How do the tasting fees work?
The prestigious Napa wineries that we have selected have tasting fees because they pour lots of great quality wines. The tasting fees are optional meaning you don’t have do taste wine at every location. The wine tastings offer great value whether it’s including winery tours, a dedicated person just for our group, possibly an exclusive varietal offer, or by offering up to 4 or 5 wine tastes at each winery. More importantly, The Wine Country Tour Shuttle has pre-negotiated that we get to taste wines in a private setting and not in the basic public area. Further, some wineries will waive the fee when you purchase a bottle of wine. Your tasting fee buys us this wonderful wine country experience and all you have to do usually is buy one bottle of wine of your choice to get that tasting fee waived. The wine tasting fees are handled uniquely at each stop. We encourage you to bring cash to pay for wine or the tasting fee, but credit cards can also be used.
