Thank you Scott!! What an incredible day. The tour round the Santa Ynez Valley was a brilliant insight into the various wineries, and we were treated so well. We had private tastings in the most wonderful venues, and of course some great wines! Would recommend over and over again. Scott is incredibly knowledgable, and we won't be buying wine from... More

What a fantastic experience! We've just finished our day with Scott, co-owner of Sustainable Wines, who gave us a fabulous insight into some of the small, boutique vineyards in the Santa Ynez. We visited 3 very different vineyards, all passionate about the wine they produce and how it is produced. All the different wines we tasted were of the highest... More

Scott was an amazing tour guide and took us to three great boutique wineries! We loved getting to know the people behind the labels and learned to appreciate smaller companies as they put their heart and soul into their work. I will never purchase another bottle of wine without knowing where it comes from as I want to support these... More

We had a great private tour with Scott on 8/11/2016. I have previously gone on the group tour back in 2012, so I knew that I liked the company. The email and phone correspondence was fantastic in arranging our private tour. Scott was extremely knowledgeable about the area and created a specific itinerary based out our preferences. Scott picked up... More

Well, where to start? To quickly summarize it: amazing, just amazing! We had a private day with Brian and it was worth every penny! Visited 3 wineries, had an amazing lunch, got to ride a new Tesla. And I don't think you really need to be "super into" wine to like this (even though I am). But i brought my... More

We were in Santa Barbara for a friend's wedding and decided to spend a few days in nearby Santa Ynez about 30 miles away. It is a heavenly area blessed with perfect microclimates for Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes. Here is a brief description from their local wine association: "The Sta. Rita Hills American Viticulture Appellation is located on California’s... More

We had an amazing day touring Santa Barbara wine country. Scott was enthusiastic, knowledgable and just downright fun! The wineries chosen for us to visit were unforgettable. We will definitely book another trip with Sustainable Vine Wine Tours!

This was our first group tour, and also first to the Santa Barbara area. We thought we were spoiled in the past having done a private tour in Napa, and had lower expectations for the group tour with Bryan, just due to the nature it was a group tour. Our expectations were exceeded! Bryan's background and now current knowledge of... More

All the prior reviews are right. These guys are excellent!! We were picked up on time in a Mercedes SUV and got to visit 3 small vineyards that are not open to the public. Each of the vineyards had a unique specialty. No one rushed us. We spent approx 90 minutes at each vineyard. Each stop included a tour and... More
