Nominated as the Best Wine Tour Company!

We are very excited (and extremely humbled) to announce that Asheville Wine Tours, which is a Van in Black company, has been nominated as a “10 Best” wine tour company in the United States by USA Today. Asheville Wine Tours is the only North Carolina company to make the list of 20 wine tour companies. The list contains many well established and better known wine regions such as Napa Valley, Sonoma, and Paso Robles of California as well as the Finger Lakes region of New York and more. This is truly an honor for our company and even more so, in our opinion, for the beautiful vineyards and wineries in this region which is what makes our wine tours so epic.
