Grapevine Travelers in Medford.
We stopped in last weekend at Grapevine Travelers in Medford for for one of their Grand Tastings, held twice a year. Over 100 wines are available for your sampling and a 10% discount for 6 bottles, 20% for 12.
Some of the 14 Distributors participating.
At this event no less than 14 Distributors participated each of which provided very knowledgeable staff. The crowd ranged from those who knew very little about wine to true oenophiles. We overheard several representatives giving mini "Wine 101" classes and others discussing grapes, regions and production methods in detail. So, there really is something for everyone. It really reminded us of a smaller, more intimate Wine Expo, making it a comfortable alternative to those huge crowds and expensive admission fees.
The very popular Grand Tasting at Grapevine Travelers.
The store also holds smaller weekly wine tastings every Saturday afternoon. For more information just click on the link below and sign up for their weekly email.
The crown ranges from very knowledgeable to novices and all questions are welcome.
