I have many loves in my life – my kids, my husband, my job – and among those is wine. If you’re like me and enjoy a glass or two of a refreshing white or fruity red, then I have excellent news for you!
Your love for, or even an interest in, wine could not only help you learn more about different wine varieties, how to correctly taste wine, which foods to pair with which wines, and more, but it could also put a little cash in your pocket.
Traveling Vineyard is a special direct sales company that lets people earn a flexible income by doing what they love; sharing their passion for wine with friends! They have launched thousands of Wine Guides into successful work at home jobs, because unlike other direct selling concepts, everybody likes to relax, enjoy and taste some free wine.
The company has more than 5,000 Wine Guides across the country that have discovered the fulfillment, friendship, flexibility, financial reward and fun that comes with educating others about great-tasting wines. And they’re looking to double that number and get YOU involved! Imagine that your job involves getting a bunch of friends together to taste some wine, have fun, and learn about pairing and just exactly how to pronounce words like Nero D’Avola and Pinotage.
You’ll also learn how to pair wines with popular foods or how to find that dish that goes perfectly with that special bottle of wine you’ve been saving. You’ll even learn why serving licorice or Macadamia nuts with your wine can enhance its flavors. Yeah, that’s a thing.
Each bottle of wine from Traveling Vineyard also features a site, Sommology Key and a QR code. Scan the QR code for taste information, cost, reviews, and more about the wine. You guys – HOW COOL IS THIS?
How Traveling Vineyard Works
Becoming a Wine Guide is easy—there is a small upfront investment, the company provides you with all of the tools that you need to host your first tasting, and there are no sales quotas to meet or requirement to purchase inventory.
After you you receive your initial inventory, you’ll be assigned a leader in your area. You can even shadow their tasting events, which will give you insight and fun ideas to host your own events. You have instant and ongoing access to all of our training modules, which include introductions to our wines, instructions on building a team and growing a business, videos on how to conduct a tasting, and much more.
You can also attend the annual Traveling Vineyard Harvest! There’s dancing, wine-tasting, and costume competitions – of course! You’ll also treated to training sessions designed to help Wine Guides advance their understanding of wine, of business development, and of entrepreneurship.
