Custom-Curated U.S. Wine Trips

For wine vacations within the United States, our editor and founder, Elaine Schoch, can help design your perfect travel program.

You will hold a 30-45 minute travel planning session with Elaine via phone call, Skype, or Zoom to discuss where you plan to visit, a potential itinerary and preliminary recommendations, answer any questions, and discuss logistics.

Following the call, you will receive more details, recommendations on where to sip, stay, and things to do, our step-by-step guide to follow, wine tasting tips, and a personalized Google map with the recommendations discussed.

At this time, this service does not include booking any reservations. We will, however, provide links, contact information, and resources for you to make the bookings yourself.

The Wine+Art+Music Experience

Food and wine pairings aren’t new but what about pairing wine WITH art and music for a complete multi-sensory immersion experience? (Did I just blow your brain?!?!)

Carpe Travel has teamed up with contributing writer, Simone FM Spinner to bring you The Wine+Art+Music Experience.

Simone, a certified sommelier and wine educator, creates immersive aesthetic experiences where she expertly pairs art and music with wine by analyzing the theoretical aesthetic elements of each genre and identifying intersections between the three mediums. She uses this research to select complementary groupings that enhance the sensory experience. More details on how the event works.
