From the end of the 20th century and into the 21st century the love of wines has become a major part of the lives of millions of people around the world; however, the problem many face is how and where to get the best in wines at a decent price. We would all love to head to wine producing country and take part in tastings, but this is not always possible and often leaves us in a wine tasting rut. The Traveling Vineyard is looking to change the way everybody samples and orders wine by making wine tastings a fun, affordable, and social event enjoyed in the home of a customer.
The idea for The Traveling Vineyard can be traced back to its founder Rick Libby in 2001, who used the skills he had developed in the wine industry and had the idea for a plastic container style social event selling model that would bring affordable wines directly into the homes of potential customers. The benefits for the wine party host include the chance to enjoy a party where the wine is provided for free and information on foods to compliment a wine are also made available; party hosts also get the chance to earn free bottles of wine and enjoy special offers designed exclusively for them.
For guests at The Traveling Vineyard tasting events the chance to enjoy a range of wines priced under $30 that cannot be found anywhere else in the U.S. is a major bonus. For those who choose to embark on a career, or second career as a Wine Guide the chance to be part of a team that enjoys huge rewards in both the financial and satisfaction sense. Almost everybody who enjoys drinking a glass of wine has dreamed of learning more about wine but been put off by the high price tags of extensive wine courses; The Traveling Vineyard provides access to Online courses, wine tasting guides, and expert assistance to make sure every Wine Guide becomes an expert capable of answering most questions about the wines they are working with.
