How To Start A Wine Business & Become a Wine Guide

A New Career, A New Life What is a Wine Guide?

Wine Guides, or Wine Consultants, connect with hosts of wine tasting events to arrange free, in-home wine tastings. Wine Guides help the hosts prepare for the event and then take the lead at the tasting itself, walking guests through a simple appreciation of some really great wines. At the end of the night, you log their order information and let them know when they can expect their wine to arrive.

The best part, though, is that when you sign on with Traveling Vineyard, you won’t just get a great home-based wine business that you can arrange to fit your unique circumstances—you get a network of support, consulting, training, and the opportunity to grow.

No prior expertise needed, no on-hand stock or monthly minimums. Just you, your needs, and a supportive community to back you up.

Who is the Ideal Wine Guide?

Absolutely anyone. We have women in their twenties and men in their forties. Stay-at-home parents and weekend moonlighters. We have retirees and hobbyists. People looking for career alternatives and people looking for a personal challenge. Most of them like wine, and very, very few of them start out as wine experts.

Why Start A Wine Business?
Wine Consulting: Getting Started is Easy

No Wine Expertise Needed

We have a fantastic training program that will teach you everything you need to know about enjoying wine and guiding other people to do the same – without all the hoity-toity.

Minimal Monthly Fees

Because you aren’t expected to keep your stock on hand, your only start-up cost is your Success Kit. It has everything you need for your first two events – 10 bottles of wine, supplies, paperwork, and self training materials. The only monthly fee required is to host your very own personal Wine Guide website at $15.95 per month. But we’re so sure you’ll love it that we’ll pay for your first three months!

As Much Support As You Need

Watching our Guides grow is our favorite thing about this business. From World HQ to your local mentor, we’re here to help you with your wine business at every step of the journey.

Every Year We Throw a Celebration In Your Honor

Our support extends beyond the day-to-day. Our annual Harvest is full of breakout training sessions in every aspect of the wine business plus all the fun and applause you deserve.
