Great day!
Candice_H, Jun 2022
This tour was one of the best tours we’ve done! It was very small group and the wineries were amazing. The first one was exquisitely beautiful for the wine tasting. The second one was a lot of teaching and Tasting great wines. The third one had an amazing view and the owner/winemaker was fantastic. She even took us out to see her vines and explain how she manages them. Her wines were amazing. The lunch Steven (our guide) served was delicious. I will definitely do this tour again!!!

Not your ordinary wine tasting
Anne_P, Mar 2022
The interactions with the actual winemakers was wonderful. We could feel the passion and love for their work in their talks. This was an incredible opportunity to learn about the Santa Barbara wine regions and to taste some truly unique wines. We thoroughly enjoyed our day. Steve was a phenomenal guide. The lunch was delicious and the drive gorgeous.
Just sign up! Won’t regret!
Amber_A, Mar 2022
Cortina was extremely knowledgeable. She provided Interesting facts about wine, the places we were going and the wine makers. She instantly made everyone feel comfortable and got to know each person individually! By the end of the trip everyone was talking and celebrating with each other and she was a major reason for this. I would recommend this company and her to anyone interested in doing a wine tour!
Great way to see wine country

One of the best wine tours I've done
Peg_F, Feb 2022
Everything from the communication before the trip to the winery venues selected was excellent. Karina was so engaging and knowledgeable - I feel I really learned alot about the region which was new to me. The day was very well organized and the 2 other couples on the tour were great. By the end of the day it felt like we were old friends! I would definitely do this one again to see some different wineries. All in all a fabulous day!
Beautiful place!!!!

Steven was an exceptional and knowledgeable guide! Every vineyard we visited was unique, with an incredible wine presentation!
Perfect way to visit Santa Barbara area wineries
Barbara_L, Nov 2021
Loved the entire day, all parts were our favorite, picked up at our house and went to 3 very different and good wineries. Loved meeting Sean, the wine maker, and all was exactly as promised and expected. This area reminded me of Sonoma about 30 yrs ago and that’s a good thing. You will not be disappointed in this adventure.
Wonderful experience,...
