Is this picnic lunch included with my $99 tour price?
Yes it is.
Where will you serve this picnic?
We'll serve your lunch to you on the grounds of one of the wineries. While you are inside, tasting wine, we'll set up the lunch in the picnic area of the winery. When you come out, everyone will sit down to eat.
What will you serve?
This is a light & charming picnic buffet lunch. It consists of deli sandwiches on fresh sliced croissants (turkey breast, ham or salami), home made fresh pasta or grain salad, sliced fruits (some combination of apples, pears, Asian pears, pineapple and/or watermelon), a rolled-oat dessert cake and bottled water.
Sandwich condiments are served on the side: sliced cheeses, fresh-sliced tomatoes, fresh lettuce, mustard and mayo.
Is it yummy?
Will you accommodate vegetarians?
Yes! Please give us advance notice. We'll serve a hummus sandwich for you. The rest of the lunch is already vegetarian.
Is the hummus sandwich tasty?
How about other dietary restrictions?
We are rather good at accommodating a variety of dietary needs, particularly dairy and gluten restrictions. Again, please give us a heads-up.
So the cheese & cracker platter is in addition to the lunch?
Yes, you get that, too.
But still included in the tour price?
Cool. So what's on the cheese platter?
Usually, we have three or four savory cheeses. Some of our favorites are Havarti, Gouda, Mediterranean Jack, Romano, Irish Cheddar and Baby Brie. Also on the platter is a bowl of grapes and an assortment of crackers.
Yes. Chilled, bottled water is served on the bus and also with the picnic lunch.
May we have wine with our picnic lunch?
Yes. If you purchase a bottle of wine at the lunch winery, they will open it for you and provide you with glasses.
Your pasta and grain salads are so good! Can I get the recipes?
Yes! By popular and insistent demand, we now offer our recipes here for you to enjoy at home.
