Santa Barbara Wine Tour with Picnic Lunch

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
Enjoy a unique wine country experience with knowledgeable guides and a friendly atmosphere. Your personal guide will pick you up at your hotel or centrally located Airbnb within Summerland, Montecito, Santa Barbara, Goleta, Solvang, and Buellton. The five to six hour small group tour has a maximum of ten guests and will consist of four tastings at various wineries. Included with each tour is an artisan picnic lunch at one of the winery stops. This is an all inclusive tour with door-to-door service, tasting fees and a lunchtime picnic. We spend about forty five minutes at each winery visit.
  • In-depth Santa Barbara wine country tour for a deep dive into the region’s vino
  • Guided tours and tastings at four area vineyards (tasting fees included)
  • Gourmet picnic lunch in an idyllic winery setting
  • Travel with a small group of 10 or fewer for an intimate atmosphere
  • No need to rent a car or worry about choosing a designated driver
What to Expect
Start your tour of Santa Barbara's coastal mountain wineries with convenient hotel pickup. Climb in to a waiting Mercedes-Benz Sprinter with your guide and group of no more than 10. The intimate atmosphere guarantees plenty of attention from your guide. Leave the driving to your guide and take in the Santa Barbara scenery on the way to each winery, where you'll visit tasting rooms and learn about local viniculture. Stroll though vineyards, meet winemakers, and learn about area wine. Visiting with a group and guide instead of as an independent traveler means the trip is seamlessly planned, with all tasting fees included. You'll also be provided with an artisan picnic lunch. With a dedicated driver, you can relax and enjoy the wine without worrying about driving back to your hotel, which is where you’ll be drop-off at the end of the tour.

Yes. With assistance, you should be able to get in and out of the van. Otherwise, everything is accessible and not an exertion. Best to check with the tour company about the van.
