After pickup from your hotel, set out in the morning by luxury van to the Santa Ynez Valley. On arrival, the winery staff hosts a wine tasting while your guide prepares your cycling equipment. Once you're fitted with a comfortable bicycle, you'll pedal on to the second winery. You'll pass by several beautiful ranches & other points of interest, such as Summerset Farm & Dale's Nursery, Ponzo Equine Center & the quaint town of Ballard. Cold beverages & water are provided throughout the day. On arrival, enjoy your next tasting while your guide prepares a deli-style picnic lunch with plenty of options. Our two most frequented favorites on this bike tour are The Brander Vineyard & Rideau Vineyard. Each establishment offers vintages & award-winning selections & may extend discounts on wine purchases. You'll gain insight into specific blends & selections from the winery staff, including managers & winemakers who may appear at private tastings.
