After picking up guests at their Temecula-area homes or hotels, WINEormous owner and tour guide Tom Plant steers his 2010 Toyota van toward four area wineries, introducing up to seven passengers to the nuances of each establishment. At each, they’ll get a chance to sample what makes each winery unique with included tastings. Since Plant knows many of the winemakers personally, he’s able to share the inside scoop on the wines and their production throughout the leisurely tour. Tours can be customized for each group, so guests are welcome to suggest wineries or styles of wine they’d especially enjoy getting to know or guests can let Tom suggest wineries based on guests' preferences.
“We’re not wine snobs; we just like good wine.” The motto of WINEormous sums up the working philosophy of laidback enophile Tom Plant. He scouts out wineries and wine-focused eateries in the 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 his guests, who learn the backstories behind tasting pours during their jaunts. WINEormous doesn't go unnoticed, though, having been recognized as the 2017 Wine Tour Operator of the Year for Temecula by the Luxury Travel Guide of London.
