Why Bon Vivant Wine Tours?
Interesting small and large group tours.
Bon Vivant Wine Tours specializes in fully escorted group tours to tantalizing wineries and vineyards in Washington State, putting you in direct contact with the people involved in wine making. One of our wine educated tour guides leads each tour and is there to create a quality experience for you. In fact, the tour guide will not just drive from one winery to the next and drop you off; rather, they will escort you inside, introduce you to the winery staff, ensuring things are off to a good start. While driving from one location to the next, you can count on your tour guide to share their knowledge of the Washington wine industry.
For example, did you know that Washington is the second largest wine producing region in the USA? Or that the smaller wineries often share wine making facilities? While there certainly is competition, there is also a delightfully collegial attitude in the Washington wine making community. Woodinville, with nearly 125 wineries offering wine tasting, is the perfect place to start your exploration of what Washington Wine Country has to offer. We will introduce you to winemakers for whom wine making is a true passion, not just something they do. Certainly your Bon Vivant Wine Tour will start with the more famous wineries of Washington with high production levels. After lunch, they will then introduce you to specialty boutique wineries that we call hidden gems.
Experienced and knowledgeable Wine Tour Guides.
We are very proud of our guides. You will see in social media reviews, that customers enjoy them as well, often mentioning them by name. You will find your guide to be knowledgeable about local wine and winemaking, grapes, terroir, food, history, even other visitor attractions. They guide wine tours because they are passionate about Washington wine, and it shows in the way they share the best of what Washington wine country has to offer. You can count on your Bon Vivant Tour Guide to make your experience memorable, whether on a day trip to Woodinville Wine Country or Bainbridge Island Wineries, or on multi-day trips to Red Mountain and Walla Walla.
Your Tour Vehicle
Bon Vivant owns a fleet of tour vehicles, so that your vehicle can be sized appropriately for the group. Each one is roomy and very comfortable. For example, our luxury touring coaches, one of them pictured here, feature a low-step entry, a stand-up center aisle, reclining leather seats, sound system, TV/DVD player, and a separate rear compartment for luggage and any cases of wine you may purchase. The stunning scenery of Washington’s wine regions are easy to admire with the higher seating and large windows. The more remote Washington wineries and country vineyards, can be accessed, even those inaccessible for larger motor coaches or low-slung limousines. All Bon Vivant vehicles are USDOT registered, pass annual safety inspections, and receive service and maintenance on regular schedules.
Do-it-yourself wine tasting tours are not a good idea; for your own safety, you should always have a designated driver when enjoying a wine tasting tour. Know that the Washington State Patrol and local police jurisdictions completely agree, they take impaired driving very seriously. With Bon Vivant Wine Tours, we do your driving, picking you up and returning you to your original point of departure, allowing you to relax and to savor every bit of your wine tasting experience.
