Q & A
Q – How does the designated driver program work?

Q – How much does it cost?
A – It is only $40 per hour with a 4 hour minimum. (5 hour minimum on holiday weekends)

Q – Can you help us pick the wineries to go to?
A – Absolutely. We can help you custom plan your day going to wineries that meet your interests, including: what type of wines you like, entertainment, view, or size. We know the wineries and can offer you a special tour that meets your interests. We can also recommend microbreweries and other spirits that are produced locally.
Q – How many wineries can we go to?
A – That choice is up to you. We usually recommend three or four. We are totally flexible and if you really like a winery and are having fun you can stay longer.
Q – How many people can be in my group?
A – It depends what kind of car you have. There has to be a seat belt for each passenger.
Q – We have a small dog. Can we bring it with us?
A – Yes, there are several “pet friendly” wineries and we can suggest some of those to you, as we plan your day.
