It's been three months since I began offering winery tours, so I wanted to take this opportunity to reflect a little bit. At first I didn't really know how the concept would fly in Saint John. Sure, I had done the market research indicating a moderate interest in the subject. Sure, I had reached out to the wineries to get a feeling of their interest and what they knew about their customers. But I didn't know if anyone would actually GO on a winery tour.
I think all entrepreneurs come face-to-face with turning points throughout their careers. Mine was during a networking event, and most of the people there had heard about Uncorked Tours. I know there's still a long road ahead, and huge opportunities for wine tourism in New Brunswick, so I'm going to keep pounding the pavement and talking about NB wines to anyone who will listen :)
I'm excited for what the rest of the summer and fall will bring. Winery tours are being booked into October for cruise ship passengers sailing into Saint John. A wine tasting river cruise is scheduled for September 9 (GET TICKETS HERE), and private tastings are really taking off. I'm very grateful to the tourism operators who have taken me under their wing, there are many of you.
So while you take time to decide which Uncorked Tours option is the best for you, enjoy some photos of people who have already been Uncorked.
At Uncorked Tours we're all about sharing the fabulous wine, beer and spirits being produced in the Province of New Brunswick.
It is my pleasure to share with you the great food and drink being produced here in NB, as well as the awesome experiences you can have while living here or visiting the province.
May you always have good wine in your glass and friends to share it with.
