About Traveling Vineyard
Traveling Vineyard, found online at TravelingVineyard.com, allows people to do one of their very favorite things in the comfort of their own homes – have a free wine tasting.
How Does It Work?
According to their website, everyone knows that you can’t tell if you will like a wine until you get a chance to actually taste it for yourself, but normally if you want to try a new wine outside of a restaurant you have to pay for a full bottle that you might not actually like.
The Traveling Vineyard gives people a chance to host a wine tasting in their home for themselves and their friends completely for free. All you have to do is contact a local Wine Guide, choose the five wines you would be most interested in tasting, and they will help you choose what appetizers or snacks would pair best with the flavor of those wines.
Hosts of the party will be given benefits based on the number of bottles their guests choose to purchase, and if you are interested, you can also speak to the Guide about taking advantage of this opportunity as a way to earn money for yourself.
This website actually does provide a full breakdown of their plan on their website, but as an example of the type of compensation they provide for their Wine Guides, the website says that all Guides will earn up to 35% marketing fees on the wine, accessories, and Wine Club memberships purchased in person and online. In addition the website says that most of their Guides earn an average of $100 for each party they host.
This website does not publish a full inventory or any specific pricing of any of their individual products, instead simply saying that their wines will range between $14 and $25 per bottle and that the majority of their wines are actually priced under $20 per bottle at this time. Any other specific information must be gotten from the Wine Guide that you speak with directly when scheduling your party. In addition, they do not openly publish the cost of their Starter Kit for people who are interested in their business opportunity, so that needs to be discussed with your Guide as well.
Much like their prices, this website does not openly publish a Refund Policy at this time, so when you speak to a representative about hosting a party or about the business opportunity, you can also question them about what kind of Return and Refund Policy applies to the products you are considering buying.

Multi level marketing companies are always difficult to evaluate based on their online reviews. Since recruiting new members to the opportunity is one of the most valuable ways of earning money with an MLM, it benefits the company to have everyone involved with their opportunity spend time and effort praising the company online.
That being said, there are some complaints about this company and their compensation plan, with previous representatives claiming that it can be very difficult to make money with this company until you have the ability to book regular parties, and this often doesn't happen until you are already an experienced network marketing. Because of this, this may not be the best opportunity for someone who is brand new to this type of industry.
Competitors and Alternatives?
There are many other wine services available that allow you to try wines in your home, including ClubW.com, TastingRoom.com, Firstleaf Wine Club, and many others, as well as a large variety of multi level marketing opportunities for people who are hoping to start their own independent business opportunity.
