Santa Barbara Vineyard to Table Taste Tour by Bike

    What to Expect
    Depart your Santa Barbara pick up location at 9am in the comfort of a brand new air-conditioned high top shuttle van for a scenic drive over San Marcos Pass and into Santa Ynez Valley, Santa Barbara's gorgeous wine country.  Upon arrival, get fitted to your Specialized comfort hybrid bike and begin your guided tour of the region.  The ride will take your past a Lavender Farm, beautiful ranches, small private vineyards, and gorgeous sprawling estate vineyards.  Get a chance to trek through the local towns and experience a quaint Danish village. We have three versions of our riding course to ensure the right amount of comfort or challenge to suit your desire.

    At the conclusion of the ride in the noon hour, experience the fruit of the vineyards you just passed in the glass at an award winning tasting room in Los Olivos.  Expect to be treated like a VIP when you arrive and enjoy learning about wine from your guide and the friendly tasting room staff.

    Afterward, whet your appetite before lunch with a tasting of local olive oils and balsamic at a charming olive farm.  From there, stroll the grounds of and established and lovely estate winery where another tasting and thoughtfully prepared and presented gourmet picnic lunch await you.  The fresh locally sourced ingredients are just the thing to both pair with your wine and re-invigorate you after your active tour.

    The estate winery experience concludes early in the 3 o'clock hour and you are brought back to Santa Barbara in the comfort of the van by about 4pm, recharged and ready for an evening in our fair city.

    Relaxing and scenic ride through the Santa Barbara wine country. Lots of fun, William is knowledgeable and very personable man. If you are not fairly fit, don’t try the regular bikes. The e-bikes are worth the extra cost! My wife and I bike along the coast often and enjoy

    Perfect blend of biking and drinking. Very fun and recommend for everyone. Our guide was amazing. If biking 10ish or so miles is too much then you can get an e-bike too.

    Great experience combining both biking and wine tasting. Would have been nice to spend a bit more time in Solvang. Great wine tasting vineyards and hosts. William is the best, though; he is very understanding and flexible, as well as nice! Just maybe more padding on the bike

    Biking with William was a great experience. William is very knowledgeable when it comes to the wines, and the terrains of Los Olivos & Solvang. This is a great tour for people with experience in biking and people with zero experience in biking. William takes the time to make you

    William is a GREAT tour director. If you REALLY love biking - especially challenging hills - you will be into this tour. I was looking for more wine, less hills!

    Thank you for the nice words. Just wanted to respond to your comments for anyone considering our tour. We always have three different distance options available to allow for less climbing (or none at all :) ) and more tasting. We are always happy to support different amounts of riding and provide van support to customize your tour. There are many mentions of this in the reviews here, or just ask us for more information. We love wine and want to share this experience with riders of all levels. E-bikes are available on request too.
