A recent article that appeared on the trade website Affiliate Dork intrigued me. I am a huge lover of wines, but with three small children I find myself settling for grocery store wine rather than buying any wines worth a true tasting or pairing. The last great wines I brought home were from trips to Italy and Napa Valley, but those are since gone.
A concept the started in 2001, called Traveling Vineyard, has recently seen a huge rebloom as its “Wine Guides” take to social media to share their incredible stories of success and earned income, simply be sharing great wines with other people who love great wines. It sounded too good to be true, chatting about wine and sipping wine and then getting paid for it? But I reached out to real people via social media that had made excellent income and had wonderful things to say about the company and its support for its wine guides.
The concept is simple, yet sophisticated. Wine Guides host parties in the homes of friends, co-workers, acquaintances, really anyone who is interested in wine and would love a tasting. These tasting parties are absolutely free and come with six of Traveling Vineyard’s exclusive wine brands. Guest of the party sip and listen while the Wine Guide goes over details of the wine for the guests. Wine Guides don’t have to be aficionados. As soon as they sign up Traveling Vineyard sends a complete starter kit that includes not only glasses and an elegant 6 bottle carrying case, but an entire system that thought everything one would ever need to know about the wine.
At the end of a tasting, guests can simply select which wines and what quantity they would like to receive and the Wine Guide benefits from those sales. How perfect! Wine lovers get wonderful wines from Napa Valley and the Wine Guides get to do a truly fun job and share their love of wine with others.
The upsides to being a Wine Guide are incredible – set your own hours, the sky is the limit on income (you earn as much as you are willing to put into it) and Traveling Vineyard has an amazing success program that pairs new Wine Guides with a Leader, who serves as their personal mentor.
