Where I Work: Cottonwood Wine Tours

The Where I Work series explores San Antonio’s evolving workplaces. It takes readers behind the scenes to learn from the people who work at companies large and small, nonprofits, family-owned enterprises, and in other nontraditional workplaces. Get in touch to share your story.

It is a beautiful morning and I’m picking up the Cottonwood Wine Tours van. The van has been readied by my co-worker Adam, who maintains the vans in pristine condition. Today I am picking up my guests at their home. I have a personally prepared wine tour planned for them, based on their interests and tastes in wine. My guests today are a group of military personnel who are going to be transferred to other bases. They wanted a fun and special day together before their last farewell.

 My favorite part of this work is that I get to spend the day with folks from all over the world and from all walks of life. I have all types of groups such as bridal parties, people celebrating birthdays or anniversaries, and visitors to our city.

I have been fortunate to work for Matt and Brandy Garcia, owners of Cottonwood Wine Tours and Texian Tours, for three years. The small staff is tight-knit, and the Garcias are always supportive of us. It definitely feels like a family.
