You will be notified at time of quotation as to which wineries/venues are "weather dependent", which venues only have outside options with semi-protection( Canopy/Umbrella/ Overhang), the 10-14 venues may close if rain is in the forecast, the very few venues that permit you to choose an indoor or outdoor seating option and the few wineries that will be able to provide seating inside in case rain is in the forecast.
There are several wineries that require prepayment in full
There are several wineries that require Direct Interaction with our client / "You" our client for contact-less payment and other payment solutions during this time.
Paumanok & Jamesport Vineyard are among a few that charge a reservation fee in advance
Your quote(s) and reservation form will indicate if you need to be directly involved.
1. The Client(s) signing the reservation form are responsible for the actions of others in their group. If there is a delay caused by others in the group, other than the "signing" client, the client is responsible for any over-time or payment to wineries where the delay caused the reservation to be void. It would be the responsibility of the "signing" client to collect funds from the rest of the group to reimburse themselves. A Major CC will be on file in case of this situation. The "client" shall be the only person contacting us for change requests or clarification of terms. Please do not have other guests in the Group contact our office looking to cancel if the request falls into the "No Cancellation period" ** (described below)
2. Reservations require a signature and a major Credit Card on file whether or not Tour is paid via Cash, Corp Check, Gift Certificate or Credit Card. A 10% down payment** (15% for 14 Passenger Vehicles or greater) non refundable via Credit Card is required upon receipt of the reservation form for all Vehicles after the client has signed our E-Adobe ( electronic Signature for easy convenience).
**Please Note: If any Venue on the reservation requires any form of down payment; some wineries require (50% or 100%) upfront payment with cancellation policies, the 10% / 15% generic down payment will NOT cover any venue payments made by our company; East End Wine Tasting Tours or Roadmaster Limousine Service, IF the client cancels any number of people within the Cancellation Window of the Venue.
Our company must be reimbursed for laying out any monies associated with any mandatory down payments.
After receipt of signed Wine Tour reservation form which will also allow credit card authorization for down payment only, client shall "call in" credit information and we will deduct 10% / 15% from the reservation total. We will then also update the form and send back to the client via pdf format and via email. No need to sign again. A simple email acknowledgement is all that is required after initial signature. A Lunch Order form for Boxed Lunch Option(if applicable) will also be included in the 1st email after signature is complete.
The remainder of the tour payment shall be paid in CASH on day of wine Tour unless other payment option has been specified. If Credit Card or Gift Certificate or Check (Corporate outing) is the mutually agreed method of payment for the tour, then further instructions would be given. The Credit Card payment option will be limited to “1” Credit Card per Tour. Our cash payment tours are discounted from Credit Card payment. CC Payment will include service fee, full profit on all wine tasting fees, tours, lunches and applicable sales tax. CC payment is paid in full 4 days in advance. Check Payment is paid in full / cleared 5 days in advance.
All of our client copy wine tour reservation forms will have information regarding the selected wineries in terms of reserved tables or not, whether food or boxed lunches are permitted in the selected wineries (outside or inside or both) and the client responsibility for certain wineries/venues that require a separate reservation form and / or down payment requirements. In those cases, if the client has a change in group size where they have a separate agreement, the client alone, NOT OUR TOUR company, must contact those wineries and change the group size.
Cancellation polices may apply **- especially certain wineries as well as special tours of wineries etc. This would be noted on the client's reservation form.
Cancellation policy ** complete details –
10% or 15% nonrefundable deposit due at signing of reservation. ( refundable only if NY State or Local Govt or super storm cancels tours that day/ winery shutdown)
100% cancellation fee ** usually within 7 days of the tour date and for 14+ Passenger Vehicles there is a 14 Days 100% Cancellation Fee (Occurs a few times per year – and sometimes owner shows some compassion when the entire reservation is cancelled- depends on vehicle capacity, type and re-booking probabilities) (In effect: 10.14.2022)
IN ADDITION to the 10% or 15% Down payment **: If there are any wineries, breweries ( other venues) that are prepaid or have any cancellations policies of their own – which usually are 2 to 5 Days; some are 7 day cancellations.
So If a party cancels which thus violates a respective venue's cancellation policy & has been Prepaid by OUR Company, the Client / Party is responsible for payment to us. We/ Our company clearly indicate a cancellation policies on Client Reservation Form.
Not Included: At times, there are venues that require prepayment by the CLIENT. Client is therefore directly responsible to settle / contact winery.
FYI: We advise which wineries / venues have a cancellation policy at time of quote / reservation.
Most Venues have at least a 24 Hr policy with Tour Groups and General Public. Real estate or seating is limited and at a premium, if there is a no show or a cancellation within 24 hrs, the venues are expected to get paid.
If there is a “Client directed cancellation” within those (7) days and any of the selected wineries are a prepayment requirement direct by us to the venue, we have the flexibility to cancel payments to those venues even though we are finalized with you, the Client.
We send a CC Authorization email to each winery (4-5) days prior/or other venue that requires prepayment before client date of tasting/ and before their respective cancellation period. Not all wineries require upfront or advanced payment.
The respective winery/venue usually wait until “their” cancellation period and then they charge our CC. (This way you/ the Client are not responsible for additional payments to us, so to reimburse us for any "Prepayment Venues" – again only if you cancel your tour within a specific window of time) This way we can lessen the costly pain of a client requested cancellation.
