Trust us, after running thousands of wine tours; we know first-hand how important it is to bring snacks and drinks for your wine tour. While we offer complimentary waters, we know that if you’re in the Limo Bus with friends and haven’t brought fun beverages for the onboard wet bar, you’ll probably be disappointed that you didn’t use it. A lot of our vehicles have cup holders, refrigeration, and snack storage for this reason! Besides, in-between traveling to wineries for tastings, the last thing you want to be is angry. (Especially after that second winery stop, a mini-picnic or snacks at the winery or on the vehicle makes a big difference.) So here are some of our favorite recommendations for snacks and drinks for wine tours.
Snacks & Drinks Ideas

SUNSHINE yerba mate is USDA organic, made with Fair Trade organic cane sugar and yerba mate, and has 160 mg of naturally occurring caffeine per bottle.
