My husband and I went up to Santa Barbara following Christmas spent in Vegas. Cloud Climbers had been recommended to us by friends who'd done the trip in the summer and it seriously didn't disappoint.
We like our wine but wouldn't class ourselves as experts by any stretch of the imagination and this tour was perfect for us. Not stuffy at all, a very relaxed and informal attitude to wine and wine tasting. Our guide Jason was great fun, knowledgeable (about wine and also a really random array of things) and interesting - knew when to leave us alone and when to give us the patter. The other couple on our tour were superb, we had so much fun and all in all it made for a great day.
Whilst I didn't stumble across many wines that I'd pay to have shipped to the UK, the sandwich we had for lunch was divine (Paninos I think..) and the scenery was absolutely stunning.
All in all, if you're not a wine snob, this is a fantastic way to spend a day in Santa Barbara and I can't recommend it highly enough.
