WINERY TOURS

WINERY TOURS OVERVIEW
2017 WINE TOUR DETAILS...
The Youngstown Ski Club has successfully ran several winery tours for over 9 years. We typically organize two of these interesting one-day trips each year, one in the Spring, and another in the Fall. Our Winery Tours typically include: round-trip motorcoach transportation, tastes at each winery, site tours when available, history of winemaking, lunch, hors d'oeuvres, taxes, bottled water, and sometimes driver gratuity. The wineries offer both glasses and bottles for purchase and some include a gift shop. Sometimes, depending on the date, there can be some sort of entertainment at each venue as well. Nearly all the wineries offer amazing scenic views and grounds to explore. A dinner stop is provided for participants to enjoy a good meal on their own at the end of the day. Often, the dinner stop is at the last winery, but it is possible a nearby restaurant can be just as accomodating. If time permits, the ride home may include games and a movie.

Winery Tours are open to the public and everyone of legal drinking age is encouraged to participate. They are very popular to our members and guests. Club organizers are often questioned about the next tour and when deposits can be sent. Due to the high volume of interest on these trips, we encourage all participants to act swiftly in booking your seat, as space is limited. Reservations are only booked with a deposit or when paid in full. Participants that pay IN FULL have first preference.

These trips are organized according to interest, winery location, and the availability of service and dates. In every organized Winery Tour, our enthusiastic and professional Trip Managers consider value, quality, reputation, and member recomendations in booking transportation and winery selections. Often, when available through fundrasing efforts, we apply subsidies to trip costs, thus reducing the financial burden on member participants.
Hence, the slightly lower cost offered to paid members, and one of the advantages of joining the Club...
 
Please note, that certain restrictions and business agreements are in place with our transportation providers and the winery venues. Deposit payments may be required in advance in order to book, and there may be a deadline for payments due. Moreover, both the Club and wineries do not have a tolerance for participants that overindulge. It is strongly advisable that you compose your behavior at all times during this event. Trip Flyers contain all the relevant information pertaining to deposit amounts, payment schedules, liability release, and contact information of Trip Manager(s). 
 
Regardless, travelling with the Youngstown Ski Club provides its guests with group pricing, friendship, fun, and no-hassle booking. We eliminate the headache of organizing, planning, tracking, and collecting monies, as all you do here is pay, board, and join us for an adventurous day! Whether or not it's due to the affects of wine, or genuine enthusiasm, you will certainly have fun...
