Slower paced and a little more laid back is what you can expect this year on a Grape and Grain Wine tour.   Each stop we visit is known for their exceptional wines and their friendly & warm hospitality.   After the guided tastings you’ll have the opportunity to take pictures, make purchases or explore the vineyards.   Our lunch stop will be with our newest partner on the wine trail, The Local. Here you can choose anything off their breakfast or lunch menu.  Don’t forget to include one of their delicious smoothies or specialty coffees.

Don’t know where to start or how to plan your trip to Southwestern Michigan?  Below are some guidelines and helpful tips to follow that will ease you through the booking process and planning your day.  We’ve even included some links to our favorite places which can help you in your decision process as well. 

1. When booking a shuttle the first thing to do is check our calendar and see if the day you want is available.  Weekdays tend to be less busier than the weekends.    

2. Choose your pick up time.  Some wineries open at 10:00 am and some don’t open until 12:00 pm, so remember to check their hours of operation, especially on Sundays when places usually have a later start time.  Also, remember that we operate on Eastern Standard Time.   

3.  Where are we picking you up at?  We will come to your personal residence, hotel or AirBNB.  We also have numerous partners that offer discounts on shuttle rentals if you stay at one of their properties.  Check out our Partners via the link on our menu bar.  Pick up is 20 miles from our location in Baroda.  If you are out of this coverage area, Please do not book online, give us a call and we will let you know what the additional cost will be based on your address.   If you go over your rental time, we will charge the card on file $30.00 for every 15 minutes. 

4. Larger groups (more than 6) will need a reservation for wine tasting. Scheduled tastings usually take about 45 minutes.  Each winery is unique and have very different tastings/flights options to choose from.  Some may offer a structured tasking with a wine consultant that will help you choose what you want to taste and others may already have pre-selected flights to choose from like a sweet wine flight or a dry red flight.  Tastings can range from 4-7 samples and pours are usually 2-3 ounces per glass.  Flight prices vary as well and can range any where from $8 – $25 per flight.   

5. When booking a shuttle, remember to book early.  We tend to sell out of from April-October, so the sooner you book the better.
