Announces Its



Dear Reader,
Here it is... a long time in the making, we are formally introducing Wine Educational Tours

There has been a lot of thought, research, time, writing, editing and more thought invested in order to be able to offer our wine tour packages to you. Wine Educational Tours (WET) offers very unique, individually created wine tour packages specifically to fit your needs, desires and budget.  Each tour is designed with wine education in mind, so you will come back from your trip having more understanding, love and appreciation for wine and all the blood, sweat and tears that goes into making the perfect bottle for you to enjoy. 

We have three distinct tours and each one can be designed to include everything you would want for your wine vacation.  We can design a romantic quiet weekend for two or an upscale all-inclusive tour for you and another couple.  If it's a family vacation, we will design it so it will include other activities along with wine tasting to meet the needs for everyone (even if you are bringing your dog).  Our tours and philosophy are briefly described below.  To learn more about WET or to get more details on each of the tours please go to our website and go to the Specialty Tour section. 

Don't worry, drink happy!

Here we design an itinerary specifically to fit your budget, needs and desires for your wine vacation.  You will receive recommendations of wineries, lodging, restaurants, and other activities that you can see and do while there.  Then at your leisure you make the arrangements from our recommended itinerary.


We take your specs that you give us and we design an educational wine itinerary from the beginning to the end.  WE will make all the necessary reservations for you from the lodging to the wine tours to the spa treatment.  We use our inside connections to accommodate your every wish and desire.  Our goal is for your wine vacation to be just like you envision, but we do all the work designing it for you.  All you have to do is to get to the location and follow along the itinerary we give you, and have a fantastic time.


This tour is upscale and all-inclusive. You don't have to worry about a thing.  We will provide the lodging in a multi-million dollar home or boutique hotel, all the limousine transportation, meals and something new and different each day. Lori Lapides will be your private tour guide daily (which means never a dull moment and lots of surprises).  You will be meeting with different experts daily that will teach you about their specialties within the wine region.  This is an exclusive tour and the adventures that are in store for you are endless.  Some of the  excursions included are hot air ballooning, picnic lunches with the winery winemaker an/or owner and a leisure bicycle tour through the vineyards, to name just a few.  On this tour be prepared to be treated like royalty! Wine Educational Tours


Our philosophy is to help you to learn about the process of making wine from the vine to the bottle to the table.  We will customize the tour for you depending upon your exact interests, which region(s) you want to visit and how much time you have.  What you have at the end is a tour, perfectly designed for you, taking you from the
grapes to the glass.

Each tour has four components:
