When you’re interested in wine but not crazy about crowds, try A Taste of Luxury private tour. Cville Tours has teamed up with Lexus of Richmond to create exclusive experiences for discerning oenophiles in central Virginia. You’ll travel in a chauffeured Lexus to three wineries, where you’ll take behind-the-scenes tours and a trained wine expert will lead you through tastings, including at least one special vintage not available to the public. More adventurous wine enthusiasts can opt for Cville’s vineyard horseback riding tour, which also includes chauffeured transportation and is paired with a VIP wine tasting. Prefer your indulgences dipped in chocolate? Try the Gearhart Chocolate Experience, which includes the chauffeured Lexus, a tour and chocolate tasting, and personal instruction in the art of chocolate making by Tim Gearhart himself.