There will be NO refund for having less people on the day of the tour and within a (5) Days / 120 hour period of the tour date. These tours are rather complex and very difficult to change within a 120 hour period.(Updated: 06.04.2022)
OTHER FYI(s): Please bear in mind, that wineries have allocated and setup for a specific group size upon your arrival at a winery. If your group participates ( reserved and paid for) for a vineyard walk or tour of a winery and less people show up for that tour, the wineries have every right to charge for that "spot" or prior reservation. Spaces are limited on wine tours; so the winery expects to be paid. Select wineries will request a credit card DIRECT from our client and will provide a separate reservation form. Select wineries may charge client's CC in full after completion of the wine tasting or tour. If there are less people on the reservation ( that is the separate reservation/contract between our client and the winery), the winery will also charge for the "no-shows" or according to their specific conditions on the contract between client and winery. We always "deduct" the cost of these wineries that require direct payment from the client and indicate as such on our reservation forms to our client.
Prices and vehicles are subject to change. Based on "potential" unforeseen circumstances brought to our attention by the Vineyards, our guests will be informed of any changes if our office is notified. Wine tasting fees will fluctuate due to seasonal pouring changes ( 40% of the wineries changes their offerings each season). Wine flights (servings) can change at vineyards’ discretion and without notification. Wineries may book a private event on day of your tour which may conflict with the wine tasting. If so, we will contact our guest and make a change which is suitable with both you and another winery. We will provide this information at or around the time of reservation, again, if we are notified.
Wine Tasting Fees will be paid directly to Wine Tasting Room Manager by our Guests (mid week and for groups less than (8)) - ONLY IF our clients prefer to handle all wine reservations and payment transactions themselves...OTHERWISE the chauffeur will accompany the group into the tasting room and pay for the wine tastings fees. A detailed itinerary shall be emailed to the tour group leader (one who places reservation) prior to trip date. Trust us, it will never be more expensive if you book the wineries thru our service. In fact pricing will be the same or less thru us. Most of the time, groups who pay on their own lose 20 minutes per winery as they do not knwo who to pay, etc..
A menu for Gourmet style boxed lunches shall be emailed as well. All Lunch choices must be submitted to our wine tour service (5) days prior to reserved date. Lunch offerings range from a boxed gourmet type lunch, which is ordered thru us prior to tour date and can be eaten at 10% of the wineries in a designated area of the participating venue, which in many cases is outdoors. You may also elect to bring your own lunch. There are some lunch trucks located at a couple of wineries, ONLY in the town of Riverhead. All Food trucks have been banned at Vineyards that are located in the town of Southold ( where approx 70% of all wineries are located). NO outside alcohol or celebration decorations are permitted in any vineyard.
3. Wine Tastings & Costs can change as per Vineyard discretion. Will update and notify customer if change will impact reservation price. If a Vineyard is closed due to police or legal action or "act of God", we will do our best to replace the vineyard. There is no guarantee of a replacement on weekends during "high" season ( Later Summer thru October).
4. There will be NO refund for having less people on the day of the tour than what was originally contracted for. Total Amount is based on the Price per guest & is dependent on the Vehicle Type's ( MINIMUM Occupancy Range) shown beneath "Date of Tour" on the left side of the reservation form. The Price/Guest will be the same in that Group Range. If Group size falls below the "Low Range qty" then the price Per Guest WILL INCREASE for that reserved vehicle
4a. Unfortunately we can't reimburse for bereavement for individual guests of a wine tour group reservation; however wine tasting fees and lunches can be deducted if notified outside a 96 hour window. Reservations are set - lunches ordered( if applicable) outside 96 Hours.(updated 05.31.2022)
5. Payment type discussed at reservation initiation. Check required for a deposit. Credit Card must be on file regardless of type of payment.
6. Cancellation Charges will apply without proper - timely notice from our Customer. Cancellation on individuals within 120 Hours** of the tour date will not be refundable* if Boxed Lunches were not included and if we can get reimbursed by venues that may have required an upfront payment by our company if the cancellation does not violate the respective venue policy. Any "direct client" interaction with a venue that required prepayment or other policy, will require Group leader to try to negotiate with respective venue. ( NOTE: ** - was 72 Hours prior to 10.25.2022)
7. We reserve the right to substitute vehicles in case of accident or mechanical issues beyond our control.
8. "Extra Hours -Add'l Cost" - if vehicle does NOT depart on time or if extra stops (as per customer request) are not on the schedule thereby preventing the vehicle from arriving at the predetermined drop off time, the extra hourly rate will apply.
9. Motion sickness suffering in vehicle - $375 min fee!-
10. Please NO Glitter glasses inside our vehicles
11. NO smoking anything . Please respect our Vehicle Property
12. Reservations are “live” on days of RAIN; with the exception of Super Storms and snow storms that can close roads and the Vineyards. There will be NO refund on days of Rain ** ( Unless Covid-19** closes ALL your venues on your reservation)
14. Bachelorettes / Party Groups- Refrain from bringing naughty novelties into the Vineyards.
15. Roadmaster Limousine and Car Service (East End Wine Tasting Tours ™) and its affiliates will not be responsible for delays caused by weather, road or traffic conditions, mechanical failure or any other conditions beyond our control. We will, however, provide additional time for the wine tour if a delay caused by "us" during the initial pickup etc.
Guests may submit their choice on "online" reservation form or by placing a call to our office at 631.366.6397. The Winery owners reserve the right to reject a request for reservation based on size of group and limitations of particular vineyards or time slot availability. Please note there are select vineyards that do NOT permit limousines or buses. There are also vineyards who do not allow limousines and/or buses after 1:30-2:30 PM unless proof can be provided that particular vineyard is the first or only establishment that Limousine/Bus will enter. An early start to your day is your best bet!
