No trip to the Santa Ynez Valley or Santa Barbara is complete without a tour of the nearby wineries.
After establishing your pickup location (Santa Ynez Valley or Santa Barbara hotels) and time, you will be greeted by your personal driver and guide to begin your tour. Watch scenic vineyards and rolling hills zip by as you head toward your first winery. In the spring and the summer, yellow mustard explodes across the landscape, while fat grapes hang from vines during the early fall.
After completing your first premium tasting at a local, handpicked winery, you will stop for a 3-course picnic lunch to fortify yourself before continuing. Sip crisp whites to chase away the summer heat or indulge in bold reds as you sink into a new state of relaxation before loading back onto your party vehicle and moving on to tasting number two.
Continue the day much as it started by sampling wines from high-quality producers while learning the secrets of wine country from the knowledgeable staff. After your third or fourth tasting, depending on the time and your group's pace, it's time to say goodbye and head back to your accommodation.
