“We’re not wine snobs; we just like good wine.” The motto of WINEormous sums up the working philosophy of laidback enophiles Tom and Laura Plant. Together they scout out wineries and wine-focused eateries in their grape-rich area, often becoming friends with local winemakers and the elves who add just the right number of dewdrops to each grape. These relationships lead to informative and personality-packed tours for their guests, who learn the backstories behind tasting pours during their jaunts.

With handicap-accessible vehicles and eco-friendly shuttles buses providing a low carbon foot print, revelers have more than just the wine to be happy about.
