About Us
What is grapeguides?

Founded in the fall of 2009, grapeguides strives to become the leading destination for people seeking to discover new wineries, plan wine-related travel and share their wine adventures. We believe the collective insights and experiences of our community of users (or 'guides') provide an invaluable resource. Through independent, unbiased winery reviews, you as guides help one another to discover and explore the best wines, the most unique vineyards, and the friendliest tasting rooms.

What Inspired grapeguides?

We enjoy immensely the experience of discovering and visiting unique wineries. However, we've struggled to find a high quality online resource that directs us to the best of what a particular wine region has to offer. Thus, historically we've relied on the insights of our friends to help us identify the best wineries to visit. Recognizing that there are millions of people like us who regularly visit wineries, we thought that there must be a better way of enabling people to share their experiences about the best and worst spots to taste new wines – grapeguides is our answer.

What's Next?

In the coming months we intend to introduce additional regions, both in the US and abroad. Let us know if you have a favorite wine region that you think we should include, particularly if you're interested in helping us launch it on grapeguides.

Thanks for Visiting!

Please take some time to explore our site. We hope that it will help you plan a great adventure in wine country. We'd love to hear about your experiences in your winery reviews and your wine trails.
