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.

Wow! It is hard to believe that I have been a Wine Guide for 2 full years! It has been an amazing journey. I have learned so much about wine from my fellow Wine Guides. I’ve met interesting new friends while having fun sharing Traveling Vineyard wine at both in-person wine tastings and on-line wine events. I can’t wait to see what the coming year has to bring!

Who would have thought that when I joined just for a little extra time away from my boys and little extra money all those years ago, that this little side hustle would turn into so much more! More fun, more friends, more time with family, more money, and more wine! Cheers to another grape year working with friends that have become family. #morethanwine

Life Changing! Becoming a Wine Guide with Traveling Vineyard started out as a hobby of sorts. I wanted to continue learning more about wine, sipping new releases at a discount and the opportunity to taste wine with our Winemakers. What has resulted, is something more heart filling than I can even explain. Within 2 years I have a team of Wine Guides across the country who have become my sisters and brothers. This is the most welcoming and amazing group of like-minded people I have ever met. I was not looking for Friendships when I became a Wine Guide. I was not even really looking for Financial Rewards. I was really just looking for FUN. I have gained all 3 and have had the pleasure of bringing people together in a time when our world desperately needs more good. Absolutely one of the best decisions I have ever made. If you're reading this and you're considering this opportunity, just go for it. I can't stress enough what a non-risk this opportunity it is. We'll be here to cheer you on all the way!

Joining Traveling Vineyard 5 years ago was one of the best decisions I have made in my life. I can’t believe I have been able to earn a nice supplemental income, make so many new friends, and develop personally and professionally. All while sipping wine! Cheers to the next 5 years! (And more!)

Since joining Traveling Vineyard I've met so many new friends via Host, Guests and Wine Guides. I love the support and training TV provides. I've broadened my wine knowledge, and love what I'm tasting!
Thanks TV for all you do for US and well as our Hosts and Guests!

It’s been a wonderful 4 years with Traveling Vineyard. I’ve met so many new wines (yes wines) along with great hosts, , guests and other wine guides. Many in each category have become friends. One of the great things with TV is the flexibility; we’re never “fired” for a lull in our business (ghee thanks COVID). In fact TV does a wonderful job of helping us to stay on top of things! Thanks Tv for being there for me!! (Programs, training, WINE, and ppl who care!). Deb Gray

Wow! I can't believe it's been a full year since I joined Traveling Vineyard! Looking back on my first year as a wine guide I can honestly say I've gained more than I ever even imagined possible. That sentence in it's self is making me tear up as I write this! When Covid changed the world I was working as a physical therapist assistant in a 5 star skilled nursing facility. It's a very physical job and was already taking it's toll on my body so when Covid happened, I decided it was time to get out of that field and try something new. When I decided to become a wine guide I didn't really know what to expect. I knew I'd be going into people's home and conducting a fun wine tasting with the host and their guests and had expectations to financial success but I don't think I realized it's so much more than a job and being profitable. This has changed my life! I had to learn how to step out of my comfort zone. How to overcome struggles. How to fix mistakes I made. How to fill up my calendar when no one booked at an event. How to ask people to host. It's a lot of work when it's all new. It's difficult but I decided it would be worth all the time and effort I put into it by never giving up. I am blessed to be a part of a wonderful team. We meet on a regular basis via zoom calls. We help each other. Whatever struggles we are dealing with we all brainstorm and help one an another come up with solutions. We learn from each other. We challenge each other. We set goals together and accomplish them! I feel so blessed to be a part of a team who works together the way we do. I honestly know I've never had this kind of support in any previous job I've ever held. I've met some amazing people who have became some of my closest friends now. Hosts, guests and fellow wine guides. So many fun experiences such as 2021 Harvest trip, wine guide meet ups, holiday get togethers and weekly zooms. The night I joined I said to my up line I'd really love to earn the incentive trip- I'm really going to try! She said only 1 % earn it and I'd have to sell a lot of wine. I'm just about to earn it and I couldn't be more proud of myself! I've dedicated a lot of time and hard work into building my business in this first year and I can now look back and say Wow I really did it! I set my goals and never gave up no matter how hard it's been. And the fulfillment in my heart today is truly bitter sweet. Traveling Vineyard is an amazing company to work for. They want us all to be successful and reward us generously when we are. There are always challenges, fun ways to win wine, accessories, cool swag and the incentive trip. If you work hard and keep setting goals this company rewards you. The friendships alone are worth becoming a wine guide. You won't find a better group of people anywhere. We are family! I'm already setting new goals for 2023. Making goals and crushing them-- that's what we do!

My main motivation to join Traveling Vineyard was the knowledge that I would learn about wine and food pairings. Now 6 years later I could never have imagined everything else I've gotten from being a part of this company. I have made lifelong friends with team members, hosts, guests and others I've met along the way. I've helped others find a love for wine they didn't know they had, traveled and learned so much more than I ever thought. This side hustle has become such a fulfilling part of my life.

When I joined Traveling Vineyard I had no plans of sticking with it for very long. I wasn't into direct sales and I didn't see it as something I would be good at. Two years later and I am having a blast! I have made so many new friends, drank a lot of amazing wine and got paid to do it. What started as a way to pass time during a Global Pandemic has turned into something I truly look forward to every day. I can't thank my upline or the company enough for all the confidence I have gained as a result of taking this chance. Here's to more wine, fun, friends, financial reward and TRAVEL!! Cheers!

Today marks 2 years since I decided to join my Wine Guide family at Traveling Vineyard! I had been a loyal customer for almost 5 years in April of 2020, but when the pandemic hit and I lost my day job in events, there was no better time to trust my gut that Traveling Vineyard would deliver what I needed at that time - and it DID! Being a wine guide has given me additional income, but in a way that was flexible for me and my life (I'm a mom of two small kids and did eventually make my way back into the workforce), and so fun! I love introducing varietals that my friends and customers have never heard of, much less tried, and watching their minds be blown when they discover how intimately food and wine affect each other. It's incredible. I love this "job" - my only regret is that I didn't join sooner!

Like any new adventure, I definitely felt hesitant at first. But all of the rewards that this company offers, is beyond anything that I could have imagined. I’ve been a wine guide for 2 years, and in that timeframe, I received so much support, not only with my business, But also personally. I’ve met so many amazing people, that I can now call close friends.
The recognition that Traveling Vineyard gives wine guides is so assuring and definitely gives me a sense of belonging. I receive much more support and recognition from other wine guides and Traveling Vineyard than I do in my 9 to 5 job.
Traveling Vineyard has fulfilled so many “F’s” (friendship, fun, flexibility: especially as a single mom of 3, financial reward, and fulfillment) that I didn’t even know I was missing or needed! I love my side business!????
