Bachelorettes party on a private wine tour in Sonoma
Ten sorority sisters take a private wine country tour and at the end of the
day . . . leave their lingerie on the bus. Nope, it’s not a joke.
They gathered in San Francisco in June for a reunion and bachelorette party. Stephanie McCay of Denver, who organized the trip, told us they wanted:
- time to hang out and catch up
- a memorable day in the wine country
- and a private tour tailored just for their group
After calling several tour companies, she talked to Elie at Green Dream. “I was excited because he said we’d have our own bus and be visiting boutique wineries where we’d probably be the only the guests,” says Stephanie.
The women loved the more personalized and intimate Green Dream tour. At the smaller wineries they actually met the winemakers and heard their stories. In fact, at Peter Cellars in Sonoma, when the winemaker found out several in the group were pregnant or new moms, he introduced them to his three-week-old baby.
“The best possible tour guide”
“Our tour guide, Adam, knew when to let us do our own thing and when to chime in,” Stephanie says. And the friends were really glad not to be on a large bus with other groups, especially at the end of the day when their party got livelier and louder.
Everyone had a great time. The bride loved it, even though she doesn’t exactly remember all the details . . . like leaving her lingerie on the bus.
Now don’t jump to conclusions. The fancy undies were gifts from her friends and she had tucked the package under her seat while they were touring.
Adam to the rescue
That night Adam met the group at a restaurant to return the gifts. Not wanting to carry the pink Victoria’s Secret bag, he disguised it in a brown paper bag. Stephanie says, “He really went above and beyond, and he ended up joining us for the rest of the evening.”
