Natchez Trace Wine Trail

Our first meetup planned by GroupTrek travel, and it is going to be a blast. We are going to visit four wineries on the historic, scenic Natchez Trace. (There is a fifth winery on the trail, at Belle Meade Plantation, but we will do that one separately at another time.)

We will meet at 9 a.m. at 100 Oaks Mall and ride on a motor coach to Grinders Switch Winery, Amber Falls Winery, Keg Springs Winery and Natchez Hills Vineyard & Winery. We will have tours and tastings at each winery, including a hayride at Grinders Switch, and will conclude the day with a dinner and live entertainment at Natchez Hills before the bus heads back to Nashville. The price is $74, which includes transportation to and from Nashville to all the wineries, lunch and dinner and a souvenir tasting glass. (The price is based on 40 attendees, there will be a surcharge of up to $6/person if 40 spaces are not filled to cover the bus fees.)

If you want to attend, this is what you need to do:
1. RSVP
2. Pay GroupTrek Travel. Call them at[masked] to pay by credit card (3% surcharge added) or make arrangements to bring a check on Saturday.
3. Show up that day for a fun ride in the country with great wine and food.

    Was it ever decided where exactly at the mall we will meet?

    November 9, 2012

    • Laura

      I am going to send a last-minute email out to everyone very shortly, but I think that the most out-of-the-way place will be to meet in the far lot below the movie theater over by Panera. (kind of in the middle of Panera and the movie theater)

    Hi Laura. I mailed my check in a month ago, do I need to call group trek? Or is that only for the people who plan to pay on Saturday?

    November 8, 2012

      Hi Marilyn,

    • Carol K.

      I am back from Italy now. Please call me at[masked] as soon as possible with your form of payment for the Natchez Trace Wine Trail Trip.

      November 4, 2012

  • Zoila R

    I'm trying to pay for my ticket but phone number is asking me enter 10 digit number of person I'm trying to reach. Help

    October 26, 2012

    • Carol K.

      Sorry my voice mail is not working. I am still in Italy, and sometimes the system does not allow you to leave a message for some reason. Don't worry about your payment. I'll contact you as soon as possible after I return on 11/1 and will take care of your payment then. I look forward to meeting you! Carol

      October 28, 2012

    • Carol K.

      I got delayed in Italy because of the hurricane and couldn't get back until yesterday. Please call me at[masked] as soon as possible so I can take care of your payment.

      November 4, 2012

  • Carol K.

    I just wanted to let everyone know that my flights have been cancelled tomorrow from Rome that were routing throug JFK and American can't get me back until late Friday. I'm sorry I haven't been available to take your credit or debit card payments by phone. Please call me this weekend and I'll take care of your payments then!

  • Laura

    I will let everyone know the exact location when we get closer to the date.

    October 15, 2012

  • Susan

    quick question though..where at..100 oaks mall, do we need to park/meet? any specific spots/landmarks to look for?

    October 15, 2012

  • Susan

    check mailed today. sounds like a great event and really looking forward to it!

    October 15, 2012

  • Laura

    I think the max you can sign up for guests is two (system default) so if they didn't sign up under their own names, they might not be counted. How are we doing in payments? Have people been sending their checks in? Are we almost full?

    October 14, 2012

  • Carol K.

    I just took an order for Stacy Cline who signed up for 1 and mentioned bringing 4 others. Are you counting his additional 4 in the 28 people attending?

    October 14, 2012

  • Carol K.

    I'm looking forward to meeting all of you and escorting a fun event. Tell your family & friends all about it so we can fill up the bus!

    October 5, 2012

    • Laura

      Carol, Thank you SO MUCH for planning this for us. It is going to be a great day!!!!

      October 5, 2012

    • Carol K.

      You're welcome! I can't wait to meet some members of your group & drink some terrific wine!

      October 14, 2012

  • Stacy C.

    I cant wait! Bringing some of my family from out of town....

    October 14, 2012

  • Laura

    Pay group trek ahead of time. If we don't have 40 people we may each have to pay a couple extra bucks for the bus. I will let you know. It is a good deal. I saw another trip that was more than ours and only 3 of the wineries and no dinner!

    October 4, 2012

  • Christi W.

    I thought I saw on a recent post where we are supposed to bring money the day of the event to pay. Is this correct, or do we need to pay in advance to GroupTrek Travel?

    October 4, 2012

  • Laura

    Should be back at the mall by then.

    October 4, 2012

  • laura

    Will the motor coach actually be back at the mall by 9pm, or leaving Natchez Hills then?
