Why Bon Vivant Wine Tours?
Interesting small group tours.
Bon Vivant Wine Tours specializes in guided small group tours of interesting wineries and vineyards in Washington State, putting you in direct contact with the people involved in production. Our tours include more than just tasting rooms. Each excursion includes at least one guided tour of a winemaking facility or vineyard. We visit the famous large wineries of Washington and also specially selected wineries and vineyards that are relatively unknown or off the beaten track.
Your tour vehicle.
The vehicle for most Bon Vivant tours is a new luxury touring van or mini-coach. It has a low-step entry with an electric service door, stand-up center aisle, reclining leather seats, sound system, guide public address system, TV/DVD player, and a separate rear compartment for luggage and cases of wine purchased. This vehicle was selected to allow us to get to many interesting Washington wineries and country vineyards that are inaccessible for larger motor coaches or low-slung limousines. Its higher seating and large windows allow better viewing of the stunning scenery of Washington’s wine regions. It can carry a dozen passengers, but for your comfort we normally limit the number to 10 or fewer. A typical scheduled group tour has 4-7 passengers, more on popular weekends.
Experienced and knowledgeable guide.
Your guide is knowledgeable about local wine, grapes, terroir, food, history, and other visitor attractions. Our wine tours often work in passing views or stops of scenic, geological, historic, agricultural, or gastronomic interest. We can provide recommendations about local restaurants and lodging – and also recreation, entertainment, and cultural opportunities for visitors to Washington’s wine areas.
Convenience and safety.
You should always have a designated driver when doing a wine tasting tour. With Bon Vivant Wine Tours, we do your driving, allowing you to relax and to concentrate on enjoying your wine tour experience. We will pick you up and drop you off at your local hotel or at convenient, easily found meeting places with good parking.
