My partner and I had such a great time on this wine tour. It was a small group, only 3 couples, so it felt very Covid-safe, which was important to us. All the places we visited were small-batch winemakers, which was cool because we got to try things we’d never see in the store, and if we enjoyed what we tried, we were able to buy bottles and/or sign up for wine clubs. Tom himself Who runs the wine tour was super helpful. I spoke to him on the phone a couple times because I had to reschedule do to all the Covid precautions. He took care of us very well and it was greatly appreciated. Highly recommend!

We were hestitant to take a tour with all the covid restrictions but were happy we did! We were a party of 6 and had our own van. We had a wonderful time tasting great wines, and felt completely safe. Tom was very friendly and respectful of all the safety restrictions. He took us to a some nice little boutique wineries, where we did a barrel room tasting and picked grapes off the vines. We would do it again and recommend it to anyone visiting Solvang.

September 2020 was our first time visit to the Santa Barbara. Our trip from Roseville CA was pre-planned even before the fires in Northern California. What was blessing to have a break from the smoke in the Central Valley. While staying in Solvang we scheduled a wine tour. Tom was very personable and easy to communicate regarding the tour. We were picked up on time. We were the only ones on the tour so it felt like a private tour. We visited a small private tasting of small batch wineries. We really enjoyed the private barrel tasting on the Flores Family winery. I would definitely recommend Artisan Wine Tours for a more intimate wine tour experience instead of the larger high production wineries.

We did a great wine tour with Tom this past week. He picked us up in his extremely clean, Covid safe van and we visited two small boutique wine producers and one medium size winery. All had different things to offer and we enjoyed each one. During our second stop we had a wonderful picnic lunch provided by Tom from one of our favorite deli’s in Los Olivos. The last winery provided a great backdrop for some fantastic photo opportunities in their vineyards. Don’t hesitate to book Tom and this tour for a day out in the Santa Ynez wine valley.
