Richard Sarvis found himself driving his wife and her friends to various local wineries on a regular basis. He would drive and watch, and visit with the winery owners, as they enjoyed wine tastings. Soon, he realized that his service was being used more and more, by more and more people and developed friendships with many of the owners. The idea for NC Grape Escape Tours soon followed.
Everyone enjoys spending time with friends and family. Touring some of North Carolina's local wineries is a marvelous way to spend an afternoon or evening. Our local wineries offer live entertainment, dancing, games and, of course, a relaxing place to sit and visit with friends while enjoying the best wines around.
NC Grape Escape Tours takes the worry out of wine tasting. By offering quality transportation, you can visit multiple wineries and experience the different flavors of wines offered by each without worrying about who is the designated driver.
We'll teach you the basics of "wine etiquette" and inform you of the events happening at each winery destination. We'll give you plenty of time to purchase your favorites and keep those precious bottles safe on the trip.
