Join us for a North Carolina winery tour and celebrate a date night, bachelorette party, retirement, family, or a weekend away while sampling our favorite local beverages along the way. Our standard tour includes visits to three Asheville area vineyards. With safe and reliable transportation provided, you can sit back, relax and just have fun. 

Included:

  • Round trip transportation*
  • Three vineyard visits
  • Tastings at two of your three stops. Let’s just say that the pours at the first couple of locations are generous so we like to leave the third-stop beverage choice up to you.

FAQ

What is/isn't included?

Included in your winery tour:

  • Round trip transportation from your location (additional travel fee applies for locations more than 10 miles from downtown Asheville).
  • Tastings at two wineries.

Not included in the winery tour:

  • Food: you are welcome to bring your own lunch/snacks or we’re happy to provide a delicious box lunch, charcuterie box, or luxury picnic for an additional fee. Some wineries also have a food truck or restaurant on site depending on the season.
  • Driver/Guide Gratuity: gratuity is never obligatory but is appreciated. Another great way to show gratitude for your guide is to leave a review on TripAdvisor, Google, or Yelp and mention him/her by name.

Which wineries will I visit?

The short answer is that it depends! Factors that might influence the itinerary are special events at specific vineyards, seasonal closures, your preferences, and more. Our classic tours focus on wineries and craft beverages in Henderson County. Your tour typically includes three of the following (actual combination depends on the day/season/group size).

  • Burntshirt Vineyards
  • St Paul Winery
  • Marked Tree
  • Stone Ashe
  • Point Lookout

The extended, upgraded Tryon-area tour will include one stop from the list above plus the following:

  • Parker Binns
  • Mountain Brook

For private tours, let us know if you see a “must-visit” winery on the list and we’ll make sure to include it!

Where do we meet?

We’ll come to you! Winery Tours for private groups include round trip transportation from your accommodations. Note that locations more than 10 miles from downtown Asheville incur an additional travel fee at a rate of $25 per additional 10 miles.

Can you arrange a private tour for a small group?

Absolutely! Our private winery tours can be reserved for solo adventurers or groups as large as….well, the sky is nearly the limit. For parties of 1-5, the price is $870 total. This includes approximately 5hrs of private transportation and tastings at two of your three stops.

Use the “book now” button to request your ideal tour date instantly. An Asheville Wellness Tours concierge will be in touch to finalize details like where to pick you up, winery preferences, and any special requests.

How far in advance should I book?

Not to be dramatic, but we recommend booking as soon as possible, especially if your desired date is between May – October or falls on a Saturday. Those dates sell out several months in advance while Mon-Thurs and Sundays tend to be more open, especially if you’re visiting within a month or two. Please don’t let that deter you from reaching out though! We will always do what we can to accommodate and are happy to work with you.

What about food?

Making a day of it? Don’t go hungry!

Food trucks, small plates, charcuterie boards, and limited menus are often available on site. If you prefer to have the details taken care of in advance, let us handle lunch for you! 

Add on a box lunch for $20/person or have a lovely charcuterie box full of local goodies delivered before your pick-up time so you can enjoy it at your leisure along the route for $30/person. You can add these options on during your instant-booking process by clicking the Book Now button or Contact Us to customize your day!

What if we have non-drinkers in the group?

Have non-drinkers in the group? We offer reduced rates for “rider only” guests. See the “add-on” options during check out or give us a call and we’ll book it for you.

Note that all guests partaking in tastings must be 21+

What is the cancellation policy?

Cancellations more than 7 days in advance of your travel dates are refundable minus a $25/person administrative fee plus any fees charged by our local partners. Out of respect for your driver/guide’s time, cancellations from 7-0 days prior to travel are non-refundable.

How long is the tour?

Plan on approximately 5 hours door to door for the classic tour (longer if your location is more than 10 miles from downtown Asheville). The upgraded Tryon area tour takes a minimum of 6 hours. We don’t want you to feel rushed so let us know ASAP if you have dinner/evening plans and we can advise from there.
