Wine tasting fees:
Tasting Fees are not included and here's why.
This is to SAVE you $$$$
You are not required to taste at the wineries or buy wine.
Fees are charged by wineries to compensate for the wines they pour, and labor for your wine tasting experience.
Nearly all wineries charge these fees, but most will waive them if you are purchasing a certain amount of bottles of wine. ASK!
Some guest like to share their tastings or even skip a winery.
If we pay for your tasting fees, wineries WILL NOT waive the fee, so you pay the fee whether you purchase wine or not.
The tasting fee's are currently $20 for ALL THREE WINERIES per guest for six tastes at each winery.
Every winery has their own special discounts they offer NM Wine Tour guests, $20 is unheard of these days for 3 wineries!!!
Do I tip the winery host?
It would be much appreciated if you tip your servers at least 15% please
Your servers do not make a commission or does NM Wine Tours on any wine purchased.
