Wonderful Tour - totally worth it!
May 2021 • Couples
We had an awesome time! The tour was well worth the cost. Lunch was super good. Every stop we went on we got extra pours/tastings. We got to do an extra little stop for olive oil tasting! Having the wine tour curate stops was perfect as an out of town visitor not being super familiar with the region. We also loved the tasting room in Los olivios, it was a major highlight. Highly recommend!

Good wine, good times!!!
My husband and I wanted to experience Santa Ynez wine tasting on our recent getaway to Santa Barbara. We are so thankful to have used Rooted Vines tours. Eyton was a wonderful guide and driver, super personable, helpful, and fun to talk with. He took us to three very different winery experiences which made the day all the more enjoyable. The picnic lunch was delish as well!! :-) Shout out to our new wine tasting buddies in our van!! We made some new friends on this trip which was such a cool bonus!

Austin was a wonderful tour guide. Nice and knowledgeable. The vineyards were gorgeous, wine was fantastic. Highly recommend. I would definitely give this tour 10 stars if I could. And I would definitely go again if I came back to the Santa Bárbara area.( Only downside was my jacket I left in the tour van by mistake.) Lol other than that no complaints.

Great day-trip activity!
Jun 2019 • Couples
What a jam-packed day! Austin was a wonderful tour guide and driver, with a wealth of knowledge and friendly personality. He took our small group of four to four wineries (Koehler, Dragonette, Brander, and Pence) where we tasted the day away! Lunch was delicious, and there were plenty of options to choose from. The drive was beautiful through and around Santa Barbara.

My only suggestions are to serve lunch after 2 winery stops instead of 3 (we needed a food break earlier, after all that tasting). And to offer shipping options (I understand it can be tricky depending on where you ship to). We purchased a shipping box at our first winery, and filled it with 10 bottles to take home with us. We ended up checking it as luggage and successfully got our wine home. But an opportunity to have it packaged and shipped through the tour would have been awesome.

Would absolutely recommend!

The tour was great! Iaon was very accommodating and knowledgeable throughout the day. Everything on the menu for the picnic lunch sounded amazing but Iaon recommended a few of his favorites that were great.
The four wineries we went to were different from one another and provided a lot of variation that we wanted. It was refreshing taste wine from these independent wine makers and be able to meet some of them as well.
Ya’ll should check it out!

Should Say Tasting Room Tour instead of Vineyard
Nov 2018 • Couples
I was very disappointed with this tour. We booked it to go see and taste wine at different vineyards in Santa Barbara and we got two tasting rooms that were terrible and two vineyards. I could have saved the hour there and back from Santa Barbara if I wanted to taste wine in a bar/tasting room. It was very lazy on this tour guides behalf. I would not recommend this tour.

Hey Ashley, I apologize for your dissatisfaction. We visit a mixture of vineyards and small production tasting rooms as our goal is to focus on wine quality and in many cases the small artesian producers only have tasting rooms or there vineyards may not be zoned for a retail tasting room so they purvey off site. I attached our tour description below directly from our website. We would love to have you out again if you're in the area. Cheers! "Enjoy A Fun Filled Day On Our Santa Barbara Wine Country Tour.

Wine Country Tour in Santa Barbara
Oct 2018 • Friends
5 of us just took this tour in Santa Barbara and were extremely glad we did! On time pick up from our hotel in large comfortable van with water. Beautiful drive up the coast and inland. Austin our guide was friendly, informative and relaxed. We enjoyed all the wineries very much and seeing different parts of the wine country. Lunch was fantastic, we ordered from a menu with about 20 different meat or veggie sandwich and salad choices. So glad we chose this tour and I highly recommend it!

A great day out.
Jul 2018 • Couples
We arranged this tour the week before and came up to Santa Barbara especially, we were staying in SoCal but thought we'd explore the area.
What a great day we had, we were picked up from our hotel, West Beach Inn in Santa Barbara, by Austin and driven in comfort to pick up the next couple. Along the way we had a really interesting and informative talk about the land and the climate and how it impacts on the growing and taste of the wine.
There were just the 4 of us on the tour which made it feel quite personalised, we could ask the vineyard staff many questions and tried wines not on their set tasting list. Lunch choices were great and the food was tasty and filling, Austin went off to collect it whilst we were at a tasting.
One of the tasting rooms Austin had planned to take us to in Solvang was closed when we got there but he immediately made a phone call and drove us to another nearby.
With plenty of wines to taste and great company, we had a fantastic day and will definitely return using Rooted Vines again.
We gained a lot of information on this trip about Santa Barbara wines, we wish we could get more in the UK, we'll definitely be looking out for them.
