Your day starts with morning pickup at your accommodation in Santa Barbara, Solvang, Buellton or Lompoc.

Relax aboard the air-conditioned sprinter van as your guide takes you to the first of four wineries or vineyards. You can customize your itinerary to your interests, or let your guide choose your destinations for the day. Have the option to visit to a local brewery or spirits distillery as well.

Expect to taste 5 or 6 different wines in each tasting room, learning from the staff experts about the wines and wine production process. Around the second or third stop, take a comfortable seat in a scenic vineyard for a picnic lunch that consists of a gourmet sandwich, chips, and bottled water. Your guide also provides bottled water and snacks throughout your tour.
