“Need a break from the chaos called life then you need, "Vintage Tours"”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

My wife and I were celebrating an anniversary and wanted to getaway for the day and night. We read the five star reviews about Jo-Ann and her tours and to be honest we were skeptical. Man were we wrong, those reviews were on-point. The tour was fantastic, we not only enjoyed wines (white) that we normally do not drink but purchased them as well. Jo-Ann also did something we did not expect especially since we’ve been away from school over twenty years and that was educate us. What we learned helped us better understand the commitment it takes to make some of these wines which in turn will help us appreciate them more. If you only have time for one activity in the area, you must do this tour, you'll thank us afterward.

“My second tour with JoAnn- learned even more!”
Reviewed January 22, 2013

Jo Ann is professional and extremely knowledgeable about all things wine! This was my second tour with her- she is terrific! We went to 4 wineries and loved each one for a different reason. She knows everything there is to know about the wine growing and making process and is a great resource about the area as well. I would highly recommend her tours!

“A fantastic wine tour with a fantastic guide!”
Reviewed November 27, 2012

My husband and I visited the North Fork for two days over a weekend in October and we booked a wine tour with Jo-Ann of Vintage Tours. Jo-Ann is a fantastic guide that accommodates the desires and likes of her customers. She based her stops on the types of wines we enjoyed most. Jo-Ann even got us into Lieb Vineyards-which had only recently opened. It ended up being our favorite vineyard that we visited! We were served the most delicious gourmet lunch (and poured wonderful Pellegrini wines to accompany the lunch). Jo-Ann gave us the VIP treatment while on our wine tour!

“My kind of wine tour”
Reviewed October 26, 2012 via mobile

JoAnn of Vintage Tours provided a tour right up our alley. She provided a relaxing, insightful and fun tour. She is very knowledgeable of the area and of the wines and her warm and friendly personality were the highlights. She really takes the time to get to know what you like and caters the tour to that. She really made the whole experience so easy. I would definitely use this company again!!

“Best wine tour you could hope for..and even more!”
Reviewed September 26, 2012

I am back home in NYC and still smiling and talking about the fabulous wine tour with Jo-Ann.
Incredible! Great arrangements! I felt at home at every stop--5 of them--because it seems that all the owners and staff knew Jo-Ann and treated us and her like family.
It was my first wine tour and I doubt if it could be duplicated. I believe I got the best tour!
We had a good group and mix of participants…and Jo-Ann with her knowledge of the industry, processes, wines and the humans associated with all the wineries.

What a joy!!
