Our Story

I was celebrating my 44th birthday so I planned a wine tour to celebrate.  Who better to plan my birthday party then me! I wanted to keep it small so we put together a group of 14 in total.

I did some research on wineries in PA (did you know there are more than 200 in PA!) and landed on Setter Ridge Vineyards.  Once that was decided, I worked on transportation.  That was an easier decision as there is only one legitimate luxury transportation company in this space.

I spoke to an in-house “Sommelier” at Kevin Smith Transportation Group and we landed on one of their 18 passenger Party Buses.  Perfect!

About Setter Ridge Vineyards

Located in Berks County, PA, Setter Ridge Vineyards is the ultimate family run winery.  Mirrored after some of the most famous wineries in France, the history of the winery swallows you up from the minute you step on the property.

They hold a variety of tasting options and even run a fair number of special events, including a Cup Cake pairing that I am sad we didn’t attend.

Our Wine Tour at Setter Ridge Vineyards

We arrived for our tasting super excited.  The one hour Party Bus ride didn’t hurt!  A great way to travel for a wine tour.  We had scheduled a formal tasting, where we were going to get to taste 5 wines.

Our host was amazing.  He took his time with us, answered our thousands of questions and let us savor the experience.  Not only did we get to sample some amazing wines, but we really got a chance to unwind and have a ton of laughs.

We left the vineyard late afternoon and headed back home, ultimately stopping off for an early dinner and a continuation of a great day.  Riding in the Party Bus just made it that much more perfect.

Fun Facts about Setter Ridge Vineyards

Transportation Options

If you are considering booking a Wine Tour with Kevin Smith Transportation Group, know that there are many vehicle options to choose from.

Stretch Limousines

Kevin Smith Transportation Group offers a variety of stretch limousine options when we called them.  They included Lincoln MKT’s that could handle up to 8 passengers and a gorgeous white Stretch Denali that could handle up to 18 passengers.

Party Buses

When we called, the Party Bus options were amazing.  Besides all of the extra space you get, the music, televisions and other features made it a really nice option.  The coolest option was that they have Party Buses for groups of to 28.  For those people planning a Wine Tour for a large group, these are perfect.

Luxury Sedans and SUV’s

For smaller groups or couples, a luxury sedan or SUV is perfect.  You don’t have to worry about driving while tasting all of the amazing wines that are offered at the Pennsylvania Wineries and you can simply sit back, relax and enjoy the entire experience.

Last Words

Booking a Party Bus let us explore a winery that wasn’t as close to home as others as we didn’t have to worry about driving.  However, regardless of the wineries proximity, booking a chauffeured vehicle is the only way to go.
