Verdict on Traveling Vineyard

Does the Traveling Vineyard scam exist?

Of course not!

It’s 100% legit and a very good retail focused compensation plan.

The best thing to do is to test out their wines and see how you like them compared to the ones you are used to and go from there.

Overall a great network marketing company that gets a lot right.
