Earn an extra paycheck while learning more about wine, meeting new friends and having fun!
Here's how this wine gig works: Wine Guides connect with hosts to arrange free, in-home wine tastings or virtual wine experiences. As a Wine Guide, you help wine party Hosts prepare for the event and then take the lead at the tasting itself, walking guests through a simple appreciation of some really great wines, whether in person or online. At the end of the event, you log their order information with World Headquarters and we take care of the rest.
The best part, though, is that when you sign on with Traveling Vineyard, you won’t just get a great home-based wine business that you can arrange to fit your unique circumstances—you get a network of support, training, and the opportunity to grow.
When a Wine Guide executes a fun, free in-home Wine Tasting event, they can expect an event average of about $500 in volume. A Wine Guide is paid Marketing Fees, and that $500 event turns in to approximately $100 in take-home cash for a Wine Guide!
No prior expertise needed, no on-hand stock or monthly minimums. Just you, your needs, and a supportive community to back you up.
Sign up for as low as $99!
*average event volume as of June 2022 is $551. Wine Guides earn 15-35% on their personally submitted event volume

Real Stories from our Rock Star Wine Guides
It's easy to fall in love with great wine and an extra paycheck, but the surprise is falling in love with the business, the company and a community of Wine Guides.
"I just celebrated my three year anniversary with Traveling Vineyard, and in all honesty, these have been three of the best years of my life. I had no idea that I even needed this business before I joined, and it has added so much value to my life. The extra income is great, but the sense of fulfillment and the friends that I have made as a result of this business, are priceless!"
"I love everything about being a Wine Guide. I very much enjoy wine, and with this job I am able to sample all kinds of wine and share my favorites with my friends, family, and customers. I also love the flexibility of this business. I can do a wine event when it fits my schedule, and there is no pressure about having a certain amount of tastings per month! I also truly enjoy getting out and meeting different people at my events. The bonus to all of this is that I actually get paid to drink wine, socialize with others, and have a flexible schedule! What is better than that?"
