FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
1. What is the booking process?
Bookings can be made online or over the phone. For private tour & transportation services, a $250-$500 deposit will be taken to hold the date. For individual tours, full fare is due at time of booking.
2. Can we bring food & alcohol?
Food and alcohol is permitted on any private charter service. We ask that you please be mindful of the mess certain foods can bring about. For example, Jell-O shots & cupcakes do not make for an easy clean up. We advise, for your comfort and safety, that you leave ice chests behind. Instead, bring any food & beverages you may have in bags, and simply transfer them to our built-in ice wells upon boarding.
3. Can we choose our own wineries and tasting room?
Yes, we pride ourselves on the ability to personalize your experience with us. For any private excursion, you have 100% control over your itinerary. For semi-private group tours, we will choose the best suited wineries for that particular group. We are always open to suggestions and will take special requests, although we cannot guarantee them.
4. Can we split payment?
Yes you can. We do ask for the deposit to be paid in full by one person.
5. What is your capacity?
For private tour & transportation services the capacity of our limousine-bus in 20, and our SUV is 6. For the comfort of everyone on our semi-private group tours, we cap our limousine at 12 and our SUV at 4.
6. What’s with the bow tie?
We’re glad you asked. For Michael, the bow tie represents independence from the masses.
“My vision has always been to do things differently. In any business, if your product is just like everyone else’s, then you are competing with everyone else. We truly offer a different product, and I want people to recognize that.”
– Michael Gahan
“To its devotees the bow tie suggests iconoclasm of an Old World sort, a fusty adherence to a contrarian point of view. The bow tie hints at intellectualism, real or feigned, and sometimes suggests technical acumen, perhaps because it is so hard to tie. Bow ties are worn by magicians, country doctors, lawyers and professors and by people hoping to look like the above. But perhaps most of all, wearing a bow tie is a way of broadcasting an aggressive lack of concern for what other people think.” — Warren St John, The New York Times
