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.

Traveling Vineyard started as a way for me to earn some side cash and fund my wine habit as a stay at home mom. I never anticipated that I would love this experience on such a personal level. It’s just a part time gig, but the friendship and fun that has come along with the financial gain is something that I do not take for granted.

I love being a wine guide. These past few months dealing with COVID-19 have been weird as both a healthcare worker and a human being. Having something else to focus on and be “normal” has been a saving grace for me. Wine truly brings people together, whether it’s my customers or fellow wine guides. I’m so grateful to have Traveling Vineyard in my life – it’s truly my other family!

I have been a wine guide for 2 years and it’s been the best decision! Not only have I been getting paid to share amazing wine, but I have met some pretty amazing people along the way that have become some of my best friends. I also have learned so much about myself and found a real fulfillment that my full time job didn’t have.

When I started into this venture 4 years ago, I thought, “cool, discounted wine”. My first year I only did a handful of tastings. It was fun, but I soon realized that my friends were not super supportive of a direct sales business. I then attended a regional meeting, and WHAM...I broke out of the friend circle, and started looking elsewhere for my hosts. 3 years later, a dozen or so wine babies, and my “wine discount” is starting to look like a nifty little business!
COVID has brought it’s challenges, but I believe this company has handled it very well! I wasn’t sure I would get back into doing live tastings, but I have already had a couple, and realize just how much I really missed it! Cheers to many more wine soaked years! ??

Even though this is a side hustle, I absolutely love being a wine guide! I love meeting new people, educating them at the wine events and being able to enjoy wine with them! Guests always enjoy listening to how I personally feel about a wine that I just tried because they can relate or share how they feel about it. I love my wine family and cheerleaders. The cheerleaders are so supportive in everything that wine guides do and my wine family is just as supportive when it comes to each other's business. This marks my 3rd year with Traveling Vineyard and I can't wait for the next!

I can’t believe it has been four years since I made the decision to become a Wine Guide. When I made the decision I was hesitant, but it didn’t take long to realize it was the best thing I ever did for myself. This was something for me! I love meeting all the host and guest along the way. Many of them have become great friends and I love it when they reach out to me with a wine question. If I had to do it all over again I would most certainly do it! Thanks Traveling Vineyard for this amazing opportunity!

I recently celebrated 4 years with Traveling Vineyard and it truly has been the best 4 years. 4 year ago, I never believed I would have gained so much from one single company. I've met some of my best friends who now have become family. I've learned that wine is more than just red or white. I've stepped outside my comfort zone more than I ever could have imagined and have grown as a person. I found leadership skills I never knew I had. All while earning a paycheck for me and my husband. Especially with a pandemic, Traveling Vineyard has provided me the resources to continue growing my business. Traveling Vineyard is truly a family and I'm beyond grateful Google introduced us.

It’s hard to think back six years ago when I was introduced to Traveling Vineyard. I had just become an empty nester and was looking for a hobby to fill my time. I can’t tell you how happy I am that I had friends who believed in me enough to get me out of my comfort zone and give the wine guide life a try. Not only did I find so much fulfillment and meet so many new friends that feel like family, I surprised myself with my success. The extra money and being able to feel financial relief was just a bonus! I can’t express my gratitude enough to Traveling Vineyard for bringing so much joy and friendship to my life!

Where to begin? I can't believe I have been living the wineguide life for a year!! I joined so I could earn some extra pocket $$$ and have gained so much more.

I now have a group of people that I call my wine family. The friendship and fun has been the biggest reward. I have been able to reconnect with people from high school that I hadn't seen in years! Which gives me an excuse to travel back home more often.

I also love that Traveling Vineyard is transparent, honest and always check off the "Is it good for the Wineguide" checkbox before they check off the good for the company check box!

Two years ago my wine mama, Danielle Dufour, was on a challenging mission to make me a wine guide. I knew I loved the wine, loved the events I held for Danielle but was apprehensive. This was the best decision ever!What a wonderful group of wine guides there are. Harvest was a game changer for me. I realized I could set goals and always have a huge support chain In this pandemic once again traveling vineyard showed you can adapt and change. Thank you to my wine mama and wine family for an awesome adventure
