Santa Barbara Wine Lovers Tour

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
On this 5 to 7.5 hour tour(depending on pick up location), your guides will pick you up from your accommodations and whisk you away for a fun-filled, carefree day. Just sit back, relax and enjoy the beauty and wonderful, world-class premium boutique wineries in Santa Barbara wine country. This is an extremely fun and very educational wine tour!
  • Visit three to four wineries for tastings 
  • Learn about California’s wine history from your guide
  • Get an insider’s look at Santa Barbara’s winemaking culture
  • Travel safely between locations with a designated driver
  • Enjoy a leisurely picnic lunch
What to Expect
Start your wine tour with hotel pickup at the designated time. Travel in an air-conditioned van that accommodates up to 12 passengers as you visit wineries, vineyards, cellars, and tasting rooms. You’ll taste current vintage releases at four venues, and your guide will share commentary about the history, varietals, and significance of each winery. Expect ample time for tasting and purchases (optional) at each location. If you want to buy bottles to take home, you can store them in the van during the tour. You’ll also take a break for a leisurely picnic lunch at a winery or another scenic locale. Head back to your hotel with drop-off in the late afternoon or early evening, depending on the location.
