Free wine tastings with your Visa credit card!
I like wine. I think it tastes good. I like wine even more when I don’t have to pay for it!
There are dozens of Visa Signature and Visa Infinite credit cards on the market today, and many bloggers tout the amazing benefits (including us) that the cards offer, such as Baggage Insurance, Trip Delay Coverage, Rental Car Insurance, etc.
But a lot of these cards come with hidden benefits that not many people know of. One such benefit that Ben and I take advantage of is the Visa Signature Sonoma County wine tasting discounts.
(Update, the offer has been extended through December 2017!)
Now through the end of 2017, if you simple show and pay for any wine tasting from a list of 60 wineries in Sonoma county, you’ll get the 2nd wine tasting for free! BOGO wine 🙂 Also, if you really like the wine, and decide to take it home with you, then you can avail yourselves of discounts through those wineries. The list of participating wineries is listed on this landing page. It’s limited to one BOGO per winery per day, but you can always go back for more tomorrow!
Don’t want to drive around after drinking so much? Sonoma County also offers a discount on pre-booked transport with PureLuxury of Sonoma county. If you identify yourself as a Visa Signature card holder, you can receive a 15% discount off the service. Not too shabby! The information for them is listed at the bottom of this page.
Here’s all the dirty nasty fine print associated with this:
Offer valid 2/1/2016-12/31/2017. Eligible cardholders must be 21 years of age or older. Visa Signature cardholders or Visa Infinite cardholders who purchase one (1) standard tasting using their Visa Signature or Visa Infinite card will receive one (1) complimentary tasting of equal or lesser value. Visa Signature cardholders and Visa Infinite cardholders are also eligible to receive discounts on (i) non-wine merchandise, (ii) wine purchased same day in the Tasting Rooms and (iii) Reserve tastings or special wine and food pairings at participating wineries. Discount amount and availability may vary by winery. All discounts are at the sole discretion of the winery. Only purchases made with a valid Visa Signature card or a valid Visa Infinite card will be eligible for the discount offers. There is a redemption limit of 1 buy one get one complimentary tasting per cardholder per winery per day. Offer is non-refundable. Visa and Sonoma County Vintners reserve the right to modify or cancel this offer at any time and without notice. Applicable taxes must be paid by purchaser. Void where prohibited.
Live in or Visiting Seattle?
If you’re living in or planning to visit Seattle, the Alaska Airlines Bank of America Credit card also comes with some pretty nice wine tasting benefits. Simply by showing your card at over 40 Woodinville wineries, you get a free tasting, not even a BOGO!
