Santa Barbara Wine Tour with Picnic Lunch

Sip wine at Santa Barbara tasting rooms and feast on a gourmet picnic lunch on this small-group winery tour. With round-trip hotel transportation in a Mercedes-Benz Sprinter, there’s no worrying about a designated driver, and you can travel light as lunch is provided. All tasting fees for the four wineries visited on the trip are included. Plus, traveling with a small group of no more than 10 keeps the atmosphere intimate.

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.
