290 Wine Shuttle recently celebrated our 10 year anniversary! It’s hard to believe that we have been shuttling individuals from all over Texas (and the nation!) up and down the 290 Wine Trail for 10 years. In honor of our 10 year anniversary, we thought we would share 10 things that you should know about us! Whether you’re a 290 Wine Shuttle regular, or are waiting for the perfect time to see what we are all about, keep reading to learn a thing or two about us and our services.
1. We are truly a one-of-a-kind wine shuttle service.
Did you know that we are the only shuttle service in the entire nation that offers a hop-on,-hop-off service to wineries on a 10-minute schedule? Our frequent stops make it convenient for you, your friends, and your family to make the most of your time on Fredericksburg’s 290 Wine Trail.
2. We stop at 21 different wineries and distilleries.
The wineries and distilleries we partner with offer a wide range of experiences, wines, and activities, and we can assure you that there’s a venue (and usually more than a few) for everyone. Read about each of the wineries on our route, then map out your plan of attack. You might not be able to hit every single winery in one day, but we won’t stop you from trying!
3. We started from humble beginnings.
290 Wine Shuttle began its operation with only two 15-passenger vans and two employees. It has now grown to over 30 employees and 20 shuttle buses. We are still family owned and operated and honored to provide our services in the beautiful city of Fredericksburg, Texas. Thank you for continuing to share your weekends with us and bring your friends back year after year. We couldn’t be where we are without you!
4. We are rated #1 on TripAdvisor.
Thanks to over 1,000 5-star reviews from our guests, we are rated the #1 Transportation in Fredericksburg on TripAdvisor! We are so grateful for each and every customer review.
5. We like to have fun on Fridays, too!
Our signature wine shuttle service might run on Saturdays, but we’ve curated a wine shuttle experience for Fridays, too! Our Friday wine shuttle runs from 11am to 4pm, and you can select three of 12 wineries to visit. Learn more about Fun Fridays on the 290 Wine Shuttle.
6. We will store your wine for you.
Who wants to carry bottles of wine around all day long? We didn’t think so. That’s why, for only $5, we will hold your merchandise with us on the shuttle. You can leave your merchandise with our shuttle drivers until 3pm. Now there’s no reason to feel like you can’t buy a bottle at your first stop!
7. We offer event transportation in Fredericksburg, TX.
Whether it’s for a wedding, corporate outing, or other private event, we can handle the transportation for you! We have earned the reputation as Fredericksburg’s #1 choice for convenient, affordable, and dependable transportation. Our fleet of 15-passenger vans and spacious shuttle buses accommodate groups of all sizes.
8. We allow (small) dogs!
If your furry best friend is under 25 pounds, you are welcome to bring them along for the ride! Keep in mind that not all of the 290 Wine Trail wineries permit dogs, so we recommend contacting the wineries you plan to visit ahead of time.
9. We offer full refunds 24 hours in advance.
Change of plans? We hope this doesn’t happen, but if you need to cancel your wine shuttle reservations for any reason, you can get a full refund if you cancel by 10am the Friday before your scheduled reservation. Then you can reschedule for a time that works better for you.
10. We couldn’t do this without you.
We couldn’t end this post without a huge thank you to every single customer who has trusted us with your 290 Wine Trail experience. There’s absolutely no way we could do what we do without your support, referrals, reviews, and more. Thanks for making the last 10 years unforgettable!
Here’s to the next 10 years of memories, growth…and lots of wine! If you have never experienced the 290 Wine Shuttle, or even if you have, book your trip today! We can’t wait to have you!
