Our group of 4 couples had a great day in the Santa Ynez Valley. Karina was wonderful and knowledgeable. Even though we had big differences in our wine knowledge all of us enjoyed the day and learned a lot. The 3 small locations we visited were different from one another with knowledgeable hosts/ winemakers and great wine. Karina organized a great day and our van was comfortable for all of us. Lunch at a vineyard under shade and next to a pond was wonderful as well. We all highly recommend Sustainable Wine Tours.

We had a great experience from start to finish with this tour group and took a little bit of Santa Barbara home with us. Our tour guide picked us up at our hotel and was extremely knowledgeable about all things wine related as well as the history of Santa Barbara wine country. We went to three private locations and each was unique in their own little way. We can’t give specific names on the review but our favorite experience was the first vineyard that we visited. Learning about how our vineyard host got into wine making after coming from a very different background gave the entire experience a personal touch. We felt truly welcomed on their property and it was just a great way to start the day. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone considering visiting wine country in Santa Barbara. We would definitely go on this again to experience some of their other private connections.

Tour guide picked us up in a great van and was very fun and knowledgeable. We were 8 people in total. Visited absolutely beautiful vineyards that showed us first class hospitality. Apparent Sustainable Wine Tours has an excellent reputation with the local Vineyards. One of our favorite things we did while in the area.

We had such a wonderful time on our tour! Steven, our guide, was so knowledgeable about wine, the local region, & it’s growers. He was a great story teller as well! He even offered us all great suggestions on dinner options in Santa Barbara for after our tour. All of the locations we visited were unique as well as exclusive. I learned A LOT about what makes a great wine great. This is by far the GREATEST tour I’ve ever done! It beats out the Napa tours & the Lodi tours I’ve done. I will DEFINITELY do this again with my husband next time (I went with my best friend on a “girls weekend”). I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS TOUR! 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
