My boyfriend and I usually come to Solvang for the annual prelude in November, but this year we decided that because I had just turned 21 and it was our anniversary on the 16th, we wanted to do a wine tasting tour instead. The reviews for Grapeline are impeccable, so I immediately booked for a Saturday tour. Our host, Cris (forgive me if it actually begins with a 'K'), was fantastic; fun, eager to share information, and always energetic. Our driver, Jay, was awesome too, making sure we were all comfortable and safe getting from place to place. We were in a group of 17, including ourselves, and everyone was really fun. The four wineries we visited were great, all from the wines they allowed us to taste, to the views and spaces they boasted. We even got to visit an extra tasting room in the heart of Solvang, which was a fun treat and a testament to Grapeline's eager-to-please customer service. All thumbs up from both the boy and I!
(We also really enjoyed the Sweet Caroline sing-a-long that occurred after the third winery--thanks Cris for the awesome tunes!)

My wife and I were in Santa Barbara to celebrate our anniversary, and because we both love wine we thought that a wine tour would be a great way to spend a day. Our driver, Tom, made the day even better than we expected. He provided a wealth of information about the area, the wineries, and he pointed us to some wines that we might otherwise have missed. He made the day fun and relaxing, and to top it off he gave us a recommendation for one of the best Italian restaurants that we've experienced. Grapeline is the way to go!

Visiting 4 wineries using a shuttle service is the way to go. You can relax, enjoy your many wine tastings, have fun with your friends and no worries of a traffic violation. Tom was our guide and provided much info about the valley wineries. He was very attentive to his guests and made sure we received what we paid for. Money spent was very worthwhile. Even though we were behind in schedule, he made it work. Would use them again.

We had Tom as our guide. He was attentive to our needs and tailored to the trip more to what we were looking for. He was able to help us with wine selections and even able to get some additional tastings for wines that we liked even better. He even during the day was helping us track down a charger for our camera. Very knowledgeable, great guide.

I booked this tour as part if a birthday gift. I have to say, David was such a fantastic tour guide. We had an amazing time with him, learning and debating over wine. We are a hard audience to please and he made our tour very special and a memory we will keep forever. These guys take you to the best wineries for whatever wines you're interested in and arriving with them almost guarantees you good service from the winery. We will most definitely recommend them and do this again.
