So you can't take kids on the public wine tour buses...that's OK just book the Wine Tasting DD. We got in touch with Chris about a week ahead and making the reservation through email was a breeze. Chris confirmed the appt the night before, and Eric showed up on time at the hotel to take us through the day. This... More

Chris drove my husband and me to numerous wineries during our stay in Santa Ynez. He met us at our hotel at the exact promised time and drove us for 6 hours before taking us back to our hotel. It was a perfect arrangement. Before we went touring, Chris helped me figure out our plan for the day. There were... More

Chris drove myself and two friends for my birthday to several wineries, in my own truck! Chris was great, he was a part of the conversation, was totally funny, but not overwhelming and left us to the tasting while he read a book outside. What a great service, I work in the industry so I still see him and the... More

I used Wine Tasting DD on Saturday, September 28, 2013. A high school buddy and I met up in Santa Maria to go wine tasting for a couple days. We had done this a few times in Sonoma many years ago when the tastings were free and we were young. The plan was to drive ourselves the first day and... More

We used Chris's service to do some wine tasting. He was very responsive to my email questions and right on time for pick up. He's not much of a tour guide but he drives you where you want to go and is very nice and patient. We are definitely going to contact him next time we need a DD for... More

Why spend hundreds of dollars having a tour company rush you from winery-to-winery on a predetermined schedule... when you can have a professional driver take you to the wineries you want to go and on your timetable!?!? Eric, our driver, took us on magical trip through the wine country. He was so knowledgable about the area and the wines. Plus,... More

My husband and I wanted to go wine tasting for our Anniversary. I emailed Chris and he got back to me right away with our drivers name and phone # along with information about the wineries. Holly was our driver. She showed up early and took us on an amazing trip to 4 wineries. She was so knowledgable and very... More

This is THE way to see the wineries in the Santa Barbara area. Chris really knows the area and really knows the best wineries to visit. He was very accommodating and gave us his picks as well as allowing us to go exactly where we wanted to go. Very affordable too: Just $30 per hour and he'll drive your rental... More

My husband and I decided to go on a wine vacation in Santa Ynez valley. We have been wine tasting many times before so we knew that did not want to go with a tour group (plus the tour groups go to over-crowded, run-of-the-mill wineries that we did not want to visit and we couldn't make the 10 or 11am...

We lucked out and had a big black stretch limo which hold 8-10 people all to ourselves. The driver was TJ and was very friendly and knowledgable and took us to several wineries and provided lunch, champagne (which we forgot to take with us) a Subway lunch box, 4 hrs. around the towns and it was only $69 pp. on...
