Winery Shops

I'm not new to mystery shopping (my first shop was paper based LOL). I'm new to getting a bunch of Winery shops in Niagara Falls! Does anyone have any tips on completing these?

I've done quite a few of these over the years. If the instructions don't say anything about it, I say I am looking for a bottle for someone else. I'm not a wine expert so that opens the door for them to ask a lot of questions about who I am buying it for. Don't get so involved in the tasting that you forget to look for the wine tasting fees, wine prices, spittoon, etc. It's really easy to get caught up in the tasting and conversation. And I usually try to use the rest room as soon as I go in as it is easy to forget. Good luck and enjoy!

Also check their hours. They each have their own individual days open and hours of operation.

Not so many viniventures where I am at. Some bar shops and occasional fine dining. Hey, more clients being added all the time.

I don't know why wineries in the San Jose area don't have them.

I wonder which mystery shop companies (if any) have the contracts for wineries in Tennessee? There are several wineries in East TN, especially on the Cumberland Plateau and around the Great Smoky Mountains. How would a person find out? (I would love to do some of these!)

The wineries in Ontario are under VQN so I think it is part of their mandate to have mystery shoppers. There are over 160 Ontario wineries producing VQA wines of various appellations - all backed up by VQA Ontario's assurance of origin and quality.
