Love Wine? Love History?

This is your opportunity to plan a day with friends and family enjoying both!

Good Morning,

I woke up feeling so thankful today for the blessing of yesterday and the excitement of tomorrow!  What an amazing adventure and memory we made together on the inaugural Hampton Roads Roots Wine Trail Tour!  Thank you for being a special part of our 2nd Anniversary and Black History Month Celebration. Be sure to check out for information and events about Native & African American history.  We enjoyed hearing all of your positive comments and sharing this experience with you.  Special thanks to my beloved husband, Harry King, Nana-in-law, Lisa Arnold, Auntie Lou Lloyd and Captain Ray Walker of Tidewater Touring for their professionalism, kind service and abundant love.

To book a future Fruits & Roots Wine Tour, you may use COUPON CODE: RETURN (for your ticket only) and receive a 20% discount.  Our general sale price is $175, so you will pay only $140, all inclusive.  This is quite a deal especially for our signature monthly Monticello Wine Trail Tour, which visits New Kent Winery, Michie Tavern, Barboursville and Horton Vineyards.  Also, for our upcoming Northern Virginia Wine Trail Tour on Saturday, May 18, 2019 to Chrysalis Vineyards, Salamander Resort, Cobbler Mountain Cider and Effingham Manor Winery.  Transportation for these tours is a 55 passenger luxury coach bus with USB ports, Wifi and lavatory with live historical entertainment and lots of wine.

Please connect with us on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, LinkedIn, Yelp and TripAdvisor, and please share your pictures and videos from our tour.  We are honored to have you join our Fruits & Roots Wine Tours family of friends, where all inclusive is all exclusive.

As promised below are the wines we served on the bus and the contact information for Gwen Hurt and Shoe Crazy Wine.  Please feel free to contact me or Gwen if you have any questions.  We are delighted that you have become a fan of Shoe Crazy and Fruits & Roots, and we hope to see all of you again soon.
