We thoroughly enjoyed the Grapes and Hops tour we did with Wine Edventures. Each winery we visited had a different feel to it. The wines were fantastic. Our guide Shawn kept the tour interesting and entertaining. We appreciated the fact that we didn't have to drive at all which made it easier to enjoy the experience. I highly recommend this... More

Had a fantastic day with Antonio visiting lovely wineries, tasting great wine, and learning about the wine history of the Santa Barbara region. The boutique wineries were such a pleasure to explore along with the vineyard and wine processing tours Antonio provided. The wines were across-the-board good, and we bought quite a few to take home. The day more than... More

My family and I had a wonderful afternoon wine tasting and touring in Santa Barbara, thanks to Shawn. Shawn took the time to before the tour began to know each passenger's name. We set off and he had each of us talking, sharing who and where we were from and laughing all the way. The other reason this tour was... More

You will meet a lot of... More

We were picked up from our Santa Barbara hotel and despite there being just the two of us on the tour for the day, Shawn kept us entertained and interested for the whole trip for three local vinyards and one brewery. As we are from the UK we had a lot to learn about the local area, wine production, local... More

We had a group of four with one non-wine drinker so we took the Grapes and Hops tour. Tonio arrived right on time at our rental house in Montecito and we had the whole van to ourselves! He was very flexible and tailored the tour to our requests. We loved learning about wine and enjoyed Tonio's guidance and knowledge; it... More

The trip takes in 3 wineries, giving a tasting at each, followed by a visit to Figueroa Brewery where you sample 8 of their beers. Also included was... More

Went on the wine tour today. There were 8 in our group. We visited Four wineries, all with very different types of wine and different feels. Tonio, our guide, was very knowledgeable and answered questions but didn't overload you with info. Lunch was good, the settings were gorgeous. It is well worth the time and money!!
