Driving by Enchanted Forest two lovers giggled about the word enchanted; the unknown magic this meaningful word represented; not knowing the impact it would make on them one day in their future.

Still in love with each other, and wanting to provide the magical love they share with their clients, Tara suggested Enchanted There was no other choice for the name. With a Passenger van hold up to 15 for tours in and about town larger groups, and 2 limos both are stretch with one a super stretch.
Imagine a few couples getting together, or the gal pals congregating for an afternoon or evening of travel, fun, and great company. The wine tours offer just that. Based on time frame, 4-6 hours will give you 3-4 winery’s for a tour. This is one of their specialties and after this quarantine, the local wineries are going to need our support as much as we need the social gatherings and fun!
Airport runs, wine tours , weddings bachelor parties, dinner engagements, concerts, sports events are their normal clients. “I have learned a lot, but there is always more to learn…Bigger companies just don’t offer the personal experiences that we offer,” he says. Every car is detailed to perfection, stocked with personal touches , and customized for the client.
Angelica Bowen is the face of this company and the promoter that everyone sees. She is 1 of 3 drivers, and handles most of the paperwork, but her passion is to embrace the service she provides for wine tour groups.
Every year they raise donations and give kids for rides with Santa in the limo around Washington Park and tour the lighted wonderland. They even surprised a family who fell on difficult times despite working so hard, and turned around their Christmas. This kind of personal involvement and commitment to the community that is truly uplifting.
A pick up from South Bend airport was Grete Eliassen and she was kicking around the idea about making a podcast regarding skiing and Brett’s story of how this company started was the inspiration for her to start it. She reached out to him to invited him to her first release as a thank you for the inspiration. She even signed a red bull can (her sponsor) for his personal wall of Fame.
