When I decided to become a Wine Guide, I was a brand new mom. Traveling Vineyard was an opportunity for me to meet new people, make some extra money, and learn more about wine. Two years later, I have found that it has been one of the best decisions I have ever made! I’ve become part of such a wonderful community and have made so many amazing friendships. I can’t wait to see what the next two years bring.

5 years! Wow! It sure has flown by, but it also feels like a lifetime. I really didn’t know what this journey would hold for me 5 years ago, but now I can see that it was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. Being a Wine Guide has added so much positive & value to my life, and I would not know what to do without my wine business.

I love being a wine guide! I have made so many new friends not only on my team but from tasting events I’ve hosted! I love sharing my love of wine with others and also learning new things about wine myself! Being a wine guide has opened so many new opportunities for me and I am forever grateful I said yes 3 years ago!

This is hands down the best side hustle you could have. Relationships are always the most important tome and I have made some amazing friendships with other wine guides and also at my tastings. It’s so much fun, you get to try so many different wines and you couldn’t ask for a better community than the people with Traveling Vineyard!

I just hit my one year anniversary and I could not be more excited to be a part of this fantastic team and company. I started in the midst of the pandemic and didn’t really have high intentions of growing my business into much more than a thing that I do here and there to make some extra money. Boy was I wrong. After a few events under my belt, my business just took off. I added a team member within the first few months, which I also had no plans of doing. I started booking more events, online and in-home. Next thing I knew I had 12 team members and promoted to Team Leader!
This company has provided me with the Flexibility of making my own schedule, since I am a busy single mom of three. It has allowed me to break out of my shell and become more comfortable speaking around other people and has allowed me to create great Friendships, with the hosts and guests that I meet, as well as the other wine guides! As a single mom of three, the company has also helped me with my Finances. Money to help cover daycare, dance class, and fun outings with my family! I am so happy to be a part of Traveling Vineyard and absolutely love the support and recognition that we get from our wine family!??

April 2020 had us a month into lockdown/quarantine... you know... and I was so looking for something to look forward to in life. I am a very social person. I attended a friend's wine tasting with one of our mutual friends who was a Team Leader with Traveling Vineyard. Allie and I were good friends and at the end I knew I wanted to host so that I could "hang out" with my friends. At the end of our tasting, Allie asked me...again!...to be a wine guide. I never had any interest in direct sales/ marketing, but I needed something to get excited about and I figured the worst that would happen is that I would drink the wine. Well, here I am, a year later, LOVING it! I love the wines, learning about wines, sharing wines and making new friends. I have met so many wonderful people from this experience. I have also been able to do home improvements we have wanted to do for years, and my kids can do their activities. I really wish I could make this my full time gig, and maybe one day I will. But for now, this mom of 2, wife of 1 ??, full-time high school counselor is having a blast and planning to stay on this adventure as long as I can. Thanks Traveling Vineyard and Allie Smith for hooking us up.

I am so excited to be a Traveling Vineyard Wine Guide! I began my journey at the beginning of the pandemic, which was probably not the best time to start a new venture, but I am so glad that I took the leap. I have been amazed at the loving, caring, and helpful spirit of other Traveling Vineyard Wine Guides, the Cheerleaders, and everyone involved with this company. It is a privilege to be a part of this team! I love meeting new people and sharing this wonderful wine. As I begin my second year as a Wine Guide, my goal is to hold more in-person tastings and to grow my business and my team. Get ready wine lovers. Here I come!

I've been a Wine Guide with Traveling Vineyard for over 9 years. It's truly one of the best decisions I've made for myself and my family. I joined the business just for fun and to pass the time while my husband was deployed to Afghanistan. I instantly feel in love with the people. I've been able to travel the world on the companies dime. I mean does it really get any better than that! I love working for myself at my own pace. The friendships I've made will last a lifetime and so won't all the wonderful memories. I'm truly blessed to be part of such an amazing company.

I joined the wine guide life because I love drinking wine with friends, and strangers who become friends! Since becoming a wine guide, I’ve learned new things, tried new wines, and met new people!

Five years ago, today, I joined an amazing company to partner with and started my wine journey.

This past year, Covid had put my in home wine tasting events to a halt and I had to focus on Online and Virtual events. Was this out of my comfort zone? Yes. But wIth your support, my business was able to continue. Thank you!!

Throughout these last five years, I have crushed goals, earned the title of Team Leader, and earned incentive trips to Los Cabos, Costa Rica, and the Dominican Republic. Was it easy? No. This journey of personal and professional development would not be possible without the support and the encouragement from my wine family and customers. I am beyond blessed!

“I choose to make the rest of my life, the best of my life.” ~L.H.

I want to raise my glass to all of you who have supported and continue to support my wine guide life!
Cheers to another year and knowing the the glass is not half empty...it’s refillable! ??

I have been a wine guide with Traveling Vineyard for 3 years now and I can't say enough great things about this company. First and foremost, the wine guides come first and I love that our Chief Grapestomper, Rick Libby, always has us on the forefront of his mind. He makes sure that a business decision would never impact us in a negative way and that is something that is truly admirable. Second, the wines are absolutely amazing! Third, it's so much fun to bring these amazing wines to friends and meet some new friends along the way. Fourth, having a little extra income is just the bonus. Lastly (although I could go on and on), being a part of this amazing wine family is such a blessing. I feel like I was welcomed with open arms and feel like I've always been here. As the company keeps growing and improving, I'm constantly empowered to keep going. I love this wine guide life!

I have been with Traveling Vineyard for three years and couldn't be happier I found this wonderful company. I have had a few life challenges arise and was able to jump right back into my business, even when there are updates to the business the trainings are amazing. I have met some great people through my wine gig and look forward to meeting more in the future. Traveling Vineyard checked all my boxes for a way to help bring in extra money for my family. Great wine, wonderful people and a business model that couldn't be beat is what brought me to Traveling Vineyard but is also why I won't be leaving either.
