Santa Barbara Wine Tour with Picnic Lunch
314 reviews
Sip wine at Santa Barbara tasting rooms and feast on a gourmet picnic lunch on this small-group winery tour. With round-trip transportation in a Mercedes-Benz Sprinter from selected hotels, there’s no worrying about a designated driver, and you can travel light as lunch is provided. All tasting fees for the three wineries visited on the trip are included. Plus, traveling with a small group of no more than 10 keeps the atmosphere intimate.
