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.

I have learned so much since becoming a wine guide two years ago. I have tried (and loved) varietals that I had never even heard of before. I love sharing my love and knowledge of wine with friends and family. The best part is that I can do it on my own time. I’m a busy mom, but being a wine guide fits right in with my crazy life.

I absolutely have never had a more FUN “job”! Going to “work” is going to a party and everyone is there to have a great time and drink some fantastic wine! Getting paid is a bonus! Using my Traveling Vineyard “extra income” I paid off my brand new car in 11 months!

It’s officially been 4 years since I started this journey. The plan was for this to be my source of income until my non-profit was stable to pay me. It hasn’t worked out that way but I keep trying and one of these days it will happen. I’m just grateful that the company allows me the ability to do this at my pace.

Cheers to me today as I celebrate 8 years being a Wine Guide! Saying Yes to join this business has been an incredible blessing. I was able to stay home to care for my 3 sons and my parents, all while teaching people about wine and food. My income, so many new friends, and the flexibility has made a huge difference to my family. I can’t wait to see where the future takes me!

I have loved every minute of my journey with TV! I've been a stay at home mom for 12 years, and I'm now able to pay for sports, gymnastics, clubs and fun outings for my kiddos and family! It's an AMAZING FEELING to do that! I'm also extremely fortunate to not only be friends with my wine mama and grandma, but they're the most wonderfully talented and inspiring women I could ever have asked to be working with! Julie Poretta and Cindy Hughes are always ready and willing to lend an ear and give awesome advice. Julie even provides a sounding board for me when I need it. I truly love Traveling Vineyard and cannot wait to see what this year holds for me!

This is the best direct sales business I have ever done. The fun I have at my events with my event guests around wine - which I love, has been fabulous. And the product is incredible. This company really makes it easy for us with an incredible product to share. Thanks TTV! The last 3 years has been amazing!

I started with Traveling Vineyard for fun and for something to do that is all my own. I am a mother of a 23 year old and a 16 year old - both boys. They have kept me busy and focused on them and my family for the last 23 years. Now, I have a few more years to work (I am hoping to retire in the next 4 years from my full time job) and am looking at Traveling Vineyard as my extra income/for fun job when I no longer have to hit the office every day. And I love, love, love the wine!!! It's been fun doing just a few shows a month - that is what works for me.

My life as a wine guide with Traveling Vineyard has changed so much. 4 years ago, I didn't think I would be successful, didn't think I would make it past a few months. After my second month being a guide, I knew that this was something that I would be able to stick with. I was in the top 5 for sales! Wow! That was such an accomplishment. In the last 4 years, I have gained some of my very best friends. I have met so many people that I now call my friends and they drink MY wine! I am able to be a stay at home mom and feel like my extra income allows me to be able to buy the extra things I want, like getting my nails painted or my hair colored. Because of the flexibility that I have as a wine guide, I get to schedule my tastings around my kids swimming lessons, my husbands days off, and my other hobby of playing volleyball. I have built a team that is amazing and having that team and being in a leadership role as made me be more passionate about my relationships with my friends, team, and family. Traveling Vineyard has been the part to my stay at home mom life that i was missing.

Traveling vineyard has been an amazing experience during my first year. In addition to being a fun way to meet new people and educate them about wine, it has also helped my family financially. I am very happy I decided to join tracking vineyard last year.

Today is my 1 Year Anniversary with Traveling Vineyard!! It's been a Fun Learning Experience for me! When I joined I knew absolutely nothing about Wine. I still learn so many things each day about Wine. It's not just about drinking and tasting the wine. There is so much more that goes into it. It has opened an entire new world for me!! I've met so many wonderful People and even gained some friendships!! I would definately recommend the #WineGuideLife to anyone looking to change up the norm to something different. Thank You for a Experience i've never knew about!

I had never heard of, or been to a tasting when I decided to join Traveling Vineyard. I knew nothing about the company but I love wine, and being in Southern California, I have access to lots of wineries to go tasting at. I thought TV had a great concept and I wanted to be a part of it!
I signed up one year ago even though my calendar was very full for the year with lots of travel plans, but I felt I needed to take that leap. So very happy I did!! Not only have I met some fabulous women in TV, in person and on FB, I have been able to share these amazing wines with many of my friends, and their friends, and have made new friendships along the way!
This year I will finally get to attend a Harvest and our regional and find out more about TV! I can't wait to really plug in this year and grow my business! I love the freedom to do as much or as little as I need, to fit my lifestyle. I look forward to having a team, more tastings, more friends and more financial security for my husband and I as we start planning for our retirement in the near future!

When I found Traveling Vineyard, I was not looking for work. I had a part-time job that I loved (and still have, and still love) working for a website company. I went to my first TV tasting TOTALLY clueless! (I was the friend of a guest and I brought my own bottle from the supermarket. I thought we were supposed to!) I really didn't even like wine and went on a whim.
Long story short, I ended up buying a case (okay 2 cases) and taking advantage of all the specials our Wine Guide offered. I booked an event a few months out... I was so EXCITED. The next day I decided this was something I could do. I'd never felt passionate enough about any other direct sales product before... ever! Party planning is so in my wheelhouse, so I started planning my launch!
Since that day, my life has been on Fast Forward! I still feel as excited about this company as I did that very first day. Every event is a new opportunity for me to meet amazing people and share crazy amazing wine. Every time I reach one of my goals in the company I feel energized to work toward the next. Traveling Vineyard truly allows me to work at my own (OCD, perfectionist, do-it-all-by-the-book) pace! It's the first job that I've ever felt has exactly matched my level of intensity... When I work hard, I get paid accordingly. I like that and it makes sense.
I could go on and on about the friendships I've made and the amazing people I've met; Wine Guides and hosts and guests. In just three years, my social circle has blossomed into a huge cloud of AWESOME! It's amazing how different things feel when you truly believe in a product and can get others excited too.
Overall, I'm just excited. Excited to go to every event. Excited to watch my family benefit from my financial rewards. Excited to meet new team members. Excited to get that Cancun trip. Thank you Traveling Vineyard for continuing to excite me!

As a mother of 4 with a full time job outside of the home, I love the flexibility and friendships I have gained as a wine guide! Being a wine guide allows me to set my schedule for fun adult interactions, sharing a product that I love, while earning additional income.
