What a crazy year it has been!
We, the new owners of Idaho Wine Tours, wanted to send out a little message from us to you!
Angel Hayes and Phylicia Stitzel started the year like any other, both working in the Idaho wine industry and enjoying time with our families. Then, Phylicia started a new business and left the safe arms of employment and started Vintage Vine Marketing, a marketing agency designed specifically for wineries! Angel was on board and supportive of this new venture as soon as she heard about it.
A few months into 2018 the Idaho Wine Commission held their annual meeting, having attended this meeting in prior years, Phylicia knew this would be both educational and a great networking event. This is where the relationship between Joel, Idaho Wine Tours, Phylicia and Angel began. Joel offered to give us a private tour with Idaho Wine Tours and in March we had a lovely afternoon touring around the Sunnyslope Wine Region.
Many months passed and then out of the blue Joel emailed Phylicia to ask if she would be interested in becoming the new owner of Idaho Wine Tours! 30 seconds after reading the email about a dozen times Phylicia called Angel and asked, "So do you want to go into business with me?"
Now here we are! We have a lot of dreams and aspirations for the growth of Idaho Wine Tours but we also want to respect the roots that this company was built upon. Our ultimate goal is to help grow and educate both locals and tourists alike about the Idaho Wine industry. We will be expanding into the Garden City Urban wineries starting in December of 2018 and we will be continuing to grow our relationships and add more wineries on the Sunnyslope and surrounding areas.
