Collaborative Partnerships for Exclusive Events

Taste Vacations has been partnering with businesses, musicians, media, and individuals to organize and run tours specific to their personal purpose, passion, or career focus, for more than 20 years.

Are you in the wine or beer industries, an artist or musician, an influencer, or a chef & tastemaker? Do you want to share a love of food, wine, or beer with your members, followers or audience? Let’s collaborate to provide an exclusive event for your group!

Together we’ll pick the destination, theme, and the activities tailored for your clients, or followers. Then, you can count on us to execute all of the logistics for each trip—including booking each guest and providing expert guides. You market the trip to your audience or community, serve as the liaison, earn a commission for each paying guest, and get to enjoy a free vacation with your group.

Thanks to Zephyr and Taste I'm able offer my customers and community unique beer and wine travel experiences. They bring a level of professionalism as well as fun while handling all the detailed planning and logistics. It's really added another dimension to what we're already doing to build and connect with our community that we could not have done on our own as a small business.
