YOU KNOW WHAT PAIRS BEAUTIFULLY WITH THE GREAT OUTDOORS? WINE.
Let’s face it. Wine goes with everything. Bachelor or bachelorette party? Wine. Special occasion with your significant other? Wine. Team building for work? Double wine. Kids with you on vacation? Triple wine.
Although we don’t recommend mixing heavy machinery with the nectar of the gods in your everyday life, we definitely recommend it when it comes to the Gravel & Grape wine tasting tours (especially since your ride home is pre-arranged by Stellar Adventures).
Wine Tasting Tours with the H1 Hummer
The Gravel & Grape wine tasting tours combine two iconic elements of the Arizona experience: Exploring the Sonoran Desert in a H1 Hummer with Stellar Adventures, and enjoying world-class wines and food from one of Arizona’s favorite restaurants, Postino. This tour is wildly popular for bachelor and bachelorette outings, groups celebrating special occasions, or team-building or corporate events. It’s also totally family-friendly, so if you have the offspring with you, don’t let that stop you from enjoying a perfect Arizona day on the Gravel & Grape tour!
Let’s dive into the two parts of the Gravel & Grape wine tasting tour: The H1 Hummer excursion and the Postino Highland experience.
FIRST UP: THE H1 HUMMER.
This ride is the perfect match for the ruggedness of desert terrain. It easily climbs vertical walls nearly two feet high, can scale a 60° incline with ease, and can ford a gushing rapid two and a half feet deep. There’s a reason the United States Army deploys and transports its troops in the Hummer—this ride is big, it’s bold, and it’s badass. The H1 Hummer off-road vehicle is perfect for the rough-and-tumble rider who prefers an up close and personal experience. Mud, gravel, water, boulders—they’re no match for the H1 Hummer. Coast along desert trails high above the ground, and feel confident in the ability of this 4 x 4 to conquer any terrain it encounters.
NOW LET’S TALK WINE.
Can you imagine anything more refreshing after an exhilarating ride through the desert than a glass of Prosecco or Chardonnay? Because we can’t. At the end of your trail exploration, you’ll end up at Postino Highland—a veritable mecca of all things wine, relaxation, and the chillest vibes in Scottsdale. Not much of a wino? Don’t worry. Postino also has amazing beers on tap and in the bottle. We’ll pull some strings and get you a beer or two… We know a guy.
Mention Postino to anyone from the Valley of the Sun and you’ll probably see a faraway, wistful look in their eye as they fondly recall the last time they basked on the patio of this Arizona institution. The staffers at Postino are painfully cool but also warm and welcoming. Most importantly, they know their stuff. Postino is respected all across Arizona (and beyond) for sourcing not only the best local and regional wines, but also for bringing in tastes from all around the world!
NO, WE’RE NOT OVERSELLING THIS.
We get it. We’re kind of talking a big game here. But one thing you should know by now is that we walk the walk just as much as we talk the talk. Stellar Adventures and Postino are where it’s at, and after a mind-blowing day exploring the Sonoran Desert, you’ll love sitting on the patio at Postino, sipping different wines, and nibbling on samples of their world-class bruschetta or other delicious offerings. That’s right—your tour wraps up with a wine sampler as well as incredible food pairings, custom-selected with your preferences in mind.
One of our favorite things about the Postino and Stellar Adventures partnership is that it showcases how multifaceted Arizona is. We’re so much more than just a pretty face with world-class trails, stunning desert views, and plentiful offerings for the avid outdoorsman. We’re also a state with badass restaurateurs and sommeliers; people who are passionate about sourcing and providing some of the best wine and food around, often from local vendors. When you sign up for the Gravel & Grape wine tasting tours through Stellar Adventures, you’re guaranteed to have an incredible time with both the knowledgeable and fun Chief Adventurers and the top-tier team at Postino.
YOU’RE A CONTROL FREAK? THAT’S COOL, TOO.
Good news! Your time at Postino takes place at the end of the tour, and the Stellar Adventures team will take care of getting you back to your hotel. So if you prefer to be in the driver’s seat, how does the front of an ATV or UTV sound? With these options, you’re in charge! Just ask the Stellar Adventures booking team how to swap out the H1 Hummer for an ATV or a UTV, and away we (well, you) go!
