Troublemaker Wine to Hit the Road for West Coast Tour

Troublemaker, the red wine blend that has become Paso Robles–based Hope Family Wines' fastest growing brand, is embarking on a road trip. The Troublemaker Bus will tour top Western U.S. markets September–November.


"We love the thrill and endless possibilities of the road, and we know each stop on the Troublemaker Tour will allow us to make personal connections with our fans," says Hope Family Wines President Austin Hope. "You know who you are. You're either on the bus, or you're off. Anyone looking for fine crystal stemware can find a traditional wine tasting. We're inviting everyone who understands that good wine goes hand in hand with good times."

The 40-foot long Airstream Skydeck, painted red to match Troublemaker's package design, comes fully stocked with Troublemaker wine and the entire Hope Family Wines portfolio. At each stop, the winery will partner with select accounts for special promotions. Troublemaker's winemakers and winery staff are inviting wine lovers over the age of 21 to visit the bus for a taste, or to stay and relax for a while on the roof.

Full details on the tour will be updated online at Visitors will be encouraged to join the conversation online via Twitter (@TroubleMkrWine) and Instagram (@TroublemakerWine) and incorporate the use of hash tags: #TroublemakerTour, #TroublemakerWine, #YouKnowWhoYouAre.
