You might be spending too much.  Here's your "spend less" guide to Grapeline and Wine Country in general.  

Flexible schedule?  Avoid Saturdays and other high-demand days, like the Sundays that fall on three-day weekends.  Not only are the wine tours $20 to $30 less on low-demand days, but the price tag for other wine country necessities (like lodging) is lower as well.  As a bonus, you'll find that tasting rooms, restaurants, shops, etc. are less busy and typically offer correspondingly better service.

Spending the night?  Many hotels offer packages that include a night of lodging and a Grapeline wine tour for two.  These packages are usually a better value than booking the components a-la-carte.

Coming in from out of the area?  Grapeline offers its lowest rates for local pickups.  Consider booking a hotel in the area, and the lower tour price will help pay for the hotel room.  OK, you'll probably spend a bit more, but it makes for a more relaxing and fun outing to stay locally and check out the area's dining options.

Shopping for wine?  Grapeline guests receive exclusive offers and discounts at many wineries, so spend less on wine.  Or just buy more wine... that's what we do.
