Santa Ynez Wine Tour

Duration: 06:00 (Approx.)

Your group will be picked up by air-conditioned van in the morning at a prearranged meeting spot. We will preview the day and head up to our first winery in the Santa Ynez Valley. Once there, winery staff takes us for a barrel room tour and tastings before we head out to the next stop. Your guides will cover local human history and insight into wine region along the way.

Lunch will be served in the shade at a favorite winery. Your guides will allow you to hand-select from a menu of delicious lunch choices. Sandwiches, salads and more, all with fresh, local ingredients. Cold beverages and bottled water will be provided throughout the tour.

We visit 3 of our local favorites in the area. Each winery has its unique vintages and award winning selections. Winery staff offer insight into specific blends and selections, and several wineries extend discounts on wine purchases to our guests.

We are usually done by 3 or 4pm, heading back to town. Departure and arrival times are flexible. The trip has received rave reviews from guests.

We offer private tours where you can choose the wineries for an extra fee.
