Here's how this wine gig works: Wine Guides connect with hosts to arrange free, in-home wine tastings. As a Wine Guide, you help the hosts prepare for the event and then take the lead at the tasting itself, walking guests through a simple appreciation of some really great wines. At the end of the night, you log their order information with World Headquarters and we take care of the rest.
The best part, though, is that when you sign on with Traveling Vineyard, you won’t just get a great home-based wine business that you can arrange to fit your unique circumstances—you get a network of support, training, and the opportunity to grow.
No prior expertise needed, no on-hand stock or monthly minimums. Just you, your needs, and a supportive community to back you up.

"I had no idea that liking wine could lead to the amazing #wineguidelife! Once I signed up to become a Wine Guide, I knew it was more than just a "side job." I was welcomed to a team of phenomenal people and assigned a true mentor and friend who was patient and supportive while I went through training and got my feet wet in the world of wine.
Every tasting that I've done has been rewarding, not only financially, but in life. I've gained new friends, new experiences, and made lots of memories. I've never had more fun "working"... being a Wine Guide really is a dream job."
"I love everything about being a Wine Guide. I very much enjoy wine, and with this job I am able to sample all kinds of wine and share my favorites with my friends, family, and customers. I also love the flexibility of this business. I can do a wine event when it fits my schedule, and there is no pressure about having a certain amount of tastings per month! I also truly enjoy getting out and meeting different people at my events. The bonus to all of this is that I actually get paid to drink wine, socialize with others, and have a flexible schedule! What is better than that?"
