Escape touring options
No two tours are the
same with Grape Escape, but most
small groups range in size from
eight to twelve people and most include
visits to two or three wineries.
Customers enjoy the
comfort, ride and views that Grape Escape's luxury vans provide as they
traverse the scenic, sometimes rugged, Oregon Wine Country. If your
group is larger, a second "Vimo" is provided or even a third... or more, for
extra large groups - all the way up to 60. Customers enjoy
this approach for groups of varying sizes; they receive a more
personalized experience, while being able to visit with the entire
group at each winery. Even larger groups can arrange for an
appropriate-size vehicle that works for them and for the wineries visited
that day. Either way, Grape Escape handles all the details so you
can relax and experience wine country in comfort.
Escape tours fall into
two basic categories:
Escape's Private Tours are personalized for you and your group. From Mini,
Half Day and Full Day escapes to Dinner Escapes,
Corporate & Private Events and
Custom Escapes, you'll find all Grape Escape private tours can be
further enhanced by the inclusion of additional touring and tasting options.
If you are thinking about putting
together a wine-themed event for
corporate team building
or client relations,
or want to plan a bit more complex
private event, or if your group is larger than
most, no worries. Companies from Travel Portland to Nike,
The Disney Company to guests of State Senators, from Ameriprise to Autodesk have trusted
Grape Escape to work their magic on many an event extraordinaire.
Grape Escape can arrange a wine country or urban escape for groups from 20
