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.

It’s been 2 years already! Being a Wine Guide is a great way to make a little extra cash. People have fun at the tastings, I have fun at the tastings and I get to treat myself to something special every month!

Traveling Vineyard has been such a huge blessing over this last year. I have been able to help support my family financially, make my own schedule and meet some amazing people who I consider close friends now. With having 2 young children and being a stay at home mom, this has been one of the best discussions I could have made for myself and my family!

The best gig I ever came across! It’s provided extra income and of course delicious wine! Thank you TV!

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!

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!

Wow, 2 years of being a wine guide with Traveling Vineyard and I have loved every step of the journey! (peaks and valleys). I became a wine guide because I wanted a little extra cash in my pocket. BUT the best part of the journey has been the friendships. Not only have I made new friends (fellow wine guides and guests from tastings), but I have rekindled friendships from highschool and college. On top of that, I have learned so much about wine. I love that I don't have to be an expert to share good wine and knowledge with people. And through my journey, my bestie, who only used to drink very sweet wines, now will try all wines! So glad I found Traveling Vineyard!

Being a Wine Guide has been fun even with the challenges this past year.. It has given me a chance to stop out of my comfort zone by meeting new people and trying different kinds of wine. Everyone has been so helpful in answering any questions I have had especially my wine mama! I have learned so much I can't wait to see what this year brings!

Wow! Today marks 8 years with the Traveling Vineyard! I am so blessed to have found this amazing company 8 years ago and to be able to quit my cut-throat Corporate America 7 Years ago! I have learned so much over these past several years and have grown both personally and professionally! I used to hate getting up in front of others and presenting anything, heck I even took an F on a couple of presentations in college lol! I realized that when you are doing something you love that it's really quite easy to get up in front of others and share what you love! I started off knowing nothing about wine and have learned so much through the fantastic training and education that Traveling Vineyard provides us! They it easy to teach others and keep it simple without any of the snootiness that can sometimes come along with the wine business! I have also been blessed to add so many amazing team members to my team over the years and help them grow as well! It is truly rewarding. Now don't get me wrong, I've had my share of downs too like demoting or not achieving everything I had planned to in the Harvest year, but ultimately I continue to learn and grow from my failures and mistakes and that is what is most important! Thank you to everyone who continues to believe in me and give me the support I need to keep going and growing! Cheers to many more years!

My journey with Traveling Vineyard thus far has been incredible. I am thankful to Traveling Vineyard for opening up a world of opportunity for me and my family. The extra money helps me raise my 3 kids and gives me the ability to treat my kids to dinners out, days at the park, and so much more. It feels great being recognized for a job well done and TV makes me feel special. Marketing wine is fun and I have the flexibility I need to work my full time job, too. What I am most grateful for is the friendships I have made. Before I joined Traveling Vineyard I was a lonely, single mom. Now I have so many friends!!!! The friendships I’ve made are certainly the best!! I can’t wait to see what the next year brings!

When I joined Traveling Vineyard 1 year ago I was temporarily out of work, grieving the loss of my father and in the midst of Covid! I joined the company on a whim not knowing really even what I wanted to do with it. I knew I liked wine and I knew that our area did not have A Wine Guide. But I also knew I am a pretty quiet and shy person. I started an online event immediately and it was very well received! I booked my first events and hit all 3 fast starts! I was so excited!
Traveling Vineyard provided excellent training that allowed me to feel confident enough to be successful. I absolutely love sharing wine tastings and the amazing wine. The company makes me feel appreciated and the family like atmosphere of the Wine Guide life is so uplifting!
It has literally changed my life. Not only has it provided extra income for my family and I’m no longer living pay check to paycheck but it has helped me gain so much self confidence. The business helped me fill a major void I had in my life. I truly have found fulfillment and friendship when I needed it most.
I am currently a Four Star Leader and am so close to promoting to Team Leader. I am so grateful to have found Traveling Vineyard.
I look forward to the future with Traveling Vineyard and crushing my goals!

4 years ago, I made one of the best decisions of my professional life. I started my venture as a Traveling Vineyard wine guide. I was immediately impressed in the training I was given, and the tools I was provided to do “my job”. The support I have received during my years has been incredible too! The personal growth I have achieved while I have been earning an income is amazing! My confidence and self-worth has sky rocketed, all because of a $179 investment I made in myself. I cannot wait to see what the next several years have in store for me!

This company has been so amazing and there so much support when I need it. I’m so glad to join this company when they offer so much for us guides like awards and earning wine and ok let’s not forget the free shipping offer for customers too on 6 or more bottles. I have made a lot of new friends because of Traveling Vineyards as well. Such an amazing company and I’m blown away about what i found out is to come!!!! I am so excited. Thank you!

I have been wine guide 4 years now and have enjoyed it so much! It’s so nice to work for a company that stays fresh and real in leading the way for top notch wine and wine guides! With each year, the wine just gets better and better! Of course I’m my own best customer, as all wine guides should be!!! ?? ??
Thank you Traveling Vineyard for leading, teaching, caring and instilling passion that goes beyond the work.

??Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life.

What an amazing journey I'm on with Traveling Vineyard. What started out as the intention of finding a little hobby where I could sample and learn more about wine and get a discount has turned into so much more! Everyone from the CEO aka Chief Grape Stomper to the Wine Guides, the Cheerleaders (best support team ever), all of the Leaders and the ENTIRE TEAM at Wine Headquarters...they are all fully involved and participate at a very high level. You are never alone, in fact the friendships soon turn into family and this wine community is beyond incredible. The motto we live by at Traveling Vineyard, "Work Hard, Be Kind" is near and dear to my heart. How can you not feel good when that's what you live by and are surrounded by others who share in those feelings. The financial reward has been a glorious bonus! As a young retiree searching for fulfillment and more in life...not only have I found the fulfillment, but being able to help with some of our household expenses through sharing wine with others?!?! That's simply amazing! Best decision ever!
