Overview
Let someone else handle the driving on this guided tour of Santa Barbara’s wine region. Your guide takes you to vineyards, boutique wineries, wine cellars, and tasting rooms where you’ll sample a range of wines. Learn about the varietals and blends that put the Santa Ynez Valley on California’s winemaking map, and have a gourmet picnic lunch at a scenic location. A small-group size means plenty of personal attention.

What to Expect
Start your wine tour with hotel pickup at the designated time. Travel in an air-conditioned van that accommodates up to 12 passengers as you visit wineries, vineyards, cellars, and tasting rooms. You’ll taste current vintage releases at four venues, and your guide will share commentary about the history, varietals, and significance of each winery. Expect ample time for tasting and purchases (optional) at each location. If you want to buy bottles to take home, you can store them in the van during the tour. You’ll also take a break for a leisurely picnic lunch at a winery or another scenic locale. Head back to your hotel with drop-off in the late afternoon or early evening, depending on the location.

Tyler took us to four wineries in our adventure. Two Of the four were right up my alley with private, small setting, educational tastings. The other two were filled with people, live music and more. There is something for everyone on this tour. Loved the van, very comfortable.
