Self-guided tour with a Grape trip-planner
Do you feel up for a self-drive wine tour?
Driving around yourself is another option of doing a wine tour. Let us plan the perfect day for you with the best wineries, and logical time-plan, and with audio that you can play on the way to the wine region that will give you the info you'll need to understand the region better.
You decide the region you want to visit (or we can suggest one depending on where you will be staying), you decide the number of wineries you want to visit (and if you have any particular request) and we'll make the bookings for you.
Here's how it works:
Our trip-planning costs 95 euro which you pay at the moment of the request.
You let us know the region you would like to visit, your preferences in terms of wineries (if you have any), what kind of lunch you would like.
That done, we'll set up your itinerary and book the wineries. We will present the itinerary to you and give you a brief description of each winery.
Winery fees (tastings and tours) will have to be paid directly at the wineries. If you opt to have lunch, of course, you pay for that directly at the restaurant on the day of.
Before your trip, you will receive the plan with the exact timing (that we'll know to be realistic according to location), and contacts, and we will provide you with the necessary driving information.
You will also receive our region commentary Mp3 that you can play the day of to get better acquainted with the region that you'll be visiting.
You will also receive the phone number of a Grape assistant, in case you need help during the day (call or whatsapp).
We recommend to visit 2, max 3 wineries in a day - simply to give yourself time to stop along the way, visit a village, take some photos and relax.
