Is it okay to visit a winery in large groups?

Yes. It is not uncommon to organize your own tour, rent a private tour bus, and customize the tour specifically for you and your guests. If you have a party of ten or more people, organizing your own tour may be the best route to go. This way, you’ll be sure to plan the event, visit the specific wineries you have in mind, and get the most enjoyment possible.

Please remember that while most wineries welcome tour buses, not all have the facilities to accommodate such a large number of people. Please remember to call all the wineries ahead of time, before you organize the event. This will give them time to prepare for your arrival.

In addition, it is important to respect each winery’s property and tasting room. Please follow any instructions outlined by a winery at the time you arrive. Whatever you do, don’t jump off the bus and race your friends in a 100-yard dash down some vines! If anything is in question, please ask the tasting room staff first.

When touring a winery, note that the wineries may end up pouring a lot of wine – and often may not end up selling much wine compared to the large number of people present. You might consider asking your guests to purchase at least one bottle each as thanks for a winery opening up their tasting room to your group.
