Have you ever wanted to plan a special day of wine tasting for a corporate or private event, but you didn’t know where to start? It can be overwhelming when you think about all the time and logistical planning that goes into creating these group experiences. From the most basic details: How are we going to get from point A to point B? To the details that matter most: How do I know what kind of wine experience my group is going to have? All these details matter. So, this begs the question…. What if there was a company made up of wine industry experts that could create a personalized all-inclusive experience for you and your cohorts? Well, prepare yourself to be awarded friend or boss of the year.

Barrel Wine Tours has been offering full service wine excursions since 2008. When you spend a day with Barrel Wine Tours, the only job you have is to sit back, relax, and enjoy your flight…. No pun intended. They are there to take care of every portion of the day. This includes all touring and tasting fees, luxury transportation, barrel samples, meet and greets with winemakers, a knowledgeable industry guide and depending on your tour, a multi-course wine paired meal.

So what sets Barrel Wine Tours apart? They aren’t a transportation company offering wine tours, rather Barrel Wine Tours is the wine industry offering wine excursions. We think that’s pretty genius. Everyone involved with Barrel Wine Tours is part of the Woodinville wine industry in other ways, for example, they may be a winemaker or a winery owner or work in a tasting room in town. This shared passion requirement is what really sets their experiences apart.

Let’s give you a small taste… maybe a 1.5oz pour? On the day of your experience, luxury coaches pick you and your guests up at the location of your choosing throughout the greater Puget Sound Area. You will be greeted by your highly knowledgeable tour guide that will take you through your entire day of experiences that have been completely pre-arranged by Barrel Wine Tours. Don’t forget, they take care of the details. Another note…. Barrel Wine Tour guides vet each winery partner for wine quality and experience before they are ever featured on a tour. As a result, you will taste only some of the highest quality Washington wines.

Most tours are arranged as corporate or private events specialized for 4-200 people. While Barrel Wine Tours offer both full day and half day tours, every tour is 100% customizable and not limited to a specific experience. Most popular is the half day Boutique Winery Tour. It includes luxury transportation with a professional driver, a wine guide to introduce you to the winemakers at three Woodinville Wineries, and all tasting fees. Each winery will pour 4-6 wines and you’ll be dropped off back to your home or office by dinner. On a full day tour, you can experience 4 winery stops and a three-course meal which is typically held at a local winery.

So, while your swirling the idea around, think about what a great alternative this will be to the stuffy conference center or dinner at a restaurant.

Leave the details to the industry experts and plan your next private or corporate outing. You and your guests are sure to discover rare wine treasures and take home with you many unique wine experiences. Tours can be booked any day of the week.
