Katie Hayward started Uncorked Wine Tours back in 2010. She is a local native with a passion for the central coast. Uncorked Wine Tours is based on the California’s central coast region serving all of San Luis Obispo county including Paso Robles and San Luis Obispo wine countries.
We are located 300 miles north of Los Angeles and 300 miles south of San Francisco. We do have a private and public airport, so guests from all over the world can fly here. California locals also find it fun to ride the train up the coast. Uncorked will pick up from train stations and the airports. We specialize in private personalized and completely customizable tours, so we can set up the perfect experience for our groups based on their taste preferences. The winery options are limitless and we can also add in beer, spirits or olive oil tasting. Our guides provide knowledge of the area, expertise on the wineries, and we have complimentary water bottles on board. We can also add in other elements to the experience such as horseback riding through a vineyard, zip-lining, or educational components such as blending seminars or tours of vineyards and wineries.
Katie’s joy and passion comes from setting up the perfect experience for each group. She is still hands on with every tour and takes a lot of pride into every tour that goes out. Some people come to wine country and know exactly where they want to go. Other groups have no idea so we will ask specific questions that will help us guide them appropriately. We also provide concierge services to our guests which is helpful with other aspects of planning your trip to the Central Coast. We have been blessed to be involved with engagements, graduation celebrations, pre and post weddings, milestone anniversary parties, and much more. We enjoy seeing all of our repeat customers come back year after year and love meeting newbies to our area. Uncorked Wine Tours definitely specializes in the touring spectrum, but at the end of the day we are a transportation company. We can provide shuttling needs for small and large groups for dinner, trips to Hearst Castle, weddings and much more. Our fleet is capable of taking one person and up to 14 in one vehicle, but can do multiple vehicles if the group is larger than 14. We also offer options for corporate and team building events.
The central coast continues to evolve and change and Uncorked Wine Tours provides our expertise to all that come so that they can make the best use of their time while they are here.
