo courtesy: Temecula Cable Car Wine Tours

Each year, more than 3 million visitors explore Southern California’s Temecula Valley wine region, according to Visit Temecula Valley. With a temperate climate, it is a year-round getaway and vacation destination located in southwestern Riverside County. With few rainy days, it’s also the perfect place to drive with windows, a roof, or open-air cruising, like with the FUV. But is it easy to drive? More a car than a motorcycle, it does not require a specific permit, according to the manufacturers.

A quick lesson will get you up to speed. There’s a power dash, the choice of moving forward or backward, and a scooter-style wheel that’ll live up to your expectations as you traverse the hills and straights of wine country.

During your tour, you can stop wherever you like or visit included tasting locations.

“You will have the choice (depending on availability and date selected) of an included olive oil tasting, a chocolate and petting zoo experience, or a cheese tasting along an itinerary guided by GPS.

Ultimately, you’ll return through Old Town Temecula, stop and shop for a few minutes before returning to your fun utility vehicle.

Finally, enjoy a complimentary wine tasting with lunch or charcuterie for two to complete your experience and an exclusive urban winery.

For Lynn Yeager, director of the Arcimoto experience, Temecula Cable Car Wine Toursnow owned by Eat Drink Scare Tours, was the perfect company to partner with.

“We can’t wait for visitors to the Temecula Valley to experience the same electric feeling (as in Oregon’s wine country’s Willamette Valley),” Yeager said.

Temecula President Jared Broach’s Eat Drink Scare Tours designed a special “safe, responsible and exciting visit” for the Arcimoto FUV two-seater user.

Each guest will take their vehicle for a few stops at local vineyards for olive oil and chocolate tastings. When FUV tourists reach their final destination, the tour ends “with an epic wine tasting,” he said.

According to Yeager, Arcimoto liked the idea of ​​the travel agency’s fully restored San Francisco Cable Car, as well as the company’s energy.

“We think the FUV will be a great new option for those who want a more, shall we say, dynamic driving experience,” Yeager said.

Temecula Valley CEO and President Scott Wilson agrees.

“We are thrilled to promote the wine region’s first all-electric tour,” he said. “If you thought exploring Temecula in a classic San Francisco cable car was awesome, wait until you try the FUV.”

Trolley tours will operate on a pre-determined route from Penticton to Naramata. So far there are 12 pick up points including Township 7 Vineyards, Da Silva VineYards and Maple Leaf Spirits.

“I am absolutely thrilled to be a pioneer in Okanagan tourism and truly creating a new generation of wine tours on the Naramata Bank,” said Savannah Swaisland, owner and operator of Grape Savvy Trolley Co..

“There has been overwhelming support from the Naramata Bench wine community as well as cider houses and breweries in the city. I think this is a really good post-COVID way to allow people to have more discretionary income when it comes to actually supporting the industry.

Swaisland has been in the wine business for nearly a decade, but felt the Okanagan Valley lacked affordable tour options.

“Grape Savvy Trolley Co. aims to be just that. An affordable way for people to be transported to Naramata’s most incredible vineyards, landscapes and views in the most convenient way possible,” she said. added.

Keeping with the theme of convenience, the new service will use an online web application integration system. The system will house all ticket sales and track carts.

“In the web app there is a live map feed when you buy your ticket so you can see where the carriages are and what the seating capacity is so no one is waiting,” Swaisland said. .

“One thing that was really important to me, because I was born and raised in Vancouver, where I acquired these carts, was keeping the nostalgic feel of these buses,” Swaisland said.

“They’ve had a makeover and rebranding, but really keeping the nostalgic feel of the wooden benches and everything. [the] brass.”

Grape Savvy Trolley Co. had a soft launch last weekend and Swaisland says the support has been overwhelming.

However, it was not all smooth sailing, as just before the soft launch, a suspicious fire damaged one of the carriages.

“We had a hell of a time setting them up and getting them working. There was a suspicious fire started on Friday evening which caused extensive damage to one of the buses – the community really came together to address this issue,” she added.

Public tours are expected to run on Saturdays and booking and more information is available on the Trolley Co. website.
